Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Robertson Dean's deep, soothing tones anchor this post-9/11 thriller, a follow-up to Pattern Recognition. Told from three third-person perspectives, the story concerns a journalist backed by a mysterious Belgian industrialist, a young Cuban-Chinese go-to guy from a secretive clan of criminals, and a junkie fluent in Russian, who get caught up in a search for a mysterious shipping container. Gibson reinvents the concept he made famous in his landmark SF novel, Neuromancer—i.e., cyberspace—creating a more nuanced and up-to-date relationship between the virtual and the real. For Gibson, the nature of the quest object is almost beside the point; it merely serves as a spark for a series of cleverly orchestrated confrontations and interesting meditations about the world and where it's headed. In a novel that's light on dialogue and heavy on narration and interior monologue, Dean doesn't need to create distinct, accented voices. He provides reflective calm for Gibson's musings, and clarity to detailed, complex action scenes. Although there are a few strange mispronunciations, this is, on the whole, a smooth, intelligent recording of an intriguing and gripping book.

From AudioFile

SPOOK COUNTRY is a complex, demanding novel. Narrator Robertson Dean has a solid delivery for this challenging story about spies, a mysterious inventor, and a new form of art that uses light as sculpture that can be seen only through a special visor. Deans command of numerous accents makes his performance, and the novel itself, believable. Fans of Gibsons previous work, PATTERN RECOGNITION, will find his latest appealing. Newcomers may be put off by the apparent disconnectedness in the beginning of the book. But stick with it--in the end everything makes sense, and all the disparate pieces come together. Be warned, this is not a novel to half-listen to while distracted. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
