Well, that went fast...

So like I mentioned the other day, I decided to make another run at William Gibson's novel, The Peripheral, and I am so glad I did.

In classic Gibson style, the plot accelerates steadily toward a sort of event horizon, at which point the pace of events builds to the denouement with breakneck speed.

I was maybe thirty or forty pages in yesterday morning and just finished it here before lunch. Past page 200 or so, it went from "this is a pretty good yarn, actually" to "I don't want to put this down until we're done."

Good thing the second book in the series is already out...
