I can't believe I read this one in the bathtub. There should probably be a law against that. Any book that talks about rampant killer industrial pollution corrupting the water should probably be read as far from any kind of water as you can manage it.

Especially if you're sick and sunburned (I was) and the symptoms for exposure to the toxins approach what you're feeling pretty closely.

Other than that, I thoroughly loved this book. I'd never read an "eco-thriller" before, but I was definitely impressed by this one. It's like James Bond had a kid with Macguyver and that kid became a professional eco-terrorist, hunted by the government and everything. At the very least, it's definitely worth a read for the action. At the most, you'll love Stephenson's solid style, powerful story and fair approach to environmental issues. Five out of five stars.
