BTW, I finished it a couple of days ago.

My comments above are all pretty much remained true through the remainder of the book. The characters and plot keep on melding through the end of the book, and become much easier after you get the cadence of the book. I think it's a worthy successor to Pattern Recognition.

My personal rating list (for anyone who wants to compare how I'd stack up Gibson books):

7. Mona Lisa Overdrive
6. All Tomorrow's Parties
5. Idoru
4. The Difference Engine
3. (tie) Burning Chrome
3. Pattern Recognition
2. (tie) Neuromancer
2. Count Zero
1. Virtual Light

Edit to add: I don't know what this one will be named, but I do hope there's a third book to make this one a trilogy also.

2nd Edit to add: After reading jmorton's post below (and I agree fully with it...) I'd place Spook Country at about 3.5 on the above list.
