Colin sends Barry Rydell (last seen in Gibson's novel Virtual Light) to the bridge to find a mysterious killer who reveals himself only by his lack of presence on the Net. Barry is also entrusted with a strange package that seems to be the home of Rei Toi, the computer-generated "idol singer" who once tried to "marry" a human rock star (she's also from Idoru). Barry and Rei Toi are eventually joined by Barry's old girlfriend Chevette (from Virtual Light) and a young boy named Silencio who has an unnatural fascination with watches. Together this motley assortment of characters holds the key to stopping billionaire Cody Harwood from doing whatever it is that will make sure he still holds the reigns of power after the nodal point takes place.
Although All Tomorrow's Parties includes characters from two of Gibson's earlier novels, it's not a direct sequel to either. It's a stand-alone book that is possibly Gibson's best solo work since Neuromancer. In the past, Gibson has let his brilliant prose overwhelm what were often lackluster (or nonexistent) story lines, but this book has it all: a good story, electric writing, and a group of likable and believable characters who are out to save the world ... kind of. The ending is not quite as supercharged as the rest of the novel and so comes off a bit flat, but overall this is definitely a winner. --Craig E.

I'd forgotten how much I love Gibson's writing.
Quick paced, disjointed, and yet it's energizing, even thought the tale takes place in a very broken world. Read more
This is one of my favorite sciifi books, although it is mostly here now. I always feel like making a tanto after reading this bookPublished 9 months ago by Skate_VA
Overall, this is one of Gibson's best. A memorable cast, good pacing, good action, and--maybe I've just gotten used to Gibson's writing, but I swear, this book is one of his most... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Rachel
I'm rereading Gibson's three trilogies for the umpteenth time. For me the Bridge Trilogy is the most enjoyable read. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Barry Melius
