Cryptonomicon

review Cryptonomicon Cryptonomicon Free read Å 4 Le know it exists Some of those people have names like Churchill and RooseveltTheir mission is to keep the Nazis ignorant of the fact that Allied Intelligence has cracked the enemy's fabled Enigma code Waterhouse is flung into a cryptographic chess match against his German counterpart one where every move determines the fate of thousandsIn the present day Waterhouse's crypto hacker grandson Randy is attempting to create a data haven in Southeast Asia where encrypted data can be stored and exchanged free of repression and scrutiny Joining forces with the tough as nails Amy. One of the problems when reviewing Cryptonomicon is that you could easily end up writing a short novel just trying to summarize it Here s my attempt to boil the story down to its essenceDuring World War II Lawrence Waterhouse is a genius mathematician who is part of the effort to break Japanese and German codes and his job is to keep them from realizing how successful the Allies have been by faking events that give the enemies reasons other than compromised codes to pin any losses on Marine Sergeant Bobby Shaftoe had to leave behind the woman he loves in the Philippines when the war broke out in the Pacific and after surviving some brutal island combat he finds himself assigned to a unit carrying out dangerous and weird missions that seem to have no logical goalsIn the late 90s Waterhouse s grandson Randy is an amiable computer geek who has just co founded a small company called Epiphyte that has big plans revolving around the booming Internet in the island nations of southeast Asia As powerful people with hidden agendas begin showing an interest in Epiphyte s business plan Randy hires a company in Manila owned by former Navy SEAL Douglas MacArthur Shaftoe to lay an underwater cable That s just a sideline for Doug and his daughter Amy who primarily work as treasure hunters When they make a startling discovery it links the personal history of the Waterhouses and the Shaftoes to a lost fortune in Axis goldThat makes it sound like a beach thriller or airplane read by someone like Clive Cussler rightBut I didn t mention all the math And code breaking And the development of computers And economic theories And geo politics circa 1999 And how it was ahead of the curve about personal privacy And it s about a thousand pages long And there s some other stuff too Plus Neal Stephenson doesn t feel the need to conform to anything close to a traditional three act narrative structure He s also often the writing euivalent of Clark W Griswald in the movie Vacation since he ll cheerfully divert his readers four short hours to see the second largest ball of twine on the face of the earth Sprinkled among all this are appearances by real historical figures like Alan Turing and Douglas MacArthur So what you get is a book that should be a mess of infodumps and long tangets that ultimately don t have anything to do with the story And uite frankly the ending is kind of a mess tooSo whenever I read criticism of Neal Stephenson I shrug and concede that there are many things about the guy that should make me crazy as a reader However the really odd thing is that he doesn t I ve pretty much loved every book of his I ve read despite the fact that I could list his literary sins at lengthWhat s great to me about Stephenson is that it s so obvious that he loves this stuff When he takes up a whole chapter laying out the mathematics behind code breaking it s his enthusiasm for the subject that helps carry my math challenged ass through He s not giving us elaborate histories or explanations because he did the research and wants to show off he s doing it because he s a smart guy who is excited about something so he can t help but go on at length about it The other factor that redeems him for me is his sense of humor No matter how enthused Stephenson is it d still break down in the delivery if he didn t pepper his books with some hilarious lines Sometimes even his long digressions are done solely in the interest of delivering the funny like a parody of a business plan that includes gems like this Unless you are as smart as Johann Karl Friedrich Gauss savvy as a half blind Calcutta bootblack tough as General William Tecumseh Sherman rich as the ueen of England emotionally resilient as a Red Sox fan and as generally able to take care of yourself as the average nuclear missile submarine commander you should never have been allowed near this document Please dispose of it as you would any piece of high level radioactive waste and then arrange with a ualified surgeon to amputate your arms at the elbows and gouge your eyes from their sockets This warning is necessary because once a hundred years ago a little old lady in Kentucky put a hundred dollars into a dry goods company which went belly up and only returned her ninety nine dollars Ever since then the government has been on our asses If you ignore this warning read on at your peril you are dead certain to lose everything you ve got and live out your final decades beating back waves of termites in a Mississippi Delta leper colony It s also easy to overlook how these seeming digressions help build the entire story When Randy is trying to retrieve some of his grandfather s papers from an old trunk he gets embroiled in his family s attempts to divvy up his grandparent s belongings Since the family is made up of academics a whole chapter becomes a description of a mathematical formula based on an x y grid laid out in a parking lot that allows family members to place items according to both sentimental and economic value while Randy has to try to find a way to diplomatically claim the papers There s no real reason for this scene and it could have been cut entirely or boiled down a few lines about a family suabble But the whole chapter is funny and tells us a great deal about Randy and his background by putting him in this context It doesn t accomplish anything else plot wise but it s the kind of scene that makes this book what it isEven as a fan of the way he works I still wish Stephenson could tighten some things up The goals of Epiphyte and Randy shift three or four times over the course of the novel and the drifting into and out of plots gets very problematic late in the game It also seems like Stephenson had a hard time determining exactly who the bad guys in the 1999 story should be view spoiler The stuff with Andrew Loeb a litigious asshole who once drove Randy into bankruptcy showing up as an arrow shootingknife wielding attacker wearing a business suit in the jungle at the end seems to come out of the blue since he s really only appeared in flashback form before that Even though he s the lawyer suing Epiphyt there aren t any scenes directly showing him in action except for Randy viewing him from a distance during the raid on their server And while most of the book seems to operate under the idea that the rich dentist is the main threat to Epiphyte he suddenly tags out and a Chinese guy that we ve only seen as a slave during WWII is revealed as the hidden hand behind it all very late in the book yet we have no present day scenes with him hide spoiler The Roving Party those people have names like Churchill and RooseveltTheir mission is Red Esperanto to keep Jacks Back Indiscreet #2 the Nazis ignorant

