Product description

Review

Praise for Neuromancer

"Freshly imagined, compellingly detailed, and chilling in its implications."--The New York Times

"Kaleidoscopic, picaresque, flashy, decadent...an amazing virtuoso performance."--The Washington Post

"Science fiction of exceptional texture and vision...Gibson opens up a new genre, with a finely crafted grittiness."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Epic in scale...shimmers like chrome in a desert sun."--The Wall Street Journal

"A revolutionary novel."--Publishers Weekly

"In with the ruthless violence, the hyperreality, the betrayal and death, is an unquenchable love of language. Gibson has that in common with Le Guin and with J. G. Ballard. Neuromancer sings to us as a collage of voices, a mixed chorus, some trustworthy and others malicious, some piped through masks."--James Gleick

"Streetwise SF... one of the most unusual and involving narratives to be read in many an artificially induced blue moon."--London Times

"Unforgettable...the richness of Gibson's world is incredible."--Chicago Sun-Times
