>Science Fiction: “Anathem”

This was a rather long book by Neal Stephenson (about 1000 pages).  The premise was quite interesting – a world where scientists live as monks, separated from regular people. Then a spaceship arrives and stuff starts to happen.

There are many things I liked about this book – such as inventive use of language, or some interesting ideas on multi-world interpretation of quantum dynamics – but the length of the story gets to you after a while.

I did finish the book, but at times it was a slog.
