Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene - it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term "cyberpunk," for easing the way into the information age and Internet society. Neuromancer's virtual reality has become real. And yet, William Gibson's gritty, sophisticated vision still manages to inspire the minds that lead mankind ever further into the future.

    "classic story, monotone narration"

    This is one of my all time favorite books. I first listened to an audio representation of it by the author himself. I would say that version was at least as good as this one except for the really low sound quality.

    "classic sci fi cyber punk"

    The book that started the matrix, cyberspace, jacking in to computers off. my only problem with the book is sometimes I would get a little lost on who or what was taking place. probably my fault for dealing with traffic.

    "It's generally okey"

    But not more than ok. It's very secondary to Ph. K. Dick, who is truly a master of cyberpunk. If you don't mind that - go ahead.

    "Pre-Metaverse Influence at it's Finest"

    If you are searching for the literature that sparked works like Snow Crash and Ready Player One give Neuromancer a shot.

    "imaginative to the max with unlimited style"

    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.

    "very interesting "

    I suspect this will be a book that when I listen to it again I will enjoy more the second time. very interesting concepts. especially for the time period.

    Story
    "Voice acting slow pull but great finish"

    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.

    "One of my Favorite Books With a Meh Performance"

    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.

    "Science fiction classic"

    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.
