Reviews

  • "Neal Stephenson has saved the best until last with The System of the World, a fittingly breathtaking conclusion to his Baroque Cycle, implausibly trumping all of the trilogy's previous strengths, but unfortunately introducing one weakness in that the whole rambunctiously magnificent undertaking had to end"

    Christopher Brookmyre, Glasgow Herald
  • "Truly remarkable"

    LA Times
  • "Historical fiction was never this much fun - or this successful"
