by William Gibson
read this book as it was recommended to me by a friend as a classic.
I’m sure it was revolutionary in its time, but I didn't enjoy it. I
found it very difficult to follow. It was suggested to me that I should
sit down and try and read it all in a couple of sittings. It would
probably have made more sense if I had and I may try and do that in the
just didn’t warm to the main character, Case. However I don’t think
you’re meant to. All the drugs references did nothing for me either.
Maybe I didn’t play hard enough in my youth. I also think software and
virtual reality has come on too far for what was in the book to seem
magical and new.
Unless I re-read Neuromancer and enjoy it, I won’t be reading any more William Gibson.
