    I simply disliked Neuromancer. I found its writing style obscure and its ideas fuzzy. I think it must be more admired for its accurate prophecies about technology than its literary qualities.

    Review here is for Hyperion, while the title is for Neuromancer?
    Please rectify this.

    IMHO, this is best sci-fi novel ever. This book completely turned the genre on its head and proved that sci-fi could be gritty character studies, gripping adventure, and heady ideas all in one.
