The accolades and acclaim are endless for William Gibson's coast-to-coast bestseller. Set in the post-9/11 present, Pattern Recognition is the story of one woman's never-ending search for the now...

Cayce Pollard is a new kind of prophet-a world-renowned "coolhunter" who predicts the hottest trends. While in London to evaluate the redesign of a famous corporate logo, she's offered a different assignment: find the creator of the obscure, enigmatic video clips being uploaded to the internet-footage that is generating massive underground buzz worldwide.

Still haunted by the memory of her missing father-a Cold War security guru who disappeared in downtown Manhattan on the morning of September 11, 2001-Cayce is soon traveling through parallel universes of marketing, globalization, and terror, heading always for the still point where the three converge. From London to Tokyo to Moscow, she follows the implications of a secret as disturbing-and compelling-as the twenty-first century promises to be...

"He took a duck in the face at 250 knots" :) most of the guys who have read the book love this mantra and so i do. the story forces you to read it as fast as possible, you'll like to know who's the director of the footage parts and whats its purpose, who's observing Cacey's various places and whos just playing his role. the characters are pretty interesting (gibson could write a few books about everyone's background and it wouldn't be boring) and i'm impressed how he managed to switch from sci-fi to present but its as exciting as his previous books.
