Indulgence. I find that Summer is the perfect time to indulge in a doorstopper-sized novel. Just in time for a July vacation, I hefted a whopper of a novel by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland titled, The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.. For readers with the luxury of time to delve into a huge novel, this one contains real treasure. There’s magic, time travel, witches, and a great government agency, the Department of Diachronic Operations (D.O.D.O.), with a very interesting mission. I feasted through the multiple characters and narrators, the complexity of the science, and the warmth of the human relationships among interesting characters. My relaxing vacation was enhanced by reading this indulgent novel.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
