Description

Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer is a cyberpunk, science fiction masterpiece--a classic that ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the twentieth century's most potent visions of the future. The Matrix is a world within the world, a global consensus-hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace... Henry Dorsett Case was the sharpest data-thief in the business, until vengeful former employees crippled his nervous system. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister Tessier-Ashpool business clan. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction. The winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer was the first fully-realized glimpse of humankind's digital future--a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about our technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.show more

Review quote

"Freshly imagined, compellingly detailed, and chilling in its implications."--The New York Times "Kaleidoscopic, picaresque, flashy, decadent...an amazing virtuoso performance."--The Washington Post "[Gibson]...invented the future with Neuromancer."--Entertainment Weekly "A mindbender of a read...fully realized in its geopolitical, technological, and psychosexual dimensions."--Village Voice "Science fiction of exceptional texture and vision."--San Francisco Chronicle "Unforgettable...The richness of Gibson's world is incredible."--Chicago Sun-Times "Here is an entirely new world, intense as an electric shock. William Gibson's prose, astonishing in its clarity and skill, becomes high-tech electric poetry...An enthralling adventure story, as brilliant and coherent as a laser. This is why science fiction was invented!"--Bruce Sterlingshow more

by Gira
"...It took me unusually long to finish this book, which, as busy as I've been with classes, is still something of an indicator that I wasn't really feeling it. I'm absolutely going to read more of Gibson's work, but Neuromancer, in the end, wasn't my kind of story. If you're a very tech-savvy type of person, a fan of the Matrix movies, or a fan of cyberpunk in general...I'd recommend this to you if you haven't read it already..."
