Review: Anathem

book cover Anathem by Neal Stephenson

After the more historic Baroque Cycle, Stephenson returns to speculative sci-fi a la Diamond Age, playing with the parallel evolution of language, culture, and quantum narratives.

I enjoyed this a lot. It oddly reminded me of the Riverworld saga, but with philosophical ideas rather than characters from history making their cameos against a densely detailed unfolding backdrop and story.
