Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson Long, yes, but still very engrossing. Slow-moving, but not in a bad way; rather the pace was a bit like peeling a onion--layer by layer, you uncovered more of the story and understood the characters. Similar, in my mind to Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. While some of the math was (ashamedly) over my head, and there were a few non sequitur (or seemed off topic) instances in the writing, none of it reduced my interest in the story.
