I had read a few novels by William Gibson, since he was the precursor of the Cyberpunk genre, and it’s a genre that I enjoy quite a bit, but at the time, I had trouble with one of his books. I believe that it was Neuromancer. I can’t remember why I had trouble with this book, but since reading Zero History, I might have to read it again to see what it was.
Nevertheless, this is about William Gibson’s latest book, Zero History. I didn’t greet the release with anticipation, but after I read a few reviews and saw how it was supposed to integrate present technology with future tech, I was interested enough to order it a few weeks ago. I quickly read it and was amazed by the novel. The novel is short, but it’s filled with interesting concepts and ideas. The whole premise includes Japanese secret brands. In the book, this is about the secret brand Gabriel Hounds.
Let me just start by saying that this is a great book and I’ll be very happy to read it again in the future. I’m glad I purchased a hardcover 1st edition. I’ve rarely thought about clothes in this manner, but he whole concept of secret brands is really interesting.
