I really have enjoyed Gibsons older stuff but with Pattern Recognition and even more with Spook Country the guy just meanders too much. I'm half way through and I find I don't really care about any of the characters, don't really understand the plot and am having a really tough time hanging in there. Gibson's writing continues to be unique and often engaging but it keeps leading nowhere in this story. Also the plain old modern setting isn't nearly as exciting as the bleak future stuff in my opinion. William, if you're reading this I'm sorry man... I just don't get it.
