Pattern recognition – Gibson

Posted by jerry on August 10th, 2004 — Posted in Journal, Travel, Writing

I have just finished reading William Gibson’s book Pattern Recognition – this has to be one of his best books (yes Neuromancer was and remains stunning) – once again demonstrating how great writer Gibson is. i love his use of language, and the description of jet lag as having to wait for the soul to catch the body is an enduring image. His opening line:

“Five hours’ New York jet lag and Cayce Pollard wakes in Camden Town to the dire and ever-circling wolves of disrupted circadian rhythm.”

This is a must-read book!

must go
