    Good, but poor ending

    As usual with Gibson, the concept and quality of writing are unsurpassed; however, this book is massively let down by one thing - quite simply the laziest ending in the history of writing. It's almost as if Gibson ran out of energy/interest for the book and carelessly wrapped it up with a lazy "and here a miracle happens" ending. Great shame as, until that point, this was a cracking read.

    The peripheral

    Took a lot of getting into. Only for Sci fi time travel devotees. Forcing us to write reviews does not help authors or readers

    Good but confusing in parts

    Good book with good underlying concept. Takes some following sometimes though, needed to flip back to identify characters from time to time.

    A bore

    Too many invented words that made the story largely incomprehensible. I was thoroughly bored and did not finish it. Very disappointed. Previous books had plot and character development to leaven the text. Not this time. Seems to be a triumph of word invention over story-telling.

    The Peripheral

    Got to love William Gibson - telepresence, alternate realities and so on. There are a few loose ends, but a very enjoyable read anyway.
