    "This was a really interesting read. It isn't exactly the greatest science fiction novel of all time, but I really enjoyed it. The writing was slightly dated, but still understandable."

    "When I was 15, I bought this book and began reading it (this was in 1985-1986) when the book had been out. It transformed me and gave me a life-long love of cyberpunk fiction. Of course, this was before we called it that. Neuromancer will transport you to a dystopian future where the megacorporations have replaced the governments and the virtual reality consensual hallucination that is the Matrix (nothing to do with the movie, this one makes sense) is a place where Console Cowboys raid banks and steal data - the real currency. Neuromancer has many subtle twists to the plot. Just when you think you have it nailed down, it changes on you and you have to re-evaluate your preconceptions. If you like cyberpunk, or wonder what the "old craze" was ever about, Neuromancer is THE book to start with. William Gibson is a visionary and was able to see things that we have now. Read it and you;ll see what I mean. No global network existed in 1985 (well it did, but that's splitting hairs), cyberwear is still a long ways off, but we now have prostetics almost as good as the real thing. THIS book is where settings like Shadowrun came from. I can't recommend it enough. Gibson's writing isn't slow or drawn out, his visuals instantly transport you to the iconic areas he describes - you can almost smell the harbor in Chiba, feel Case's SAS nausea, and more. Just read it!"

    "Neuromancer was a great way for me to pass the time while flying or on a bus ride. I still enjoy rereading it from time to time whenever I have a couple hours to spare."

    "I'm a big fan of science fiction books, so I checked out Neuromancer. I would say it definitely heightens the bar for the genre and definitely earned its awards. "

    "I have not been much of a fan of new science fiction novels but really enjoy some of the classics from the 1980-1990 range. Neuromancer actually turned out better than I expected. William Gibson has turned out to be one of my favorite authors."
  • Dorothy Lawrence
    Written on May 18, 2018
    "This is a very good book and I love this author William Gibson. This is a cyber punk science fiction trope set in what could be our future. It is a very bleak portrait that the author paints and the atmosphere reminds one of Bladerunner's dark and desolate landscape. All his books are suspenseful and interesting with a dark theme running throughout that is still gripping and hard to put down. It has a few sexual scenes and language . Worth a read. "

    "I had heard more than once that this is one of the best sci-fi books in existence, and I am going to agree. I suspect I will be one of those people who reads it more than once."

    "Imaginative, incredible, draws you in from page one, are a few descriptive words that accurately describe Neuromancer by William Gibson. Geeks alike rejoice and dive into this dangerously brilliant adventure."

    "Hugo awards for best novel is a very competitive event and I think “Neuromancer” by William Gibson deserves such an award. In my opinion though, it is not my best book which won the Hugo award. It is a very good book. It is a very good read for a good day, even a depressed day, but there are other novels which I prefer to place in the rank of best from the Hugo awards. Although I have not read much Hugo award books, but I can say that “Spin” by Robert Charles Wilson or even “Among others” by Jo Walton are my choices for this category."

    "I am not really sure about this one as I can not find anything in the solution that says this book won the Hugo Award."

    "This is a true classic. It has won the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards. It's a very potent visions of the future. This version is mass market paperback and the print quality can sometimes be lacking."

    "I read this book back in college and it was okay. However, I found most of the stories too unrealistic and quite frankly unbelievable. I can't say that I enjoyed it but I think some people might like it. "

    "Neuromancer is a book by William Gibson. It is available from Amazon for $13.60 for a paperback. It is a sci-fi/cyberpunk book. The story is about Case and his adventures in a digital world. He was once a data thief in the matrix. He crossed the wrong people and got banished from cyberspace. It fits the topic nicely."
