Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. HTML:William Gibson returns with his first novel since 2010??s New York Times??bestselling Zero History.

Where Flynne and her brother, Burton, live, jobs outside the drug business are rare. Fortunately, Burton has his veteran??s benefits, for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the USMC??s elite Haptic Recon force. Then one night Burton has to go out, but there??s a job he??s supposed to do??a job Flynne didn??t know he had. Beta-testing part of a new game, he tells her.

The job seems to be simple: work a perimeter around the image of a tower building. Little buglike things turn up. He??s supposed to get in their way, edge them back. That??s all there is to it. He??s offering Flynne a good price to take over for him. What she sees, though, isn??t what Burton told her to expect. It might be

The Peripheral af William Gibson

    Walkaway af Cory Doctorow (melmore)
    melmore: Both works extrapolate from our current situation to imagine not-dissimilar futures. Both are concerned with questions of wealth distribution, resource depletion, human agency, equality, freedom. Both have super bad-ass female protagonists (who are nonetheless recognizable human beings).… (mere)

Quick Review: Not a fan. I was confused... maybe it's just not my kind of sci-fi. I had hoped the book would shed more light on the tv show, but it was an entirely different story. ( )
  CADesertReader | Mar 30, 2024 |
Typical William Gibson futuristic and dystopian science fiction, with a confusion of characters, plot and terminology, but nevertheless some intrigue and adventure. Fun to read, and afterwards instantly forgettable. ( )
  breathslow | Jan 27, 2024 |
It was fine but didn't really enthrall me. the characters weren't fleshed out and I didn't really empathize with them. Interesting set up, but not really well explained, often disorienting (I think on purpose, but that doesn't work well in audio book format which is how I experienced it). ( )
  stardustwisdom | Dec 31, 2023 |
Lots of interesting sci-fi ideas, some interesting characters and places, but... it's like an entire plot premised on deus ex machina. And WTF was that Harry Potter ending? Oh well, still really enjoyed it. ( )

The beginning was more confusing than Dune. By beginning, I mean the first 2/3 of the book. It got enjoyable after that. ( )

"The Gibson of The Peripheral is interested in ideas but he’s also very much interested in big-screen, popcorn-chewing thrills. Unlike more po-faced SF writers, he takes glee in kick-assery of an adolescent sort."
tilføjet af bookfitz | RedigerThe Guardian, Sam Leith (Nov 19, 2014)
 
"The Peripheral" is engaged with serious ideas — the moral pressure of life in late capitalist society, the state of identity in a world of mingled gamer-selves, online-selves, physical-selves — and through them it achieves the strange effect of making our own accelerated days feel quaint, at least partially analog for a bit longer, "oddly optimistic," still yet to endure anything truly apocalyptic.
tilføjet af bookfitz | RedigerChicago Tribune, Charles Finch (Oct 24, 2014)
 
"What sets each book apart is the worldbuilding that surrounds that plot kernel. This time around, it’s particularly intriguing."
tilføjet af bookfitz | RedigerKirkus Reviews (Oct 15, 2014)
 
"All of Gibson’s characters are intensely real, and Flynne is a clever, compelling, stereotype-defying, unhesitating protagonist who makes this novel a standout."
