William Gibson – Pattern Recognition September 26, 2007Posted by taryn in cyber punk.
An interesting read, but not one of my favourites. The first few chapters in particular are very tough going, however, it does get better! Hold in there. Gibson writes his heroine all messed up by jet lag, feeling like her soul is twisted and left behind in the atlantic.
Cayce Pollard is a cool hunter, she has a physical aversion to brands and works for corporates vetting their design, logo development and hunt for the latest style. But, her passion is for the ‘footage’ a series of mysterious and enchanting film stills released all over the net.
Ultimately, this is a mystery, sending Cayce to London, Moscow and Tokyo in search of the elusive footage. Inspiring descriptions of cities kept me reading, but the story petered out at the end.
