    A true Sci-fi Master

    Loved it. Can't say a bad word. Gets deeper and more prophetic with each novel. Please keep writing.

    Somewhat disappointing for a master like Gibson

    Although William Gibson is an accomplished science fiction writer (you may or may not know that his seminal debut Neuromancer coined the term 'cyberspace'), this book doesn't do his talents justice. The plot revolves around a bicycle messenger who steals what she assumes to be an ordinary pair of glasses at a party, only to find that she got a lot more than she bargained for. The story is populated by edgy characters, and Gibsons' poetic prose breathes real life into the world he has created (a near-future version of California), but the plot moved slowly and failed to draw me in. This book is the first of a trilogy that includes Idoru and All Tomorrow's Parties, so hopefully the story picks up in the next volume.

    abriged, but great

    This is the best book on tape i ever heard. I had allready read the print book and was wary of the casset, but Peter Weller (Robo Cop) read it fabulously. The voices he chose for the characters were distinct and fit well with what i had imagened. Its a classic Gibson story and conbined the cyber punk with a slightly different perspective very well (it's told mainly from the pov of non-hackers).
