I no sooner get through two pages of
- System of the World
, the “what has come before part” and realize a big part of the set up in book one has much to with what happens in book two of the Baroque Cycle. Stephenson has a way of doing that to me. I read and reread many times over, and each time there is one more plot point I missed and creates a much more encompassing and intriguing story….
And I keep telling myself I’ve found it all.
