Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hollis Henry is broke.
Milgrim is owned.
Garreth can’t be bought.
 
And they all have something that global marketing magnate Hubertus Bigend needs/wants, as he finds himself outmaneuvered and adrift, after a Department of Defense contract for combat-wear turns out to be the gateway drug for arms dealers so shadowy they can out-Bigend Bigend himself.

Synopsis:

Though best known for his fiction, William Gibson is as much in demand for his cutting-edge observations on the world we live in now. Originally printed in publications as varied as Wired, the New York Times, and the Observer, these articles and essays cover thirty years of thoughtful, observant life, and are reported in the wry, humane voice that lovers of Gibson have come to crave.

Synopsis:

The accolades and acclaim are endless for William Gibson's coast-to-coast bestseller. Set in the post-9/11 present, Pattern Recognition is the story of one woman's never-ending search for the now.

I always enjoy how Gibson builds around and deconstructs a concept, while using an intriguing story to pull all of the elements together. Pattern Recognition focuses on the essence and propagation of style in popular culture. In the age of the viral video, Pattern Recognition is an exciting and fitting read.
