Agency, William Gibson picks up an exploration of the future that he started about five years ago in his novel titled, The Peripheral. Artificial intelligence takes the form of an entity named Eunice whose autonomy plays into the fears of those who see conflict coming in the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence. Gibson adds a layer to the story from a more distant future in which hobbyists interact with the past to nudge toward certain outcomes. Gibson writes with great skill, imagination and insight. I find myself thinking about Eunice long after I finished this novel. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Agency from amazon.com.
