‘Brilliant… a delight to read. No one can ever hope to out-Gibson Gibson… A true original’
‘Gibson’s most accomplished book to date, a futurist hybrid of Fleming and Deighton and Bester’
‘Gibson can spin a gripping yarn. He builds up a great head of steam within the first few pages and doesn’t relax until the end’
Times Literary Supplement

Many a times the third book of a trilogy is published only to fulfill contractual obligations: this is definitely NOT the case here. Every one of those three is a standalone masterpiece.
Sure, the Sprawl trilogy defined cyberspace, wireheads, zaibatsu-controlled society and futuristic discontent. But this is not the reason why one enjoys these novels so much. It is the beautiful poetic language. The syncopated phrases. The direct effect of verbalized brand names. The noir feeling, rare at the time in a SF novel.
William Gibson had already reaped the fame and fortune from his first two novels. In this one you will find his images more bold, his phrases more relaxed and his writing more tight. Absolutely Beautiful!
Even reading only some pages brings up powerful imagery, unforgettable prose...
Start with Neuromancer. Then Count Zero. And finally this one.
A Masterpiece Trilogy!!! Own them all!!!
If you liked the first two books in the series (Neuromancer and Count Zero) then you will like this one, for in many ways it is the strongest book of the three.
If you are unfamiliar with the first two books then this is not the place to start. There are too many references that will be incomprehensible.
Not comparable to Neuromancer I'm afraid, but you can only make a breakthrough like that once! This book (along with Count Zero) gives a little more of the Neuromancer universe, plus Gibson's fast moving style, which is always a pleasure.
The whole story reminds me of another book: "Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" by Haruki Murakami.

Another good one from my fav authour. Good price and prompt delivery.Published 8 months ago by Oliver Stretton-Downes
Absolutely brilliant. Gibson makes most other Sci-Fi writers look like amateurs. Full of ideas and writes like Elmore Leonard - no higher praise in my book.Published 18 months ago by Pedro
