Almost everything we've come to expect from Gibson.,

This review is from: All Tomorrow's Parties (Paperback)
This novel wraps up the strand taken from Virtual Light through Idoru. As with the "Neuromancer trilogy" the sequel could not live up to the first book, but the third makes up for it with an absorbing, complex narrative solidly backed by Gibson's own brand of description. To some extent it was lacking a little action compared to his previous stuff, but the characters are there, made all the more believable by their partial or extensive ignorance, their lives unblessed by dollars, and the cheap production-line technology that doesn't always work; I laughed all the way through at Rydell's Brazilian shades that were a struggle every time he used them. Great stuff.
