A breathless ride...the writing gives an immersive sense of time and place * Face * Stephenson mixes a library's worth of ideas with compulsive derring-do ... its scope and inventiveness become addictive. * Time Out * A great, heaving countryside of a book...consistently funny...fluent and elusive, while retaining just the right hint of poison * Telegraph * Staggering diversity and detail ... An astonishing achievement. * Sunday Telegraph * [A] massive tour-de-force- Dense, witty, erudite, packed with fascinating characters, and gripping despite a distended length, Quicksilver is both a worthy prequel to Cryptonomicon, and an indication that Stephenson's Baroque Cycle is shaping up to be a far more impressive literary endeavour than most so-called "serious" fiction - No scholarly, and intellectually provocative, historical novel has been this much fun since The Name of the Rose. -- Charles Shaar Murray * Independent *
