Quicksilver, by Neal Stephenson

Too bloody long, it’s taken me nearly six months to get through, I don’t know how anyone with a life does it. Although modern man may look forward to a century of life, I’d rather not have to spend it reading tomes like this. How about an Edwardian cycle Neal?

I did not really enjoy any of Jack Shaftoe’s adventures. Eliza’s stuff was definitely interesting, if somewhat unbelievable. Daniel Waterhouse’s adventures rang the most true and interesting for me.

I’m going to have trouble eating sausages after this book.
