Other than his bloated and meandering and badly-in-need-of-an-editor
Baroque Cycle books (or maybe he was using Stephen King's at the time),
I haven't read anything of his that wasn't good. From SNOW CRASH to
REAMDE to everything in-between. But he still needs an editor (not as
badly as at points in the past, but even REAMDE could have used some
more tightening) and CRYPTONOMICON remains his best, IMO.
