Opinion

From Library Staff

Cool! Can I nominate a William Gibson novel? Spook Country is the most obvious since it’s set in Vancouver.

It was a good little book, it was well written just like most all his books....

Starts well. Showcases typical Gibson vision for potential future technologies with the virtual, holographic art visible only while wearing special viewing gear. (enhanced reality is coming soon for real)
However, the book drags in the middle and has a pat ending.
Not his best.

As always, Gibson weaves together multiple narrative threads as the tale progresses until everything comes together in the last few pages. In this book Gibson examines the secret world beneath the surface of our own lives. At the end of it all, I was left disappointed -- most of Gibson's previous works provoked more self-introspection than this one.

Smart and fun near-future SF -- good read, classic Gibson.
