After a strong start with Virtual Light I almost feel let down with Idoru. The concept is innovative but it just seems to fall short. Mostly because Gibson didn't draw any strong characters. I found myself not connecting with any of the characters and not really finding any of them interesting.I continued reading for two reasons. One being that this is book two of a three volume set. The other being for Gibson's world building and use of descriptive language. It was worth it just to read his version of a slightly future Tokyo.On to the third with high hopes.
