    ePUB gigonog.me Î Cryptonomicon Kindle ¼ cryptonomicon epub, Cryptonomicon PDFEPUBOne of the problems when reviewing Cryptonomicon is that you could easily end up writing a short novel just trying to summarize it Here’s my attempt to boil the story down to its essenceDuring World War II Lawrence Waterhouse is a genius mathematician who is part of the effort to break Japanese and German codes and his job is to keep them from realizing how successful the Allies have been by faking events that give the enemies reasons other than compromised code
