So, I’m about halfway through “Quicksilver”:http://www.nealstephenson.com/, and the first thing I want to say is that —
Aargh! Must resist . . . temptation . . . to comment before . . . I’m . . . done . . . words would be . . . premature . . . must . . . have focus . . . discipline . . . fight it . . . fight . . . there . . . winning . . . inner battle . . .
Phew. Best to wait. I’ve been maintaining a blackout on other reviews and commentary. It’s not easy. But in another week or two I hope to have a proper review, followed by plenty of other notes and comments. Until then, I’ll just try to stay focused on _reading_ the dang thing, and reserve judgment until I turn the last page.
P.S. It’s really, really good.
