Neuromancer
Neuromancer | William Gibson
Neuromancer is the multiple award-winning novel that launched the astonishing career of William Gibson. The first fully-realized glimpse of humankind's digital future, it is a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about our technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations. Now, for the first time, Ace Books is proud to present this groundbreaking literary achievement in a trade paperback edition.

Another re read for my sci-fi book club...
It was fun but not as good as I remembered.

I think I‘m probably the last litten to post their #Top6Reads of 2019 so far. Took me a bit to narrow it down, according to my GoodReads challenge, I‘ve read 68 books since Jan 1st. Rating them 1-6 is -Neuromancer(fantastic), All Systems Red(Murderbot rules), Chernobyl(nuclear nightmare), Song Of Achilles(Greek love), Ruby Ridge(scary siege) & Six Of Crows(Oceans11 on ice). Highly recommend all six! 10⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

GlassAsDiamonds 🤦🏻‍♀️ Actually .... I haven‘t posted mine either!!!! 😂😂😂 Thanks for the reminder!! (Also - Six of Crows!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 and it‘s a good thing I didn‘t read this BEFORE I‘d left the bookstore ... I have Chernobyl in my hand 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂). (edited) 4mo

The book that started cyberpunk! Absolutely absorbing and fascinating! I‘m looking forward to the rest of the series. Case is so human, it‘s painful. Molly is one of the best female characters in sci-fi. This was my first foray into the cyberpunk sub-genre and it was worth it! Give Gibson a read, guys! If you like movies like Total Recall, Blade Runner, Running Man, etc., then you‘ll love this!! 156/1,001 #1001Books

writerlibrarian Some info on these : the shortest is The lover. Not for everyone. It's based on Duras' life in Vietnam as a young girl who takes a Chinese lover. 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) 7mo

Wow. I totally get why this is a sci-fi classic, this just blew my mind! It has the same sense of bleakness & future dread as Bladerunner with the blood lust of a Tarantino movie. Why have I waited so long to read it? If you love SciFi & you haven‘t read this yet, what are you waiting for??

“The Panthers Modern leader, who introduced himself as Lupus Yonderboy,”
I love that name! Lupus Yonderboy.
“ A rainbow forest of microsofts bristled behind his left ear”
I love old Sci-fi books that seem to predict the future. He also was the first to call it Cyberspace as well, plus, Gibson‘s idea of the Matrix was printed well before the movies.

rretzler Gibson was very prophetic in Neuromancer, wasn‘t he? How many people envisioned the internet in 1984? 7mo

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.

#BookMail Pt19 I stumbled upon these beautiful editions of classic SciFi novels when I was trawling Booktopia for a nice copy of Dune. 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‘m starting with Neuromancer.

If I had read this book when I was 16 it's angry head first run at the world would have become part of my DNA. Still it stands out as the cyberpunk classic that it is. Dark and bleak it's everything it needs to be. Jack in and download.

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.

Recently I found my old (cassette!!) copy of the Neuromancer read by author William Gibson. I had to find someone who could transfer it to CD so I could add it to my iTunes and put it on my phone, but now I'm starting to listen to it on my commute.

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.

There was that same sense of being surrounded by the sleeping inhabitants of a waking world he had no interest in visiting or knowing, of dull business temporarily suspended, of futility and repetition soon to wake again.

First delve into the world of cyberpunk and what a ride! The characters are perhaps never quite developed much beyond the scope of their immediate surroundings but they work in unison for a plot which sweeps you through networks and worlds seamlessly. Full of tricks and mystery, id highly recommend this book to anyone.

Somewhere between a pick and a so-so. I was pleasantly surprised to find elements of noir and heist adventures in it. Also intriguing were the number of things which Gibson writes about so clearly in 1984 which don't feel at all dated reading them today. I did find the writing style itself difficult to follow, and I wasn't so much invested in our protagonists as I was in the way this book has predicted and affected other science fiction.

This is a wildly creative science fiction novel that has helped to define the genre, as well as lending its themes and imagery to countless novels, movies, and video games that have followed it.
The story elements are somewhat typical, but there are other parts that are so imaginative that I found myself reading some parts over and over again.
I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys sci-fi.

Thanks @batsy for the #cult5 tag. I think all of these could be cult classics, but The Vegetarian seems too recent. Still, it's the kind of book I think of with this label so I'm calling it as a *future* cult classic 😋 If @ValerieAndBooks , @Natasha.C.Barnes , and @TobeyTheScavengerMonk want to play, would love to hear yours.

Natasha.C.Barnes I'm gonna have to look up what cult classic REALLY means, but these strike me as GREAT choices and I love the idea of identifying recent books that could/would be cult classics. 2y
batsy Loved Orlando! Can't wait to read the rest. Einstein's Dreams sounds fascinating and I've been meaning to read David Markson forever... #storyofmylife 2y
Billypar @Natasha.C.Barnes I've found this tag fascinating because of the definition questions. The working one I have in my head is a work that doesn't have mainstream popularity but has a passionate and devoted fan base. The part I'm less sure about is the material ...I feel like they have to have something unique about them that lead to some people being enthusiastic supporters and others being turned off.... Not sure though 🤔 2y
Billypar @batsy Isn't Orlando wonderful? There's nothing else like it that I know of. Went on my all-time favorites list instantly when I read it last year. I need to read more Markson- somehow I read and loved WM and never picked up another one. 2y
ValerieAndBooks Wow, I will have to think about this and see if I can come up with cult classics that haven‘t been mentioned already. I think of them as books that were not expected to gain a strong following and also maybe considered at least a bit weird. 2y

Four stars on #LibraryThing, a huge influence on Orwell and Huxley and the inventor of the word 'cyberspace': I couldn't finish it though. I haven't got a clue what it's about or what's happening.
Partly I due that to the fact that there are many, many words I don't understand (although I read English books all the time) and partly because I am just not interested enough, I guess. #1001books Picture: Vilna, Brac, Croatia

I'm a completist - I'm geeky enough to go looking for those books that, while dated, inspired other things. This book was one of those intrinsic references, though I didn't love it so much as its ideas. It also, coincidentally, made me like less some of its more obvious ripoffs. Don't give me that look, Keanu. I still adore a man as geekily committed to his craft as you. #geeklove #booklove17

My most #favegraphicnovels is The Long Tomorrow by Moebius and Dan O'Bannon. I tagged Gibson's Neuromancer because it was heavily influenced. The Long Tomorrow is a story about a noir detective in a dystopian city where androids are nothing new. Besides Gibson, it also influenced Ridley Scott's visuals for Bladerunner.

Almost 5 stars. I can't imagine what it would have been liked to read it in 1984. Reading it now, the setting is not alien, it's familiar but man, it's really vivid and I just dove in and went along for the ride.

I loved Molly. Strong, dedicated, whole Molly. Case, the broken but ultimately resilient and heroic is the perfect character for the reader to follow the story with to the end. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💝

I read this sci-fi classic for the first time earlier this year and, regrettably, I found that it had not aged well. Ideas that apparently seemed prescient in the 80s felt cliched now. The base story itself is fine as action, and Molly is a fascinating character, but I can't recommend it on any grounds other than that it's an important sci-fi milestone that sci-fi fans should have read.
