Rydell is on his way back to near-future San Francisco. A stint as a security man in an all-night Los Angeles convenience store has convinced him his career is going nowhere, but his friend, Laney, phoning from Tokyo, says there's more interesting work for him in Northern California. And there is, although it will eventually involve his former girlfriend, a Taoist assassin, the secrets Laney has been hacking out of the depths of DatAmerica, the CEO of the PR firm that secretly runs the world, and the apocalyptic technological transformation of, well, everything.
William Gibson's new novel, set in the soon-to-be-fact world of Virtual Light and Idoru, completes a stunning, brilliantly imagined trilogy about the post-Net world.
great story, and they're fixed it.
you should read books 1&2 before you buy this.
What about the rest of the Bridge Trilogy?
Great book, I've listened to it multiple times since I've downloaded it....but why hasn't iTunes released an unabridged adiobook rendering of Virtual Light and Idoru to round-out the series? Seems kinda stupid to have just one audiobook and not the complete trilogy.
This reminds me of how the Neuromancer audiobook was only available in German for a while a few years back when it was first available.....thanks for dropping the ball AGAIN, iTunes.
The narration is excellent but chapters 20-35 seem to be missing. It just stopped in mid-sentence during Boomzilla and went right into chapter 36.
