The System of the World: Volume Three of The Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson
The System of the World is the final book of the The Baroque Cycle trilogy (Volume 1: Quicksilver, Volume 2: The Confusion). In 1714, Daniel Waterhouse returns to London and becomes embroiled in the conflict between Isaac Newton, who is Master of the Mint, and Jack Shaftoe, King of the Vagabonds and master counterfeiter. Jack's goal is the collapse of the British monetary system, and he needs to succeed to save the love of his life, Eliza, Duchess of Arcachon-Qwghlm. Waterhouse, meanwhile, also tries to finish work on his machine that could change the future forever. Neal Stephenson again weaves history, philosophy, math, and finance into his complicated storyline which comes to an end with this novel. The System of the World has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "At nearly 3,000 pages, Stephenson's exceptional trilogy is an achievement on an epic scale that will delight science fiction readers for years to come."
