What made the experience of listening to Zero History the most enjoyable?
Less futuristic or dystopian than his pervious novels, this book is a form of contemporary thriller, but as Gibson himself says for any reader "who's about to get on a 12hr flight and buys a copy Zero History expecting Clancy, they're going to be very, very disappointed" Slightly biased possibly as I work in the field Gibson describes in this book, I'm struck how he maintains an uncanny knack throughout the Blue Ant series to so accurately caricature the authentic essence of the dysfunctional and sometimes sinisterly powerful creative industries in a loosely charming way and with classic Gibson-esque prose and style found in his previous books.Once your used to Robertson Dean's voice-it took some getting used to in the last book (Spook Country)- you realise h'e the best man for the job. Really enjoyable, beautifully written and a decent length.

Yeah, but I'd not spoil that for you.
Any additional comments?
The final book in the Blue Ant trilogy, Zero History is quite excellent. Cleverly, the main focus of this book is the minor plot threads from the first two novels, and it feels perfectly natural. Can be read as a stand alone, though you will get so much more out of the rich story if you're familiar with Pattern Recognition and Spook Country. 10/10
