packetcat reads 2022 Week 10 – The Peripheral by William Gibson

Pages: 467
Purchased from: Kobo

Folks, I really didn’t enjoy this one. Right off the bat, the book just drops you into a world without introducing the basics of how it works. Characters just come in with no explanation for their back story which makes this seem like the second book in the series which it isn’t, its the first.

The chapters are very short and the book keeps switching perspectives which makes the book feel very fast but also at the same time not much happens in each chapter so the book felt interminably long.

I will not be reading the sequel to this which for this series of posts, is first. Hell, I don’t think I’ll be be reading a William Gibson book again anytime in the near future.
