Reviews

Virtual Light is a clever, interesting mystery set in 21st-century Los Angeles and San Francisco. Gibson's logical extensions of trends in criminology, security, television, religion, and law enforcement are as thorough and as well detailed as they are frightening. The story itself is fast-moving, intricate, and suspenseful. The author's gift for detail in descriptions of everyday 21st-century life and fixtures is an added treat. Frank Muller reads this production of the best-selling novel, and as usual with Recorded Books, the reading quality and production values are exceptional. Listeners will find this a well-crafted work of literature. Highly recommended for adult fiction collections.-Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., Ohio.

"Both exhilarating and terrifying . . . Although considered the master of 'cyberpunk' science fiction, William Gibson is also one fine suspense writer."--People

"A stunner . . . A terrifically stylish burst of kick-butt imagination."--Entertainment Weekly "Convincing . . . frightening . . . Virtual Light is written with a sense of craft, a sense of humor and a sense of the ultimate seriousness of the problems it explores."--Chicago Tribune "In the emerging pop culture of the information age, Gibson is the brightest star."--The San Diego Union-Tribune
