Reviews

"A puzzle palace of bewitching proportions and stubborn echoes."--Los Angeles Times

"Arguably the first example of the post-post-9/11 novel, whose characters are tired of being pushed around by forces larger than they are--bureaucracy, history and, always, technology--and are at long last ready to start pushing back."--The New York Times Book Review

"Like Pynchon and DeLillo, Gibson excels at pinpointing the hidden forces that shape our world."--Details

"[A] dazed, mournful quality...[An] evocation of post-9/11 displacement, the sense of a world in which nothing seems fixed or reassuring...one of our vital novelists."--Newsday

"Although wearing the trappings of a thriller, Spook Country is essentially a comedy, albeit a dry, dark, and disturbing one."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A fitful, fast-forward spy tale...It's to Gibson's credit that he weaves his strands of disparate narrators, protagonists and foils, and his panoply of far-forward technology, into a vivid, suspenseful and ultimately coherent tale."--USA Today

"Part thriller, part spy novel, part speculative fiction, Gibson's provocative work is like nothing you have ever read before."--Library Journal

"Set in the same high-tech present day as Pattern Recognition, Gibson's fine ninth novel offers startling insights into our paranoid and often fragmented postmodern world....Compelling characters and crisp action sequences, plus the author's trademark metaphoric language, help make this one of Gibson's best."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Gibson excels as usual in creating an off-kilter atmosphere of vague menace."--Kirkus Reviews
