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.

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.

Best production, great listening experience

Thank you for the great narration, Jonathan Davis. I can't image how you accomplished such a great listen; is very enjoyable.
I ended up enjoying this book the most of the trilogy. I've read "All Tomorrow's Parties" a couple of times, but listening to this version is much better.
William Gibson has a great talent for describing the past, present and future (all at the same time) with a great tongue in cheek style.
