Brilliance. Beauty. Beyond anything I had expected from fiction to the point that I read it, and I have yet to read anything that expanded my mind as much as Neuromancer had. William Gibson redefined sci-fi with forever and, in doing so, predicted the world to come in so many ways it's almost terrifying. Perfect dark-future stuff, it fires the imagination, raising questions about who we are, body, mind, or personality, who controls us, what motivates us and why. Read with Count 0 and Mona Lisa Overdrive it makes for the sort of series of books that leaves you feeling crushed that they've ended.
Read it if, somehow, you haven't managed to yet.
Are you reading it yet?
GO! GO NOW!
