Pattern Recognition | [William Gibson]

Pattern Recognition

Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her apartment is burgled and her computer hacked, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    "great audiobook"
    Where does Pattern Recognition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am an obsessive WG's reader, and these audiobooks have given me the opportunity to make a totally new experience. having read each of WG's books many times, the audiobook has been a welcome way to renew the experience.
    All of the WG's audiobooks that I have found on Audible are top quality, great recording, great voices, great readers and all unabridged.
    Can only recommend all of them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    absolutely yes! and actually I have already listened to it twice!

    Story
    "Awesome, awesome, awesome."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pattern Recognition to be better than the print version?

    This was a very good rendering with very few faults. Very good. Enjoyed it as much as when I read it


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Case Pollard of course, but all the characters came across well


    Have you listened to any of Shelly Frasier’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard Shelly Frasier before but will certainly listen to her again


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Patterns in information, information in patterns


    Any additional comments?

    American readers should check their English pronunciation... Mainwaring is pronounced 'Mannering' for example. Very picky, but there were no other faults

    "What a journey"

    A classic Gibson!
    Great characters in a not so distant dystopia.

    Did not know where this would lead at all and loved every second.

    Great narration too:)

    "Ok. Nothing special"

    It was read well, but the story was written in a way that the action wasn't dramatic and the story line a little convoluted.

    "Awful reader"

    I'm not sure I understand what the story was about, but it kept me engaged. The reader however was lazy and careless. It was evident this was her first reading of the text and she didn't seem to worry too much about punctuation or pronunciation. It spoiled the book for me.

    "Needs more research both in performance and story"

    I only finished this because I was a very long car journey. The initial character development creates someone who it is very easy to dislike but by the end you want to be rooting for... I was not. Despite the main character's precise nature there were a number of errors throughout that immediately made me fall out of the story. I can't help but think that with more research this could have been a half decent listen. The story itself didn't grip me which when the main focus of the story (when it gets there) is a mystery is disappointing.
    The performance of the main character was very good and while one of the English accents was surprisingly good for an American the rest were not good... Dick Van Dyke not good. With so many English characters it would have made so much sense to have someone British perform the other characters... or at least someone who would pronounce Bournemouth correctly.
