NOT WORTH CONSUMING

I started reading this but just couldn’t get into it. My biggest problem was that the imagery was just too far out and I had trouble visualizing it.

WORTH CONSUMING!

I was just barely 15 when this was published and it fell into my hot little hands. I was already a science fiction fan, but this book made me realize how poetic the genre can be. Lots have been stricken by his cool “high tech low life” milieu, but it’s the prose that caught me, and still does, right up to Gibson’s latest, Spook Country.

But Neuromancer is still my first love…

Why I gave up consuming this — 7 years ago

I tried to read it when i was about 14 (i was an advanced reader, but not this advanced). couldn’t get into the dry language.

maybe i should give it another go.

WORTH CONSUMING!

Not bad at all – I almost thoroughly enjoyed this one. I’d give at least a 7 out of ten… probably more like an 8. Here’s the novel that spawned a whole new subgenre. Sad ending.

WORTH CONSUMING!

I just finished Neuromancer for the first time and I’m not sure I get it. The story seemed pretty good. It kept me engaged. I’m just not sure if I am supposed to understand all the details about what he is talking about. It was really out there. I couldn’t conceptualize it all.

WORTH CONSUMING!

What’s with the (Remembering Tomorrow) subtitle or whatever that is? Anyway, “Neuromancer” is fantastic. Every time I pick it up, I get sucked in by the cold, hard beauty of the prose. The book drags you right into it’s vision. I’ve read it several times and I’m sure I’ll read it again.

too nihilistic for me, but overall not that bad

A story about this — 8 years ago

Considering the copyright is dated 1984, it was fun to see Gibson predictions of a VR internet and devices like those he called “microsofts”. Very entertaining and fun. One other surprise: I didn’t realize that cyberpunk was so dark and nihilistic.

Densely written and full of lovely metaphors.

Starts powerfully and never lets up. Amazing writing style.

A story about this — 10 years ago

I grabbed this on a whim, and I’m very glad. It seems a bit obscured at first, but once you get pulled into Gibson’s world, you won’t want to leave.

it.. too much detail to get into, so far.

A story about this — 10 years ago

I read this after having read Vinge’s short “True Names”, and frankly I thought it was much better cyberpunk, though less futuristic. That was the first story in this genre by the way.

A story about this — 11 years ago

I’ve read this book several times. It never gets old, its what started Cyberpunk.

A story about this — 11 years ago

This was my first cyberpunk book (of many). It was a gift from a friend for my (summer) birthday after eighth grade; I was disappointed I didn’t get Magic: the Gathering cards. Little did I know!
