Anybody read Anathem by Neal Stephenson? I’m gonna assume some yes sayers out there. Let’s get a roll call of folks who’ve read the novel because I wanna throw out a few questions about the book, but there’s gonna be some spoilers and I don’t want you to be mad at me…

I understand it is part of a trilogy?
Do you need to have read the other volumes?
It sounds interesting

The Baroque Cycle is the trilogy. Anathem is stand alone. It’s based off Stewart Brand’s idea of the Clock of the Long Now.
