I just had a look at one of Neal Stephenson's other books: Cryptonomicon. What I see so far looks wonderful. Way better than the crappy drivel of 50 shades of grack.

I am in a book club where everyone but me is either an English teacher or a librarian. It is my turn to recommend a novel for us to read. A year ago I chose "The Housekeeper and the Professor" (by Yoko Ogawa) which had just enough math in it to keep everyone interested. I'd love to come up with a book that has a little math in it again this year, but I'm coming up empty handed.
