Can't-Wait Wednesday - The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine


Release Date: June 13th, 2017
Publisher:  William Morrow & Company
Author: Neal Stephenson & Nicole Galland
Genre: Science Fiction
Pages: 768


And so the Department of Diachronic Operations—D.O.D.O. —gets cracking on its real mission: to develop a device that can bring magic back, and send Diachronic Operatives back in time to keep it alive . . . and meddle with a little history at the same time. But while Tristan and his expanding operation master the science and build the technology, they overlook the mercurial—and treacherous—nature of the human heart..





Why I'm Waiting: Because I love Neal Stephenson and it sounds pretty rad!

    1. Doesn't it?! It's going to be a monster of a book though, Neal Stephenson doesn't write small books!

  3. I found this and loved how quirky it is -- is this how he usually writes??
