Finally finished REAMDE by Stephenson. Despite the slow start it turned into a serious page turner, involving a computer virus, an MMO, an international kidnapping and chase across multiple continents, the crazy Russian mafia, british spies, terrorist jihadists, and gun-toting anti-government survivalist religious fundamentals. If you've fantasized terrorists getting their butts handed to them by US civilians, this book's climax is for you. 1000 pages long, it was the most riveting book of this length I've ever read after the slow start. Fantastic read!

Am now reading "To Say Nothing of the Dog" by Connie Willis. Another time travel yarn this time to Victorian England.
