Tower. Fans of Neal Stephenson who have become accustomed to feasting for many days over his epic novels will be as surprised as I was with the snack size novella titled, Atmosphæra Incognita. Packed into this little book is a plot about the building of a giant tower and the technical obstacles overcome to reach significant heights. I recall Frank Lloyd Wright designed a mile-high skyscraper that was never built. Stephenson’s imagination exceeds such a modest effort. Stephenson’s architecture of this story includes great precision and longtime readers will see a master at work on these pages.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
