Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With narrator Robertson Dean at the helm, this story of a washed-out computer hacker who is hired to do the unthinkable is reborn. Dean’s heavy tone brings with it a weight that lifts the tale to new heights…The result is a listening experience that bears all the weight of a modern techno-thriller with all the excitement of an age-old adventure tale. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Though it appeared before the advent of the World Wide Web, William Gibson’s seminal work is eerily prescient. Much of the book takes place in cyberspace, an expression Gibson coined and defined…Gibson’s protagonist, Case, is a computer hacker…and so begins the novel’s swift unfolding. The canonical book explores the implications of increasingly powerful artificial intelligence.” New York Times
“Kaleidoscopic, picaresque, flashy, and decadent…Neuromancer, in every sense, is state-of-the-art.” Washington Post
“Exceptional texture and vision...Gibson opens up a new genre, with a finely crafted grittiness and a number of literary and computer inventions.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Epic in scale...shimmers like chrome in a desert sun.” Wall Street Journal
“Fully realized in its geopolitical, technological, and psychosexual dimensions...A mind bender of a read.” Village Voice
“A debut novel set for brain stun! Streetwise SF... one of the most unusual and involving narratives to be read in many an artificially induced blue moon!” Times (London)
“A revolutionary novel.” Publishers Weekly
