really liked it
Read in July, 2011

I liked this better than the first two books of the Sprawl Trilogy, mostly because it feels like Gibson finally figured out what jacking into the matrix was actually like. His descriptions are clearer, and he does a much better job explaining what's going on, who people are, and what everything adds up to. I feel that I should just go back to Neuromancer and Count Zero and read them right away. Alas, I don't have time for that right now. He has moments of brilliance in his descriptive language, and lots of not so great quasi-noir dialogue. He should re-read his Chandler.
