William Gibson remains in the unevenly-distributed present in Spook Country, a novel packed with his beautiful prose but not all that much else.
Granted, Gibson has never been a big one for plot, instead relying on the fertility of his ideas and the enveloping grace of his writing, but Spook Country hits his nadir.
Nevertheless, if you’re a fan (and you should be), Spook Country is worth reading, even though it is frustratingly subpar for Gibson.
