Review quote

"Potent and heady."--Philadelphia Daily News "An intriguing cast of characters and a tough, glitzy image of computer consciousness and the future of mankind."--Richmond Times-Dispatch "Count Zero shares with Neuromancer that novel's stunning use of language, breakneck pacing, technological innovation, and gritty brand-name realism."--Fantasy Review "William Gibson's prose, astonishing in its clarity and skill, becomes high-tech electric poetry."--Bruce Sterling "Suspense, action...a lively story...a sophisticated version of the sentient computer, a long way from the old models that were simply out to Rule the World."--Locus
