Neuromancer

Recently, I decided that I needed to read William Gibson’s “Neuromancer” as it spawned the idea of cyberpunks, cyberspace etc. oh… and “The Matrix” (albeit slightly different from the film trilogy).

I’m rather disappointed, in the same way that I was when I finally read “Catcher in The Rye”.

I realise that this was one of the first of the genre, but I’ve had my fill of dystopian futures. I’m not sure what I expected as this feature of the book is a rather inescapable one. I’ll stick with it though, like I did “Dune” – perhaps I’ll think differently by the end.
