Now Reading: Getting Started with Arduino by Massimo Banzi
Just Finished: Spook Country by William Gibson
Spook Country was less a crypto-thriller than it was your typical spy/mystery story. Three characters, Hollis Henry, former rock star; Milgrim, drug-addled linguist; and Tito, the Kid, are swept into a whirlpool of mystery by Hubertus Bigend, mysterious billionare; Brown, the mysterious agent; and the Old Man, a mysterious Old Man.
I must confess, I kept reading because I wanted to find out what the Mac Guffin really was. It turns out it was the Maltese Falcon pirate booty full of Dalmatians… well… not what I was expecting.
In all, an okay spy/mystery. I bought it from the discount hardcover pile in my local mega-book-mart and I suppose I did get my money’s worth.
