Being very much a visual reader, I found it very hard to place myself into the landscape of this book. I stopped and started reading this book 3 times before I finally just forced myself to read it ... Read full review

User Review  - Anna - Goodreads

When I was a teenager, I'd get into a great zone reading that is hard to recapture as an adult. I remember the feeling, laying on the couch, 4pm after school, delightfully getting back into the world ... Read full review

Review: Neuromancer (Sprawl #1)

User Review  - G0rd0 - Goodreads

In science fiction the author has full reign to go where ever and this guy goes way out there. Cool imagery of traveling over cyberspace all internet cowboy like shooting it out with AI programs. Entertaining, even if a little hard to follow. Read full review

This is another of those books I read in college that seemed like a "big deal" at the time, but which doesn't seem to hold up on reconsideration. It's not actually bad, but there doesn't seem to be ... Read full review

User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

Over-hyped. Not as good as everyone wanted me to believe it was. Would have been awesome when I was in Jr. High probably, but adults insisting this is a great work must be viewing it threw a thick lens of nostalgia. Read full review

User Review  - Yury - Goodreads

It's visionary and innovative but not enjoyable. It's hard to enjoy the book when half the time you don't understand what's going on. Motivations of most characters are unclear, it seems that the author imagined the what and the how of his world but did not much care about "why". Read full review

User Review  - Cristobal - Goodreads

Even though I didn't enjoy the book I applaud Gibson's amazing vision. The book was written almost 30 years ago and it still feels as futuristic as it probably did then. And it's a good kind of ... Read full review

User Review  - Barbara Fang - Goodreads

I heard from a few people that this is a must-read book, and it ended up in a set of ebooks I downloaded. I don't know if I just read it at the wrong time - I'm too young / I haven't read that much ... Read full review
