This is the worst book written by a professional author that I've ever read. Bar none.

1 star

I want it on record that I'd give this book zero stars but that doesn't count as a rating. So, 1-star without that possibility. I hated this book so much I fully intend to go next to the Gibson subreddit and trash it there, too. It's not that it was bad, it was so bad, it angered me at the halfway point. With only 50 pages left, I wondered if I should even bother finishing it. DO NOT read this book. It's just drek. I don't care about how he had to change it or fix to accommodate modern goings-on. It's trash. Should be thrown out and excluded from the Gibson ouvre. Ugh.

Fast, fun, and grimy

Review of 'Agency' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Usually longer than necessary stories have me screaming “get an editor”, but what Gibson does so well here, despite the blinding pace and flip flopping perspectives, is populate the pages with a whole series of characters that you’re more than happy to spend time with. Which might be the point, if you consider the personality of most of the “AI”s we deal with in this stub.
