The Mongoliad: Book One (Foreworld, #1)

  • Au­thor: Neal Stephen­son
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    This, al­though writ­ten in col­lab­o­ra­­tion by half a dozen au­thors, feels like a Neal Stephen­­son book, and I will treat it as such. That means im­­pos­si­bly high stan­­dard­­s, and it does not sur­­pass all its test­s, but is pret­­ty close in many.

    In­­­cred­i­bly de­­tailed, and *un­der­­s­tand­able* fight sce­­nes? Check.

    Ran­­dom words that send you to the dic­­tio­­nary? Check. (Why use ver­st?)

    A page turn­er? Check.

    In­­ter­est­ing, mys­te­ri­ous char­ac­ter­s? Check. (I was half ex­pec­t­ing Enoch Root to show up: he does not)

    I loved it and can't wait for book too.
