"Pattern Recognition is William Gibson's best book since he rewrote all the rules in Neuromancer."--Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods "One of the first authentic and vital novels of the 21st century."--The Washington Post Book World 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... Cayce Pollard is a new kind of prophet--a world-renowned "coolhunter" who predicts the hottest trends. While in London to evaluate the redesign of a famous corporate logo, she's offered a different assignment: find the creator of the obscure, enigmatic video clips being uploaded to the internet--footage that is generating massive underground buzz worldwide.   Still haunted by the memory of her missing father--a Cold War security guru who disappeared in downtown Manhattan on the morning of September 11, 2001--Cayce is soon traveling through parallel universes of marketing, globalization, and terror, heading always for the still point where the three converge. From London to Tokyo to Moscow, she follows the implications of a secret as disturbing--and compelling--as the twenty-first century promises to be...… (més)

Nice language, good flow, but the world Gibson creates is not as deep and the plot much simpler than usual. The main character holds her own but the world she moves through is much simpler than a usual Gibson text. ( )

Grand fun. Felt like a John Carre novel, but then it felt like a foreshadowing of the whole QAnon thing. Plenty of twists and turns, but not too too contrived. OK, maybe the resolution was a bit too resolved. Still, wonderfully paced, excellent flavors of places and people. ( )

I have a real love/hate relationship with Gibson's prose. There are times when I want to shout, "For the love of Mike, use complete sentences!" Other times I just melt at some lyrical turn of phrase he will use.

This is a typical Gibson story: of-the-moment tech and culture blended together with quirky (but realistic) characters.

I'm on the fence about rating this 3 or 4 stars. I'm going to wait a while and see how much the story and characters hang with me, now that I'm no longer reading. If they stay strong (like they were real people who told me their story), then I'll upgrade the rating to a 4.

[UPDATE: I've hiked my rating to 4 stars, in large part due to the strength of the other two stories in this series: [book:Spook Country|22322] and [b:Zero History|7745031|Zero History (Blue Ant, #3)|William Gibson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1282769471s/7745031.jpg|10567916]] ( )

I wanted to like it more. The writing is really good. Gibson can string words together. The truth is the book moved really slow and I didn't really care about the plot. Normally I would have given up in this book (the start was really slow). Only his writing style kept me going. Ultimately, it left me a little cold. ( )

Set a few minutes in the future, this is the story about marketing, paranoia, stalking, and crime. For me, a lot better than Neuromancer ( )

"In this, he is basically a conservative author; he doesn't really want to engage with the possibilities of the post-human. His chosen form, the novel, doesn't allow him to do this."
afegit per bookfitz | editaThe Guardian, Toby Litt (Apr 26, 2003)
 
"Gibson's best book since Mona Lisa Overdrive should satisfy his hardcore fans while winning plenty of new ones."
afegit per bookfitz | editaPublishers Weekly (Jan 20, 2003)
 
''Pattern Recognition'' considers these issues with appealing care and, given that this best-selling author is his own kind of franchise, surprising modesty.
 
"A slick but surprisingly humane piece of work from the father of cyberpunk."
afegit per bookfitz | editaKirkus Reviews (Nov 15, 2002)
