Spent the last couple of days reading Count Zero then Mona Lisa Overdrive, because I suddenly remembered that Neuromancer, which I read a couple of times ages ago, is the first book of a trilogy.

It’s nearly 40 year old, but the late capitalism vibe is so strong that it still feels painfully modern.

I’m now starting to read Virtual Light… I guess it’s William Gibson marathon time.



@ice I think that Neuromancer is groundbreaking but the other two books are narratively better.

I love all of his stuff though :)

@grimmware Yeah, I agree, I have a rather chaotic memory of Neuromancer, and the two others felt more structured, with a strict rotation of the characters perspectives until they all meet in the end.

@ice that is an incredibly succinct way of putting it.
