The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O by Neal Stephenson & Nicole Galland

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O was a fantasic read that took up most of my Summer this year.

The way they fit magic into the real world and explain it in a midly scientific manner was very amusing.

The last Neal Sephenson book I read was Seveneves whcih was amazing and is still one of my favourite books so I went into this with high hopes and it did not disapoint.

The first part of the book is a study of how magic works and why it stopped working. I wont spoil it here but it all feels very plausible.

The middle of the book does get bogged down in a lot of bureaucracy in the middle that is entertaining but does get a little fustrating at times. I did like it being there as there is no way a time travel wing of the government would exist without tonnes of oversight and management.
