The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.
- By: Neal Stephenson, Nicole Galland
- Narrated by: Laurence Bouvard, Shelley Atkinson, Laural Merlington, and others

You think you know how the world works? Think again. From best-selling author Neal Stephenson and critically acclaimed historical and contemporary novelist Nicole Galland comes a captivating and complex near-future thriller that questions the very foundations of the modern world. Magic has faded from the minds of mankind, until an encounter between Melisande Stokes, linguistics expert at Harvard, and Tristan Lyons, shadowy agent of government, leads to the uncovering of a distant past.
Slow slow slow. I just couldn't get into it.

An excellent and very interesting idea and a very creative way to deliver the story (as extracts from personal journals, email, corporate memo etc)... but my oh my is it boring because the story is drawn out over an excruciatingly long time, which is Neal S’s style I guess. If you listed to it at 1.5 speed it is easier to get through.
