really liked it

I wasn't sure I'd like this one. I had originally wanted to pick up a copy of Gibson's The Difference Engine, but the public library here didn't have it, and instead I elected to try All Tomorrow's Parties. Glad I did in hindsight. Pretty decent read. Gibson does a good job forging an engaging narrative of a future wrought with communities of disenfranchised, impoverished people living outside of societal norms in situations equivalent to Brazilian favelas, a modularization of the rest of society at large, and a saturation of information via cyberspace that a few people see as a harbinger to the end of the world. Gibson takes these topics that have little to no commonality, and masterfully weaves a coherent tapestry of them.
