    1. Neal Stephenson is the author of Reamde, Anathem, and the three volume historical epic the Baroque Cycle Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System of the World , as well as Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, and Zodiac He lives in Seattle, Washington.

    2. This is book 6 of 8 in the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson. I'm slowly working my way through the series while reading some other material to keep up with my book groups. Since this is part of an eight book series, writing a review for each book is a little like writing a review following long chapters of a long book. This book picks up from the very beginning of Quicksilver, book one of the series, with Daniel Waterhouse returning to Europe from Massachusetts in 1713 at the request of Caroline [...]

    3. I've been listening to Simon Prebble for nearly 87 hours and his performance is Baroque Cycle has been fantastic. I'm really glad that Audible got a top notch narrator and maybe that's why I'm enjoying this series so much. In the sixth installment, "Solomon’s Gold" is something that I was looking forward to because it explained more about the monetary system, but the story fell short for my liking. Remind you, I just finished and wrote the review for "The Confusion" just a few days ago and may [...]

    4. The series are still brilliant, this is where we reconnect with Daniel Waterhouse on his return to England which is where the story started 5 books ago.This is the prelude to the finale, this is where the threads of the story begins to come together and as such this instalment in the series feels slightly as a buildup without its own narrative.

    5. Finished much sooner than I anticipated, but curiously, it didn't capture my attention in the same way as the former ones. Nevertheless, it was a great listen, maybe I am just slightly jaded after reading six volumes in the span of six months.

    6. Each book in this series just gets better and better. That is saying something since I gave the first book four stars and the middle one five stars. Others have summarized the plot and sidewindings of the book better than I could, so I will limit this review to two things. 1) The narrator of the audio book, Simon Prebble, is the perfect match for the material, and I highly suspect listening is the BEST way to experience the Baroque Cycle. 2) Neal Stephenson’s writing is simply par excellence. [...]

    7. *1st reading*I have mixed feelings about this entry in the series. I enjoyed the first half of the book with Daniel Waterhouse as a sarcastic detective working for Newton, but I felt the dramatic shift in tone from picaresquish in previous novels to serious action in the last half of the book was incredibly jarring. Something about the heist story where you, the reader have no idea what's going on because you don't inhabit the head of the guy who planned it (that is the sections describing (view [...]

    8. Being some time since I read the first two books in the series. Well written for sci fi and very good dialogue. Good character development. However this is not so much sci fi but historical fiction with a heavy science bent with the key characters of Newton and Leibnitz. However much I liked it, it is definitely not something I would recommend to a friend unless they really love stephenson and has already read all his other (and much cooler) novels.

    9. While perhaps lacking the same level of swashbuckling adventure enjoyed in the previous installment, Solomon's Gold more than makes up for any decreased action by focusing on socio-economic intrigue of the era, as well as by providing key climatic moments to kickstart the final volume of Neal Stephenson's epic series.

    10. Kind of like all these books. Its okay but is not always clear where it is going. The story is entertaining and the characters interesting and amusing. But I just did not get the full story. I know that the author is doing sort of a historical fiction series and such, but I would prefer a less roundabout process.

    11. The EPIC journey continues. Nice to see the story threads coming together, though I will admit to some fatigue. I am now ~80 hours of audiobook into this series, and I still have 26 hours to go Really love the world, the characters, the mechanics, the storytelling. It is just LONG.

    12. I found this book of the Baroque Cycle to be the most enjoyable so far. It feels like the story is finally coming all together. Bonus points for working "I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition." into the dialogue.

    13. I love Stephenson's style. However, this book just didn't get going for me. This whole series is too crass and tedious for my tastes. I will probably finish the last two books (listening). Like I said, I love his prose.

    14. Somewhat loosing steam and getting lost in showing of the author's detailed understanding of the alleys of London and The Tower nano 1714; but still a merry romp.

    15. I just love this series. Not a single volume has slowed or lagged - each one seems more entertaining than the last.

    16. Though the series is long, it's still a pleasure to read. I'm nearing the end and I can't wait to see what happens.

    17. "Technology is a sort of religious practice to me, a way of getting at the eternal by way of the mundane."

    18. Not as engaging as The Confusion (previous title in the series). What can one expect, it doesn't have pirates

    19. Picks up more than a decade later as Daniel Waterhouse returns from America to a rapidly modernizing England.
