Going in, I expected Neuromancer to be a somewhat rigid science fiction story. What I found is a surprisingly poetic novel. William Gibson's prose never bores. The science, while complex and believable, never overshadows the emotions and the mystery at the core of the plot. It's no wonder that this book is considered to be one of the foundational texts of the cyber punk genre. It is a very human story wrapped in an unfamiliar, but an entirely imaginable future setting.
Winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer is a science fiction masterpiece--a classic that ranks as one of the twentieth century's most potent visions of the future. Case was the sharpest data-thief in the matrix--until he crossed the wrong people and they crippled his nervous system, banishing him from cyberspace. Now a mysterious new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run at an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, a mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case is ready for the adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction. Neuromancer was the first fully-realized glimpse of humankind's digital future--a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.
