What the community says about Neuromancer
There are no comments yet!
- "This is a very interesting and edgy novel. It kept me involved in the character and plot throughout. I really enjoyed reading it.""Another book to add to the list of Sci Fi to read. Classical award winning read. That I look forward to reading."
- "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."
- "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. "
- "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."

in What are the best cyberpunk books"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."
