Cryptonomicon is a RandomWalk? through the lives of two people linked by Genetics? and (to an extent) by the Geek mindset.  Against the backdrop of the SecondWorldWar? and a world not unlike todays, two interlinked stories entwine around each other, in a rather cool way.

The base theme is Cryptography, but all sorts of cute GeekStuff? and Algorithms? abound.  Unfortunatly the simple crypto algorithm NealStephenson presents has been broken since the book was published.  It also features Qwghlm? for a ComicInterlude?.  It also has a wonderful set of InfoDump?s that you can ignore or luxuriate in as you wish.

Cryptonomicon was written by NealStephenson
