Neuromancer tells the story of Case, once a hot “cyberspace” cowboy who could infiltrate and rip off corporate databases. But he stole from his employer, who took revenge by crippling Case's nervous system, rendering him unable to hack. Case is then scooped off the street and given a second chance by a shadowy group of people who have big plans. In exchange for curing Case, they want him to help them infiltrate the core of a huge and powerful AI (artificial intelligence) called Wintermute. What was amazing about this novel was that it was written in 1984—but the concepts discussed are things that we now experience in our reality—cyberspace, the matrix (the Web), artificial intelligence, use of technology to treat disease/aging & DNA modification. As interesting as the concept was for this book, I found the book difficult to read—it is densely written, filled with a lot of jargon (it would have helpful to have a dictionary of the terms), with many characters who were difficult to keep track of. I think that if you are a computer enthusiast or gamer—this might be the book for you. For me I am glad I finished it, but frankly I was happy to leave Gibson’s future world. 3 out of 5 stars.
