The Confusion by Neal Stephenson

The Confusion is a part of the Baroque Cycle, three long books centered around the late 1600’s. They highlight some of the changes occurring around that time, like the development of money and science. While I enjoyed this book, it took effort. Had I not been so intent on finding out more about Enoch Root from Cryptonomicon, I wouldn’t have made it through any of the Baroque Cycle novels. I did like this novel better than Quicksilver.
