Both Cryptonomicon and Snow Crash have been in my library for quite some now, and I've received enough warm praise of both to be quite convinced to read them; I just haven't found the time yet...

oh, you don't have to read *snowcrash*

It's only one of the best written books to have been published in the past 20 years, its style is giddy and ideas exciting, it's only a bunch of ink on a page...

But you don't *have* to read it.
