Customer Review

on 26 June 2001
After reading some 100 pages of this book, I realised how many other books, TV shows and movies it has directly and indirectly influenced. The shock was looking at the inside cover to realise that the book was first published in the mid-1980s. It is so far ahead of its time that it's scary. The first few pages were a little off-putting and I couldn't quite accept Gibson's writing style, but with a bit of perseverence, either his editor tightened things up, or I got used to it. And from that moment on, I enjoyed every page. Just like modern times, there is too much information and it takes real reading to understand and absorb every detail, every new construct and every fictional technology. But it's worth the effort. A class sci-fi book in a genre overly-populated with dirge. It stands up against any genre as a very good book indeed.
