Considered a Sci-fi staple; the book that coined ‘cyberspace,‘ and birthed the cyberpunk genre.

Gibson‘s writing is vague and often confusing. Yet, there is something endearing in how it refuses to talk down to its audience, as if it‘s written for the people who live in the world Gibson creates. It‘s a tough read but I never felt myself wanting to quit even if I never quite knew what was happening.

Hard to recommend but still glad I read it.

I don‘t know if I‘m gonna be able to finish this one. It‘s very confusing and somewhat dull but I‘m trying to stick it out!

RamsFan1963 I always thought it was very overrated, since it's supposed to be the father of cyberpunk. 3mo

Ugh this was a really tough bail for me but I'm ultimately not enjoying myself and I think the time has come. This is one of my husband's favorite books so I wanted to give it a fair shot. This is by no means a poorly written book. It's a little too fantasy and a little too "throw you in the deep end" of sci-fi which is not my favorite genre. If you like sci-fi and fantasy I can see this being a good pick for you.

RamsFan1963 I think its overrated. A masterpiece of science fiction, as I've heard it called, seems a bit too grand. 5mo
jlowery999 I always struggle in this scenario, whether it actually is overrated or if I just don't get it. 5mo

Mind blown, open wide.
This author coined the term "cyberspace". He vividly built a world that would be later called cyberpunk. This sci-fi classic was NOT an easy read for me, but worth it.

This book started off interesting but by the end it seemed convoluted, I've heard good things about it over the years but the writing style just isn‘t for me.

I found the story difficult to follow because it jumps around a lot.

There was potential for world building but I could never see it in my mind's eye, due to the poor writing which lacked the details.

The storyline could have been cool, but the author just complicates it.

DrexEdit I keep thinking I need to read William Gibson. He seems like canon somehow. Maybe the actual birth of a genre is not all that interesting though? 😄 Maybe you have to wait for others to pick up and refine it and make it interesting. Hmmmmm. . . 8mo
TheNeverendingTBR @DrexEdit I guess it's all down to preference. 8mo
RaeLovesToRead I also wasn't a fan. The funniest thing about it is that the MC keeps acquiring awesome weapons and then not using them. One weapon he literally acquires and then dumps in a bin. He has a friend with razor claws... do they see any action? Nooo. Chekhov would be most unimpressed. 8mo

TracyReadsBooks I first picked up this book because it‘s the origination of cyberpunk and really thought I should read it. I liked (didn‘t love) it but had to read it twice before I got it. Even so, I‘m not entirely convinced I really got it…but reading it twice was enough. 😂🤷‍♀️ 8mo

This is how the book that I have just started reading begins. A prophetic novel from many points of view, recognized by all as the rising star of cyberpunk.

I know this is foundational af for sci-fi, essentially coining cyberpunk, but I think I really learned I'm not a huge sci-fi person. Some of the philosophical elements were cool and I did appreciate the way Gibson left descriptions of cyberspace often vague, allowing the book to remain undated way longer those most sci-fi. Wish there was more than one female character. Doesn't pass the Bechdel test lmao.

I can‘t quite describe this book in words that would summarize it in a complete and whole way. It reads like a modern sci-fi style book but the impact of it makes me think of modern classics like 1984 or Fahrenheit 451. The book leaves a lot to your own imagination, being vague in some areas but also extremely specific in others. I absolutely thought this book was an excellent read and look forward to reading it again!

Vansa So true. The best description I would be able to come up with would be 'The Matrix' but darker and grittier! 1y

This book is undoubtedly influential as it advanced the genre and pretty much created a sub-genre. But I felt so detached the entire time. I could have taken my time and read a brief summary with definition of terms for each chapter but after I did that for part one and still didn‘t connect at all I plowed through quickly. I still did want to read it because it‘s foundational but even if everything was clear I still wouldn‘t rate it too highly.

Have been on Litsy sporadically the past few days, so am posting my final 5 days of #12Booksof2020 as one post with brief notes for each.
*Gaines' A Lesson Before Dying had been on my TBR for awhile. I read it in late June, in the wake of George Floyd's murder & the BLM protests. I was profoundly moved by this novel of compassion & humanity.
*The North Water. Existential literature smuggled in an adventure story/serial killer narrative.👇

vivastory Atmospheric & foreboding, both literally & metaphorically.
*The First Bad Man. Crass, irreverent, strange, hilarious, oddly touching. I expected to hate this novel & yet I was strangely moved by it.
*Neuromancer. One of two cyberpunk classics read in 2020 & this was the better of the two. The source for countless internet jargon & still surprisingly fresh years later.
*Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead. As anarchic as the poet

Megabooks I seriously need to get to Drive Your Plow, but oh the siren song of nonfiction! 2y
See All 14 Comments
vivastory @Megabooks It's funny you mention nf, because I almost added to my note on the Gaines that when I read it there were a lot of racist self-education lists floating around & they invariably contained exclusively nonfiction. After I read As I Lay I couldn't help but feel that fiction was getting the short end of the stick on not being included on those lists. I do think those lists are great & I think self-education is a lofty goal, but... 2y
Megabooks I agree that education happens with both fiction and nonfiction. The education/escapism line between nonfiction/fiction is not as clear as some people think. I find memoirs more escapist than fiction, and I‘m loving the satire of race and a NXVIM-like company/cult in Black Buck. That book could definitely be taken as educational in corporate racism. (edited) 2y

The Neuromancer Trilogy formed not only the Sci-Fi genre and created Cyberpunk, but had also a great impact on other arts and our society.

