Nichole - Dirty H if you're nasty rated it 11 years ago
I'm to presume that it is artsy to eschew complete sentences? Sure, whatever.I was expecting something a bit more fast paced. Although Cayce seemed to go a lot of different places, not much actually happened. It was atmospheric, but not enough to offset the slow pace.I liked the resolution of the pr...

The first third is great but then it loses energy with each passing page until by the end it feels like we are both relieved to be done.

This book is in third person Present tense and usually that would make it very hard to read. I did have a few moments of being thrown but for the most part it was beautiful. Its written like poetry. Every sentence and every paragraph sends images strait into your brain. And thats not even mentionin...

Set almost completely outside the States, the plot is very similar to Coun...

The ending was a total anticlimax, but the concept and characters were really interesting.

This was my introduction to William Gibson. I loved it. I enjoyed the settings, the detailed world building just a shade of a step aside our own reality. I liked how he played on the trends of our times and probably creating a few of his own. The plot is coherent and I enjoyed following the traces a...
