SPECIAL 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION —THE MOST IMPORTANT AND INFLUENTIAL SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL OF THE PAST TWO DECADES

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.

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.