My book actually is all three books in one and I'd recommend reading all parts as close as possible. The story is very complex, but fascinating from the beginning.

I already plan to reread it, since I admit that I didn't get everything that was going on.

Definitely a highlight!

Buechersuechtling I only know and have read volume 1 – which I loved in huge parts, although at a certain point I think that the story falls flat – would you name the other 2 for me❓ Thank you. 🙇🏽‍♀️ 2y
Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling In German the other two parts are called “Biochips“ and “Mona Lisa Overdrive“ - I'd recommend reading them as well :) 2y

Well, I finished it. I didn‘t enjoy it, I‘m not entirely sure what happened, but it‘s done. I can see why this was a seminal work, but I didn‘t like it. I‘m glad I didn‘t finish it for my class all those years ago, because I can‘t imagine having to write about it.

#bookspinbonanza 10/20, halfway there with ten days to go! Think I can get at least my next five.

TheAromaofBooks Sometimes you can appreciate the writing without really enjoying the story... good luck on the second half of the Bonanza! I'm still on book three! 😂 2y
RamsFan1963 @ravenlee It may be sacrilegious to some people, but I think the book is overrated. Yes it was very influential during the 80s cyberpunk phase, but as a book alone it's not that good a story. Gibson has written much better books since then. 2y
ravenlee @TheAromaofBooks I have often had the dichotomy of disliking a story while appreciating its writing (Madame Bovary for example), but I didn‘t like the writing here either. I get why it‘s important and I‘m glad I got through it, but...eh. 2y
ravenlee @RamsFan1963 I agree. I don‘t generally like sci-fi anyway, partly because I find too often the world-building minutiae overwhelm any kind of story or character development. Also I feel it ages more swiftly than other literature, which is definitely the case with this one. Honestly, it made me think of the movie Hackers, and how cheesy it was and I still like it, but it makes more sense to me than this world. 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 2y
DaveGreen7777 I had a so-so reaction to this book as well. 😕 I thought some of the concepts were cool, but the characters were kind of bland to me, and overall I just wasn‘t very interested in what was happening. 2y

Starting this one, with some reservations. According to the almost-completely-faded receipt, I bought this in Dec 2003. It bookmarked page 30, which is as far as I got that time. It was for a sci-fi independent study with my absolute favorite lit professor, and the only book he assigned that I didn‘t finish (for that class). Fingers crossed for a better go this time - this is #bookspinbonanza 10 and my set in the future bingo space.

TheAromaofBooks Good luck!!! 2y

I like her 1990s remix after the movie came out better. Zimmer i wouldn't reread but it's a fun yet quite violent retelling of the Arthurian myth. Eco I would reread maybe. Difficult, yet this is his easiest novel. PD James, i reread years later and it was as fresh and amazing. I haven't rearead Gibson. (edited) 3y

Still laid up in bed feeling like death, but at least I can read now. I can‘t believe I‘ve never read Neuromancer, so far it s brilliant. In a future to come, Case was one of the best data-jackers in the Matrix, until a deal went sour & he was infected with a neurotoxin that denied him access to the web. Almost suicidal, he‘s offered a job that will restore his access, but who is he working for? Written before the internet it seems prophetic.

It‘s a set of 6 master works of 20th century Sci-fi including Dune, Stranger In A Strange Land, The Left Hand Of Darkness, 2001 A Space Odyssey, The Once And Future King & of course, Gibson‘s debut novel which practically predicted the internet & AI with a foreword by Neil Gaiman.

I've lost count of the number of times I've read Neuromancer, but listening to William Gibson read it was a totally new experience. While he's not the most polished of performers, there's something about his unusual cadence that just works with his style of writing. I also liked the limited use of music and sound effects that helped give it a bit of a radio play feel, even with the single narrator. Great book and excellent audio presentation.

susurran I owned this audiobook on CD well before the Internet Age and a year or two before I first met Bill in person, so jacking in to this performance was the first time I'd ever heard his voice. Absolutely stunned me, not at all what I was expecting; but you're right, his cadence and his odd, soft, strangely-accented voice is the perfect counterbalance to the material. Glad you enjoyed it! 1y

Man-machine interfaces. Hive minds. Personality transformations. Gibson weaves a fast-paced story, set in a world whose vastness can only be glimpsed through scraps of information and scattered references throughout the text.

It demands your attention as the author plunges you headlong into the world of the Sprawl with no guiding hand at your side.

Definitely not a light read, but a thoroughly enjoyable one nonetheless.
