Review: Neuromancer (Sprawl #1)

User Review  - C. Eaton - Goodreads

It took me a while to get into this. It was full of jargon and I had a really hard time grasping the layout of the world and the political structures. To be honest, I still don't understand it but I ... Read full review

User Review  - Robert - Goodreads

I find it really annoying when an author creates terminology, slang, a whole language that their characters use, but offer no way of accessing that language for the reader. It feels pretentious, self ... Read full review
