Try Crytonomicon by Neal Stephenson. I read it 5-6 years ago and just started to reread it.
I loved Cryptonomicon, but Stephenson's later book(s), the Baroque Cycle Quicksilver, Something I Can't Remember, and The System of the World are better. These are about the development of science and economics in the seventeenth century. That sounds dry, but it's fascinating and funny, splendidly done. Stephenson is brilliant.

I quickly looked at NS’s website and I had heard of Snow Crash also. Sounds like a very interesting writer. Thank you !
