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 man..Show More »y 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.
Less futuristic or dystopian than his pervious novels, this book is a form of contemporary thriller, but as Gibson himself says for any reader "who's ..Show More »about to get on a 12hr flight and buys a copy Zero History expecting Clancy, they're going to be very, very disappointed" Slightly biased possibly as I work in the field Gibson describes in this book, I'm struck how he maintains an uncanny knack throughout the Blue Ant series to so accurately caricature the authentic essence of the dysfunctional and sometimes sinisterly powerful creative industries in a loosely charming way and with classic Gibson-esque prose and style found in his previous books.Once your used to Robertson Dean's voice-it took some getting used to in the last book (Spook Country)- you realise h'e the best man for the job. Really enjoyable, beautifully written and a decent length.
