In a lot of different ways, Pattern Recognition reminds me of some postmodern books I've read, especially Infinite Jest. IJ also exhibits signs of our society's preoccupation with brands (Large corporations advertise by sponsoring/subsidizing a year. For example, "Year of Dairy Products from the American Heartland.") Also, during the discussion of Slow River, conspicuous consumption. These are themes that also pop up in PR.
