This piece isn't really science fiction, though it is certainly high-tech stuff. But most of it actually could happen today. And the present-tense narration is smart and witty and moves along at just the right pace for a high-tech noir piece.
Sure, this isn't a Dirk Pitt novel or anything - here you will find depth and character and mystery that isn't always solved. You will find corporate marketing as a potentially evil force and that not everything on this earth is as one-dimensional as Danielle Steele.
Gibson is at the top of his game and provides a story more readable than his genre-defining Neuromancer. Great read, great narration, A+!
This was a horrible book. It lacked imagination, and rambled on and on. I suffered through the whole book and the ending just made it seem so pointless. Character developement was flat and 2d, so I didn't even care if there was a point to their story.
I had a friend who also bought this book and found it to be the same, he didn't even listen to the whole thing. If we had only in advance that we were both looking at it, might have saved some money.
More of interest to someone that is into all things Internet. Lots of insider terms. Not sure what the purpose was, but was glad at the end no one was dead.
I tried 3 different times to weed this this book and it was impossible. I'm a pretty patient person but there was so much flowery prose that I simply couldn't get into the story line. I love word games in prose, but this made the story line unrecognizable. One of the worst I've gotten from Audible. Word of advice: Don't waste your time!
I read a lot of espionage - thriller type books and I really didn't ever get into this book. I had forgotten the subject matter as I was listening on my iPod, and had to go back to Audible to find out what it was really about, and I had listened to 1/2 hour of the book. Can't recommend.
I found this Book to be a waste of my time. There is no plot and the author reminds me of a person that speaks to hear himself talk. TOO WORDY
