'Cryptonomicon' by Neal Stephenson

I am about a quarter of the way through (it's a huge book!), but it's basically a story set both in WWII and the present day. It is based on Cryptology, exploring the creation of believable bell curves of 'Randomness', after successfully utilising ENIGMA data in order to prevent the enemy from suspecting that their codes have actually been broken...


Stephenson is a brilliant writer whom people have either never heard of, or know intimately well...

His most famous book is 'Snowcrash', of the William Gibsonesque Cyberpunk genre.
