A review by joel_buck
Neuromancer, by William Gibson


I think I love this, but it kind of snuck up on me in the last 15 minutes since I finished it. I wasn't meshing with it for the first 1/3 or so, I felt kind of split between reading what I assumed was blueprint for all the sci-fi that's come after and being confused by the things I couldn't immediately recognize/picture. As is often the case when I read a classic, I'd love to know what I'd have made of it if I'd read it on release. I know it's supposed to be unfilmable (and that a lot of what's in here has made its way into other movies already) but I'd love to see someone succeed in adapting it. I'm about to start scouring the internet for anything I can get my hands about this, I feel like getting to know it better is only going to make me love it more.
