Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Having lived in a monastery since childhood away from the violent upheavals of the outside world, Raz becomes one of a group of formerly cloistered scholars who are appointed by a fear-driven higher power to avert an impending catastrophe. By the author of Cryptonomicon. Simultaneous.


Review:

"Stephenson's novels have always contained more than one level, and ANATHEM continues that practice, its surface story serving as a launching pad for multiple meanings, both metaphorical and allegorical. The novel is beautifully written.... A magnificent achievement." (Starred review)

David Pitt, Booklist Upfront, 07/01/2008

Review:

"One of Mr. Stephenson's best skills--as he has showed in QUICKSILVER, CRYPTONOMICOM and other novels--is his ability to present a puzzle, piece by piece, in such a way that the reader can gradually arrive at a solution along with the book's narrator. He is science fiction's Agatha Christie, placing a shocking revelation in full view but revealing it one small clue at a time."

Paul Boutin, Wall Street Journal, 09/09/2008
