Brief Summary: William Gibson “Zero History”

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.

Fact or fiction…

Sometimes, I want to write a book.  The desire usually lasts about 3-4 days max and then I’ll forget it, get fed up if I’ve written something or feel like I’m ripping an idea off.

At other times, I wonder what it would be like to live in the footsteps of the central character.  To see the world from their point of view…

… and at other times, I feel like I’m living the life.  I remember I do so much… just a book is truncated.

As a by note, I’m enjoying my book.
