Incredible! Coolest Sci-Fi ever written.

I have always seen this book listed on best of lists. I thought nothing of it. I thought it would be another old style sci-fi romp in the style of Heinlein or Asimov. It's not. It reads like it was written this year. Now I see where William Gibson got his start, Ne...
I have always seen this book listed on best of lists. I thought nothing of it. I thought it would be another old style sci-fi romp in the style of Heinlein or Asimov. It's not. It reads like it was written this year. Now I see where William Gibson got his start, Neal Stephenson too. This is cyberpunk without computers. It's dark, brooding, and probably the most imaginative piece of fiction I've ever read. Remember that scene at the end of the matrix where he stands up and flexs and the hallways wobbles...remember how cool that was? This entire book is that cool.

iBooks seems to have failed to do any correction of errors from scanning in the digital version. On every page, many words have a space in the middle of them causing the words to break across pages. Certain characters from the book are incorrectly translated to the electronic version (an O with a cross at the bottom turns into a subscript T). I only got through 25 pages before it annoyed me enough to stop reading, at least on the nook. Maybe I'll find it electronically at some other store minus the errors, or just go with the print version.

I think the book itself is probably good (I enjoyed the beginning), but the formatting issues made it too annoying to read, for me.
