Spook Country - William Gibson

I'm a great fan of William Gibson - always have been, always will be. This means I enjoyed this book. It is... more William Gibson. Same elements as ever, down to the VR cyberspace and Voodoo. It feels like he's written the same book again, but I don't care because I love the words. Over the last twenty-something years the settings have changed, but that's only because time's moved on, and he's always writing about some alternative early 21st century. I wonder if he'll be writing alternative histories in 20 years time?
