Neil Stephenson has matured as a writer, and it didn't take much effort to realize that this book predates Snow Crash, but is obviously better than The Big U, at least according to the impression I get of his first book. Still, as a Stephenson aficionado I feel obligated to read all his works, starting from the earliest, so The Big U it is. (It's a good thing I’m not an Isaac Asimov aficionado.)
Next book I read, I'm going to keep a stack of Post-It-Notes handy so that I can tag and later list out all the typos I find. Because Zodiac sure was full of them. The writing style decayed a bit towards the last several chapters. I have no complaints about the story, though, as implausible as it may seem, which would have (and still would) make a great movie.
