SPOOK COUNTRY is a complex, demanding novel. Narrator Robertson Dean has a solid delivery for this challenging story about spies, a mysterious inventor, and a new form of art that uses light as sculpture that can be seen only through a special visor. Dean's command of numerous accents makes his performance, and the novel itself, believable. Fans of Gibson's previous work, PATTERN RECOGNITION, will find his latest appealing. Newcomers may be put off by the apparent disconnectedness in the beginning of the book. But stick with it--in the end everything makes sense, and all the disparate pieces come together. Be warned, this is not a novel to half-listen to while distracted. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
