Reviews of Anathem (2008)
Review by kadambi (2008-10-17)
I would consider this to be Stephenson's best book (so far!). They keep getting better all the time.
Anathem is indeed a fantastic achievement! Sprinkled with great language (and its own glossary) and superb characters, this book is truly out of this world. I consider myself lucky to have read this.
The only thing missing in Anathem is the is the wondrous digressions, which have been part of almost every Stephenson book, which was a wee bit disappointing!!
Anathem is a page turner and would enthrall any science fiction aficionado. Go ahead, read it, and enjoy being transported into one of the best universes ever created.
