I’ve just finished reading this book. My advice if you’ve not read Pattern Recognition and Spook Country – go and read them. Really. Because then you’ll be gagging to read this book to complete the Bigend trilogy.
I’ve been a fan of William Gibson since reading the Neuromancer trilogy, and I enjoyed every single book since. There was a often a single line of continuity. But the single line in this trilogy… brought it full circle. Starting in 2002, then meeting again in 2006/7, this concludes shortly after the financial crash in around 2008/9.
I’m not going to spoil the plot – the Bigend series had a fantastic finish with a twist even I did not expect, you need to read this series.
