Johnny Mnemonic, Neuromancer, Count Zero, Burning Chrome. All phenomenal stories. Some of my favorite reads.
The Difference Engine & Pattern Recognition: I never finished them. They just didn’t resonate with me.
But I still will buy anything William Gibson writes and give it a go. I just finished his latest novel, Spook Country and here are my thoughts…
In the end, it’s a great premise. I won’t spoil it for you but the premise is actually pretty funny. I appreciated the subtle humor and the fact that it was exposed to me until almost the very end.
But, overall I felt the book started too slowly, developed too randomly, and then ended to quickly.
Spook Country gets 3 stars from me. A good, worthwhile read, but nowhere near the caliber of, say Neuromancer.
