Books VII

I have been a huge fan of William Gibson since the release of his first novel, Neuromancer, in 1984. Was a perfect read for someone moving to the Peruvian Amazon. I have since read everything that he has written. I have repeatedly enjoyed the Sprawl Trilogy, the Bridge Trilogy, his most recent novels set in a contemporary world, i.e. the Blue Ant Trilogy, his short stories and his recent collection of essays. I have recently (yesterday) finished re-reading Pattern Recognition, which The Economist called “probably the best exploration yet of the function and power of product branding and advertising in the age of globalization.” Really a great book, and, for those who don't already know him, a good introduction to this prolific and creative author.

[NOTE: This is a new post. Can't believe I haven't ever written anything about William Gibson. I so enjoy the texture of the fictional worlds created by this man].
