Gibson's near future story of brand maketing and intrigue, now in a convienient paperback edition.
From our Feb '03 Review : If you like Easter egg hunts, finding Waldo, playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, or any other ?find the hidden connection? games, you?ll like William Gibson?s seventh book of fiction. Pattern Recognition is the name of the book, probably because this is what the reader ends up doing ? seeing the connections between history, media, the news groups on the Internet, in the outer world. Reading is an act of unpacking meaning condensed into words and phrases, and readers of other Gibson books will enjoy finding the evocative echoes of earlier works. The hero's name, the blurring of the real and the virtual, ?the color of dried blood?, a prototypical albeit accidental implant that increases productivity.
