Publisher's Summary

Rydell is on his way back to near-future San Francisco. A stint as a security man in an all-night Los Angeles convenience store has convinced him his career is going nowhere, but his friend, Laney, phoning from Tokyo, says there's more interesting work for him in Northern California. And there is, although it will eventually involve his former girlfriend, a Taoist assassin, the secrets Laney has been hacking out of the depths of DatAmerica, the CEO of the PR firm that secretly runs the world, and the apocalyptic technological transformation of, well, everything.
William Gibson's new novel, set in the soon-to-be-fact world of Virtual Light and Idoru, completes a stunning, brilliantly imagined trilogy about the post-Net world.

Very different, kinda cool :)

Poetic thoughts and images, but not the bardic/literary kind ....more artistic somehow. This author DEFinitely has his own style. Very dense, very thick weavings. Great characters. Very very interesting. The story is not your normal, straightforward sort and also not "typical" sci/fi. Know this first. BIGtime. It took me a couple (afterwards) to GET IT and then I did. Soo cool. Not your normal read. I did a LOT of re-winding (so to speak) throughout. But, I DEFinitely enjoyed the ride :)

Worth several listenings.

Very densely and artfully written. I listened to it multiple times, sometimes as a cure for insomnia. I would not recommend it for commutes as it is too low-key for that. I loved the conception of living on Golden Gate Bridge, but never would have hung in there, due to nebulous plotting, if it had not been for the relaxing and yet entertaining reading of Jonathan Davis. His reading of Rydell was particularly amusing.
