Neal Stephenson

Looking for recommendations.

I am almost finished with my latest read and I have been looking at Neal Stephenson books and want to get a recommendation for a first book of his to read. I haven't read anything by Stephenson but he seems to be a cross between William Gibson and Neil Gaiman in a way, both of whom I enjoy the few books of theirs I have read.

Anthem looks interesting, as does Seveneves and Cryptonomicon.

Any recommendation would be appreciated.

Cryptonomicon can be considered a classic. A must read for any science fiction fan.

The first Stephenson book I read was Snow Crash. It was recommended to me by a friend and I really enjoyed it. Best name for a hero, EVER!

Cryptonomicon is currently $1.99. So grab it if you're interested in reading it :)

Not to be confused with the Discworld's Necrotelicomnicon. ;)
