pattern recognition by william gibson is actually the first book i’ve read by him (having not read neuromancer yet). and once again i find myself reading a book where the protagonist works in marketing.

i thought cayce, the protagonist, was a very richly drawn and interesting character, but most of the other characters were a bit thin. the locations and experiences brought more to the story than the other characters did. the writing (the language) is just fantastic.

overall, it is a book that i would recommend, although i found it to ultimately be a little bit unsatisfying.
