Where does Spook Country rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I loved all WG's audiobooks on Audible.
What did you like best about this story?
I am an obsessive WG's reader, and these audiobooks have given me the opportunity to make a totally new experience. having read each of WG's books many times, the audiobook has been a welcome way to renew the experience.
All of the WG's audiobooks that I have found on Audible are top quality, great recording, great voices, great readers and all unabridged.
Can only recommend all of them.
What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?
Although all performers of WG's audiobooks are great performers and all give an astonishing performance, I must confess I am partial to Robertson Dean's performance.
His voice, in my perception, sounds extremely Gibsonian, so to say

I found the narration hard going, I've got others done by Robertson that I liked , and there's nothing 'wrong' with his performance but it just didn't engage me. probably not Gibson's finest work either.
good just not great.
Would you consider the audio edition of Spook Country to be better than the print version?
Yes, because of Robertson Dean.
Which character – as performed by Robertson Dean – was your favourite?
Any additional comments?
This is the second of the Blue Ant trilogy, and the follow up to Pattern Recognition. This novel features the character of Hubertus Bigend, but has a completely new lead character, Hollis Henry. But this actually works very well. And Gibson's prose and storytelling are faultless. Worth a listen.
Enjoyed this noirish Gibson story. Compelling story and good characters in a well written plot.
This is clearly a work of art, and is probably not for the casual reader.
In order to enjoy the book, the reader needs to understand the series and be willing to become immersed. I'm going to come back to this sometime and give it another try. Not easy listening in my opinion
