A cryptology related novel by Neal Stephenson.

ISBN 0380973464

"For several years I have been working on a series of novels on the general subject of cryptology. Since cryptology is mathematics, which most people do not consider interesting reading, I have broadened my scope a little bit to include related fields such as Money (e.g. digital currency), War (e.g. the Enigma), and Power (e.g. crypto export controls) which can provide the basis for a more engaging yarn."

Aus einem Amazon Review:

Dank Snow Crash genießt Neal Stephenson Kultstatus unter Science-fiction-Fans und Technologie-Freaks. Das Buch hat die konventionellen Vorstellungen der High-Tech-Zukunft derart neu definiert, dass es zu einer sich selbst bewahrheitenden Voraussage wurde. Wenn dieser Cyberpunk-Klassiker groß war, dann ist Cryptonomicon riesig, enorm, gewaltig -- nicht nur wegen seiner schieren Größe (918 Seiten, inklusive Appendizes), sondern auch im Umfang und in seinem Reiz. Es ist der hippe, lesenswerte Nachfolger von Gravity´s Rainbow und der Illuminatus-Trilogie.
