Case was the sharpest data thief in the matrix--until he crossed the wrong people and they crippled his nervous system, banishing him from cyberspace. Now a mysterious new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run at an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, a mirror-eyed street samurai, to watch his back, Case is ready for the adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction. Neuromancer was the first fully realized glimpse of humankind's digital future--a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.… (meer)

    Aeryion: Though Rubicon Harvest is not cyber-punk, the worlds within are reminiscent of Philip K. Dick and Gibson's gritty, raw Sprawl-like society--complete with hyper-advanced computer processing (liquid digital optical processors!) and synthetic designer drugs that make 'jacking -in' and Substance-D seem like candy!… (meer)

The Ulysses for sci-fi fans. A bit too esoteric for me, though I admire the spaghetti-like prose, and the spaghetti-like cover (that should definitely be a word). I enjoyed most of the first part, but every added section left me more and more confused until I eventually lost interest and decided to cook some spaghetti instead. ( )

There was no motivation, no conflict, no struggle. The voice from behind the scenes told them to move and they moved. They asked themselves "where are we going?" but the answer eluded them until the end. Then they finally got there and the story ended. A bleak, pointless journey toward something vague. It reminded me of Kafka a little bit. But in Kafka's story the man at least tries to fight the ambiguous environment, he is in conflict with the world. Here the characters don't fight, they are just pawns of something bigger.
Along the way they encounter futuristic scenery, apply futuristic gadgets against other futuristic gadgets. Change location. Repeat.
The feeling of being a pawn resonated with my own existential dread and I wanted the characters to break their monotonous cart ride, to burst through the paper walls surrounding them so tightly. But they didn't. There were just occasional glimpses through cracks that showed a rich alien world that also feels kind of familiar. ( )

Undeniably a landmark. Gibson is really flexing his muscles, at times a bit too hard, but I love the bits of Burroughs sprinkled throughout.

The team isn't actually very good, is it? Molly gets her leg broken minutes into their first caper, Armitage is psychotic, Riviera is evil and is working at cross purposes with the team. Is Case actually good? Can we even know? I am questioning Wintermute's judgement. ( )

After hearing a lot about this novel I finally decided to give it a try - although some more contemporary Gibson's work I find very difficult to read and comprehend. I have to say that this one, although it is one of his first novels and is slightly weird to the point you are no longer sure if what characters are experiencing is real world or not, is very good read. It has a starting point and finale, characters you can relate to and very interesting story.

Author tries to simulate future sleng and invents a lot of phrases along the way. This might be off-putting and extremely confusing. Nevertheless give this one a try, it is interesting and very immersive read. I can understand why it is considered a corner stone book for cyberpunk SF.

Recommended for all SF aficionados (I am already looking for second and third part of trilogy :)) ( )

The worst science fiction book I have read so far. The prose is far too dense, with unfamiliar words and concepts, to even understand what may be happening.
Not recommended. ( )

A new vocabulary for a transformed reality: the deeply influential cyberpunk classic, 30 years on from its original publication

I have to apologize for failing to review William Gibson's "Neuromancer" when it appeared last year. I was led to believe I had done Mr. Gibson an injustice when this novel (the author's first) won both of the important 1984 best-of-the-year awards in science fiction: the Nebula and the Hugo. Now that I have read the book, I would like to cast a belated ballot for Mr. Gibson.

Ovo je roman koji je započeo kiberpank revoluciju, prva knjiga koja je dobila sveto trojstvo nagrada u žanru naučne fantastike - Hugo, Nebula i Filip K. Dik.

Sa Neuromantom, Vilijem Gibson je predstavio svetu kiberprostor i naučna fantastika više nikada nije bila ista. Gibson je svojim romanom najavio sve ono što je došlo godinama kasnije, Internet revoluciju, Matriks filmska trilogiju i neverovatan razvoj informatičkih tehnologija. Kejs je najbolji kompjuterski kauboj koji krstari informatičkim supermagistralama, povezujući svoju svest sa softverom u kiberprostoru, krećući se kroz obilje podataka, pronalazeći tajne informacije za onoga ko može da plati njegove usluge. Kada prevari pogrešne ljude, oni mu se svete na užasan način, uništavajući njegov nervni sistem, mikron po mikron. Proteran iz kiberprostora i zarobljen u svom otupelom telu, Kejs je osuđen na smrt u tehnološkom podzemlju, sve dok ga jednog dana ne angažuju misteriozni poslodavci. Oni mu nude drugu priliku i potpuno izlečenje. Jedini uslov je da prodre u matricu, neverovatno moćnu veštačku inteligenciju kojom upravlja poslovni klan Tezje-Ešpul.

See, those things, they can work real hard, buy themselves time to write cookbooks or whatever, but the minute, I mean the nanosecond, that one starts figuring out ways to make itself smarter, Turing'll wipe it. Nobody trusts those fuckers, you know that. Every AI ever built has an electromagnetic shotgun wired to its forehead.
I never did like to do anything simple when I could do it ass-backwards.
Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts. … A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.
"To call up a demon you must learn its name. Men dreamed that, once, but now it is real in another way. You know that, Case. Your business is to learn the names of programs, the long formal names, names the owners seek to conceal. True names ...." [AI Neuromancer to Case, p243]
