The accolades and acclaim are endless for William Gibson's coast-to-coast best seller. Set in the post-9/11 present, Pattern Recognition is the story of one woman's never-ending search for the now....
Cayce Pollard is a new kind of prophet - a world-renowned "coolhunter" who predicts the hottest trends. While in London to evaluate the redesign of a famous corporate logo, she's offered a different assignment: find the creator of the obscure, enigmatic video clips being uploaded to the Internet - footage that is generating massive underground buzz worldwide.
Still haunted by the memory of her missing father - a Cold War security guru who disappeared in downtown Manhattan on the morning of September 11, 2001 - Cayce is soon traveling through parallel universes of marketing, globalization, and terror, heading always for the still point where the three converge.

Enchanting Story and Characters

Would you listen to Pattern Recognition again? Why?

Yes, someday.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Interesting characters and story lines.

What about Shelly Frasier’s performance did you like?

She did great. I enjoyed the heroine of the story in her voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

I loved having the main character in my head in the voice of the reader. Very enjoyable perspective. The plot is very William Gibson, improbable but interesting. He still seems to foreshadow our current and near history too well.
