Best Gibson in ages! And I've liked all the others. Narrator was an excellent match.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a return to the high-future scifi of William Gibson's earlier books after the Bigend trilogy, but is still grounded in an unsettling sense of the present. It may not be the first of his books I'd recommend, but it is great nonetheless.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Peripheral?
The conclusion, without wanting to give anything away, is at once both rewarding and has a strange sense of continuity about it. The whole world of the book has stuck with me for days after finishing it.

This has shades of Neuromancer, Source Code and a hint of Nick Bostrum... and thoroughly William Gibson. A proper romp with 'time travel' that could almost make sense. I get the feeling I might be living in a weird quantum entangled stub. Loved it.

I couldn't finish this book as it was impossible to follow the plot due to the ridiculous tech jargon. Additionally, the story jumped around between different times and characters as well as individual characters having several different names which again made it impossible to comprehend. The premise is interesting but very poorly executed for the general readership.