review Cryptonomicon Cryptonomicon Free read Å 4 A gripping and page turning thriller that explores themes of power information secrecy and war in the twentieth century From the author of the three volume historical epic 'The Baroue Cycle' and SevenevesIn his legendary sprawling masterpiece Neal Stephenson hacks into the secret histories of nations and the private obsessions of men decrypting with dazzling virtuosity the forces that shaped this centuryIn 1942 Lawrence Pritchard Waterhouse a mathematical genius and young Captain in the US Navy is assigned to Detachment 2702 an outfit so secret that only a handful of peop. Pretenses are shabby things that like papier mache houses must be energetically maintained or they will dissolve Neal Stephenson has written an overlong novel focusing on the significance of cryptography both in the world today and the time of World War II He links the two by using multiple family generations The predecessors inhabit the early cryptographical universe of Turing and others dealing with cracking German and Japanese cyphers The latter family representatives are trying to develop a secure cryptography that will support the creation of a global monetary system based on gold stashed in the Philippines near the end of the war Neal Stephenson from the LA TimesStephenson provides considerable payload here providing details of cryptography then and now and considerable analysis of gold as the basis for economic structures He also tells us much about how business is done when global actors are creating the information economies of the future There is no shortage of action here But it is at the expense of character development To the extent that the players have an inner life it is radically overshadowed by the external events in which they are involved The female characters are barely explored here hardly than window dressing to the experiences of the men with considerable emphasis on their looks This was unwelcome Still I enjoyed the book It is an engaging read and worth the trip for the information it conveys Review posted February 17 2017Published May 1999PS I received this book as a gift from a rocket scientist nephew in 1999 I wrote most of the above back then It was never posted anywhere until now EXTRA STUFFLinks to the author s personal Twitter Google Plus and FB pagesOther Stephenson books reviewed Reamde SevenEves

review Cryptonomicon Cryptonomicon Free read Å 4 Randy attempts tosecretly salvage a sunken Nazi submarine that holds the key to keeping the dream of a data haven afloatBut their scheme brings to light a massive conspiracy with its roots in Detachment 2702 and an unbreakable Nazi code called Arethusa There are two ways this could go towards unimaginable riches and a future of personal and digital liberty or towards a totalitarian nightmareProfound and prophetic hypnotic and hyperactive Cryptonomicon is a work of great art thought and creative daring the product of a ingenious imagination working with white hot intensit. I am FINIIIIIISHED I thought it didn t have an ending I thought Neal Stephenson kept sneaking to my house and inserting pages in the back while I was asleep I thought he would never be appeased until I begged him to stop with a deck of cards morse code and a wide variety of pleading looksThis is a massive boy book A MASSIVE boy book It s got overwhelmingly male characters and they do really boy things like coding and shooting things and drawing logarithmic graphs about the last time they masturbated I kept being surprised that I could open this book and it didn t immediately smell overpoweringly of old canvas and sweat And I say this in the most endearing way generally speaking the characters in this book have no idea none at all that I am not One Of Them so I got to romp about with the best of them messing about with submarines and mid nineties hacker politicsI should probably tell you at this point that two of my favourite things as a mid teenager were vintage pen and paper codebreaking and rambly adventure stories so I was in my element This book is very exclusive in many ways and I am sure that in any other context I would get the rabbit in headlights look of someone who knows they re about to be accused of being a fake geek and who doesn t know uiiite enough what they re talking about to put those wholly ridiculous accusations to rest but as it was for most of the time I was reading this it was me and my comfy chair and my knitting and the printed word of Neal Stephenson and I could slot myself into that narrow band of intended audience and roam around at my leisure This book is a boy book and while I was reading it I was a boy Which is a cack handed way of saying that I am a nerd and I don t get to talk about polyalphabetic ciphers you break with freuency analysis and a pad of graph paper very often and Cryptonomicon made me feel as much at home as I could possibly have wished for Which is niceIt s also a cack handed way of saying I feel in some way like I shouldn t have felt at home It was so chock full of Tech Men and Soldier Men and Men Who Do Things Despite Slash For Their Womenfolk that I genuinely felt like I was empathising on the wrong side of the divide at some points Like I was having to sneak in and pretend I had a metaphorical moustache Very odd Ladies of Goodreads is that a thing you understand Men of Goodreads when you read something very female led like say Jane Eyre or Rebecca or whatever it is you emancipated chaps read these days how do you feel I ve rarely felt that this strongly cough Gorky Park it was very odd At any rate I am interested by howhow strongly this manifests itself in other peopleBack to the book It s an info dump there is almost info dump than plot Some of it I knew already and that was comforting some of it really fired me up for playing with numbers a bit While I ve been reading this book I ve been occasionally meeting a friend who s teaching me the basics and then some of statistics and I get the same feeling from that of channeling my enthusiasm into something practical something that someone else is excited about as well I liked the info dumpIt starts off really slowly There is basically no plot for probably the first two fifths certainly the first third It is full of inside references and totally devoid of beginning middle or end If this bothers you don t read it It bothered me for a while that s why I put it down and came back a few months later Or that s one of the reasons The other reason is that it s NINE HUNDRED PAGES LONG AND NEAL STEPHENSON IS STILL TALKINGIn the end I put it aside often but always came back There are very few books I can say that about and of the others they were almost entirely written by Frenchmen This book is not like those books If you ask me it s worth having a go at and if you get 60 pages in and go cross eyed at the tiny font don t worry You won t have missed much and it s a nice place to come back to I might even read it again but it probably won t be for a while A long while
