Remarkable authorship that deserves a follow-on
Reviewed in the United States on June 21, 2019
I've read a number of William Gibson's novels (the Sprawl trilogy, the Blue Ant trilogy and the Bridge trilogy) and I genuinely admire William Gibson's authoring skills. Gibson's trilogies are packed full of detailed content that convinces the reader they are living within his futuristic cultures. I further admire the scope of William Gibson's thinking, marveling where one person gets so many diverse ideas.
This novel concludes the Bridge trilogy: characters you already know fortunately come together, seeking to survive as parties seek to create cultural fundamental changes. And human culture changes globally at the novel's end, but the creation vanishes into the madding crowd as the novel ends. I interpret these events as a beginning, not a conclusion, and I'm surprised that William Gibson wrote no follow-on novel to 2003's All Tomorrow's Parties.
