    and past the point where I wonder if I'm going to keep on -- I know I will because I'm invested enough in the characters at this point and I feel at home in that world. But not a heck of a lot has happened so far, after many hours of listening, and the one big dramatic event would have been very small potatoes in Cryptonomicon or Reamde. I imagine it'll have more tension and action now, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it's going. But I have to say, it helps that it's an audiobook & I've been doing a lot of things that make listening to audio convenient. I'm not sure I'd have stuck with a print or ebook this long waiting to bond with it.

      but I have faith in Stephenson's bold imagination, and if he wants to reach, I'll go along for the ride. Eventually.
