Editorial Reviews


“A masterful performance.”—Chicago Tribune

“Gibson nails the texture of internet culture: how it feels to be close to someone you know only as a voice in a chat room, or to fret about someone spying on your browser’s list of sites visited.”—The New York Times

“Completely contemporary...his best book.”—San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

“[An] eerie vision of our time.”—The New Yorker
Pattern Recognition races along like an expert thriller, but it rides on a strong current of melancholy, of elegy for the broken and the vanished...Gibson knows he’s building on ground zero.”—GQ

“So good it defies all the usual superlatives.”—The Seattle Times
“It turns out that William Gibson knows as much about the present as he does about the future...a masterful performance from a major novelist who seems to be just now hitting his peak. Welcome to the present, Mr. Gibson.”—Chicago Tribune

“Gibson’s first novel to take place in the present takes you on a reckless journey of espionage and lies and doesn’t promise a safe return...wonderfully chilling...a dangerously hip book.”—USA Today
“[Gibson], who invented the future with Neuromancer, shows he’s just as skilled at seeing the present.”—Entertainment Weekly
“A serious thriller set in the dystopian present...glossy [and] well-paced.”—Time
