If you are searching for the literature that sparked works like Snow Crash and Ready Player One give Neuromancer a shot.
excellent book. I cannot recommend it enough. narration was superb although I found that Dean's baritone is comically inappropriate for soft spoken, female voices.
Having been a William Gibson fan most of my adult life, which isn't saying very much at 23 years old, I had found myself looking to re-read some of his works. I had been apprehensive about downloading this audio book because having listened to the sample I wasn't really impressed with the voice talent they had chosen it didn't seem right for the dark gritty cyberpunk tale. Eventually I got it, and after about 30-45 minutes of listening, I found myself enjoying it much more than I thought I would. So if you are apprehensive about getting this audio novel due to the voice work, I promise you it's a quality and dynamic performance. Good listen.
As my title says I love the book and the story is great. However the voice was good when doing male voices, but the female characters sounded identical and a bit like they're doped up, even if the character isn't high. At first it was annoying but I got used to it. Some of the male character have this same voice too like the character Wage to name one. I would recommend this audio book, but I wouldn't say it is a must listen.
Neuromancer is a classic scifi tail. One of Reddit's top 100 books. The performer did a excellent job bringing the deep richness of the story to life.
An engaging story. I enjoyed the characters, even the not-so-lovable ones. The narration was well done, not overdone.
I have just always loved W. Gibson's writing. His characters are gritty, damaged amd very human. Thougn I appreciate his more recent creations, I must say that the Sprawl Trilogy is still my favorite.
