Mark Durst, October 22, 2014 (view all comments by Mark Durst)
This book is the first of a trilogy set "twenty minutes in the future". Gibson's ideas are prescient now just as they were in the 80s with Neuromancer and the books that followed. But these books are tinged with a post-9/11 creepiness that fully reflects the constricted political and social landscape we all move in today. As always, wonderful, thoughtful writing makes his points; his discussion of long-distance flight in the first few pages is typically insightful, and now colors all my travel experiences.

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.

My most memorable book of the decade -- and I rad a lot of books. It sums up the first decade of this century.

Stunning. Gibson has taken a new turn in the realm of fantasy with this novel. He creates a plausible story delving into the life of a marketing consultant in real-world situations and yet strips down reality to zeros and ones. One of his best works yet.

"Synopsis" by ,
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" by ,

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.
