Spoiler alert.

Idoru (Bridge Trilogy, #2)Idoru by William Gibson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A light and amusing exploration of pattern matching, celebrities, interspecies love, and fandom. A few too many caricature only characters and a rushed conclusion left me wanting more (I've not looked at the other Bridge Trilogy books). The author examines some intriguing phenomenon but doesn't get enough into their implications. At its heart the book felt like the story of two unconnected characters inadvertently joining up to save the day.

UbikUbik by Philip K. Dick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A wonderful exploration of reality and psychics set in a world that offers salvation in spray can. Great stuff even with a few superficial characters.
