I came to this after reading Richard K. Morgan's Takeshi Kovaks series and finding myself in search of something to follow on.

Somewhere amongst the comments on goodreads, I ran across the recommendation that if one had not yet read Neuromancer, one should run and not walk to get a copy.

I agree. 

What I enjoyed most about this book was how spare it is. Stylistically, Gibson treads lightly. I never found the language dense, but the way he deals detail and imagery is so deft and evocative there's tons there. I loved paying attention as I read to get it all.

I also liked how unabashedly hallucinogenic things get.

I kind of played tag team between the audio book and the print version and had an extended listen to a middle section during a walk I took. But I found that I was pulled to go over the same pages the following day to read them off the page. They were a bunch better the second time around when I could connect more directly with the nuance. Maybe it was just the circumstance.

Anyway, here's to finding terrific recommendations. It worked for me.

This looks like an interesting read. I enjoy sci-fi and futuristic fiction. I will have to check this one out!

Hope you enjoy it. It is fantastic!
Another you might enjoy is 84K by Claire North. Especially the audiobook. The stream of consciousness language is spellbinding.
