Spook Country

Not particularly one of my favorite Gibson novels, but still readable and interesting if only for its commentary on current events. The plot moves along like a Dan Brown novel, with short chapters which alternate between characters who inevitably come together near the end. Unfortunately, you realize that this is going to happen and it makes the story somewhat predictable. I still found it good enough to read through fairly quickly, and I wouldn’t dissuade anyone who was planning on reading it. But at the same time, I don’t think I could recommend it to anyone who hadn’t been planning on reading it already.

Next up is The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta.
