Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on January 1, 2020
This is my second attempt to enjoy Gibson and it will be my last. Not my cup of tea for several reasons:

- Much of the dialog reads more like stream-of-consciousness babble than things people would actually say.

- Future jargon and tech thrown in with zero explanation, requiring the reader to eventually figure out what it means through repetitive context. Maybe this will take pages, maybe chapters. Some authors make this approach work; Peter F. Hamilton comes to mind. Gibson does not.

- Disjointed. The voodoo element never meshed or fit for me.

All in all, this writing comes across to me as trying to be too clever by half. I strongly prefer that an author simply tell a good story in understandable fashion. This isn't that.
