Idoru by William Gibson
Idoru

I really enjoyed this book; I thought it was extremely well crafted and it kept me on the edge the whole time. Gibson's writing style is a bit hard to get into at first, but it is well worth the time and effort. Once I got into it, I found it impossible to get out again. His whole concept of a rock star who wants to marry someone who does not exist anywhere but in a virtual reality is one of the most creative ideas I have ever heard. How do we deal with the increasing prevalence of technology in our everyday lives? Will we, too, come to believe in icons who have no basis whatsoever in reality? This book really questions our connection to technology and the ways in which it interacts with the real world.
