A review by theybedax
Neuromancer, by William Gibson

4.0

This was rather hard to make myself read. Mostly because this is not a casual read. This will require you to stop, breath, and pay the hell attention. That being said, it is fantastic. There are so many stand out moments of just brutal beauty. One stand out moment would be this beauty, "Really, my artiste, you amaze me. The lengths you will go to in order to accomplish your own destruction. The redundancy of it! The speed to eat your sense away, drink to keep it all fluid, Linda for sweeter sorrow, and the street to hold the axe. How far you've come, to do it now, and what grotesque props. . . . Playgrounds hung in space, castles hermetically sealed, the rarest rots of old Europa, dead men sealed in little boxes, magic out of China. . . .But I supposed that is the way of the artiste, no? You needed this world built for you, this beach, this place. To die." There are so many beautiful, dark, frightening, poignant moments that make the grind of reading so worth the brain power.
