+Dan Lentz, Snow Crash is very good, but already has Stephenson's wildly divagatory tendencies on full display (they're much stronger in Cryptonomicon, but I found them so interesting in that case that I hardly cared).

Zodiac (named after the inflatable boat, not the thing in the sky) is concentrated hilarity of the 'oh shit that could really happen' variety, and unlike everything else Stephenson has ever written is both tightly focused and has an ending. He clearly needs that editor back.

As for food poisoning -- like respiratory diseases, this is something I have much too extensive experience of, though not for a few years now. I'll be OK in a couple of days...
