I think this is Gibson's best written book. Sure Neuromancer is cooler, but it took the intervening years for him to find his voice - which is powerful and unique. Some readers may not align with it - oh well.

This is a must-read for anybody who knows and loves the Bay Area or William Gibson, or who has a fondness for dystopian fiction.

The book seemed promising. I've checked the author's bio, and that seemed very promising. Then why do I feel that I read a dud? From the get go I felt lost in a no man's land. The people populating the book are very interesting but the action motivating them is brain dead. What's the deal with that bridge. What's the deal with the fire at the end. It all seem like a very bad dream. I cannot speak very well of this book. I would stay away. The book comes across as a useless exercise with no direction.
