This was the book that put cyberpunk on the map, taking a Blade Runner dystopian future and filling it with cyber-jockies and street samurai.Case had been one of the best at his job, until he tried to fence some of the data for his own profit. After the original customers worked him over, he can't w...

The work has merit, but I found it to be a dull read. Too much technopunk fantasy wankage. It did age well, however.

This was the first cyberpunk novel I ever read, and I fell in love with the genre instantly. The writing is amazing, starting with the first paragraph and going right to the end. He took story telling to an entirely new level and created a genre at the same time (sure, there were a few before him,...

Neuromancer was the first masterpiece of cyberpunk. It invented the Matrix, and coined the term 'cyberspace'. Unfortunately, I kind of hated reading it. The novel, by William Gibson, follows the exploits of a cyber-cowboy by the name of Case. Cut-off from his life as a super-hacker by a vengeful e...

But now a new and very mysterious employer recrui...

I've mentioned before that I have a program that pulls a random book from a list of all the books in my to-read stack. I can't remember if I've mentioned its propensity to pull out books I've most recently added to it, but I've since realized that most of the books I've added to it I've bought in th...

This is my third reading of Neuromancer, the first time was while in my teens decades ago, I hated it then and was not able to read more than 50 pages. The second time was around five years ago, I liked it better then but still found much of it inaccessible. This third reading was inspired by [b: Th...

I've felt like I've been in a bit of a reading rut lately. It feels like I've been unimpressed by most of the books I've read lately, but I've been getting my recommendations from the same sources and following the same due-diligence procedures as I have in the past. I refuse to believe books are ge...

I'm slightly ashamed of the fact that I took 11 days to read one 300-page novel (an abysmal reading speed for me), especially since I can't actually work out why I found Neuromancer so abominably, fundamentally dull. It's partly, I suspect, due to the fact that I bought it mainly on the strength o...

Ground zero for cyberpunk culture, or what we now call "daily life". I read this for the first time in high school circa 1998, and it had a profound impact on me. This is probably my fifth time reading it, and it's stunning how much closer civilization has grown to resemble Neuromancer's hyper-acc...
