Cryptonomicon is the best book I've ever read about undersea data cables.
I liked it because I enjoy historical fiction and the history of encryption.

I enjoyed it as well. I just don't assume that my interests, especially those, are going to match up with many other people.

I'm not familiar with this series, but John Scalzi's Lock In (part 1 of 2) is on sale today for $2.99:
A blazingly inventive near-future thriller from the best-selling, Hugo Award-winning John Scalzi.

Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

A quarter of a century later, in a world shaped by what's now known as "Haden's syndrome," rookie FBI agent Chris Shane is paired with veteran agent Leslie Vann. The two of them are assigned what appears to be a Haden-related murder at the Watergate Hotel, with a suspect who is an "integrator" - someone who can let the locked in borrow their bodies for a time. If the Integrator was carrying a Haden client, then naming the suspect for the murder becomes that much more complicated.

But "complicated" doesn't begin to describe it. As Shane and Vann began to unravel the threads of the murder, it becomes clear that the real mystery - and the real crime - is bigger than anyone could have imagined. The world of the locked in is changing, and with the change comes opportunities that the ambitious will seize at any cost. The investigation that began as a murder case takes Shane and Vann from the halls of corporate power to the virtual spaces of the locked in, and to the very heart of an emerging, surprising new human culture. It's nothing you could have expected.

Tor.com’s eBook of the Month Club
For his crimes, Mycroft Canner is required to wander the world being as useful as he can to all he meets.

Carlyle Foster is a sensayer—a spiritual counselor in a world that has outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished away.

The 25th century world into which Mycroft and Carlyle have been born is as strange to our 21st-century eyes as ours would be to a native of the 1500s. It is a hard-won utopia built on technologically-generated abundance, and also on complex and mandatory systems of labelling all public writing and speech. What seem to us normal gender distinctions are now distinctly taboo in most social situations.

To us it seems like a mad combination of heaven and hell. To them, it seems like normal life.

Someone must have mentioned it somewhere in another thread because it's been sitting in my wishlist for a few years. I was surprised that out of nowhere it was on sale, so I shared. Not sure who made the original recommendation, but you're the real MVP.

It's really grimdark though. Gratuitously violent. It wasn't bad, just tough in some parts. I think I like my grim a bit less dark. More Abercrombie and less Goodkind.

It wasn't a compliment about him at all. I was using him as an example at the extreme range of gratuitous violence.

$2.99
After their parents divorced in the 1970s, Andre Dubus III and his three siblings grew up with their overworked mother in a depressed Massachusetts mill town saturated with drugs and everyday violence. Nearby, his father, an eminent author, taught on a college campus and took the kids out on Sundays. The clash between town and gown, between the hard drinking, drugging, and fighting of "townies" and the ambitions of students debating books and ideas, couldn’t have been more stark. In this unforgettable memoir, acclaimed novelist Dubus shows us how he escaped the cycle of violence and found empathy in channeling the stories of others—bridging, in the process, the rift between his father and himself.
Recommended if you like memoirs.

I've liked all of Robert McCammon's books that I have read. I was going to buy this but was informed that I bought it in 2015.

It's as bad as Steam I tell you!


A couple of his other books are on sale for $2.99 also.
