Journey of 2700+ pages begins with the first 900+ page book

Neal Stephenson is some sort of masochist…

I know this may be old news, but I recently had the urge to dust off my copy of Quicksilver and give it another go. I’ll admit, it is going to be a big undertaking.

I mean, after the TOME that Cryptonomicon was, he releases a new three part series, with each book the size of Cryptonomicon?

I am sorry, but if a book weighs more than my baby, it’s too freaking big.
