Waterstones Says

The novel that kickstarted the cyberpunk movement, Gibson’s glimpse of a tech-drenched future dominated by the sinister Matrix has proved enormously influential. 

The book that defined the cyberpunk movement, inspiring everything from The Matrix to Cyberpunk 2077.

The sky above the port was the colour of television, tuned to a dead channel.


William Gibson revolutionised science fiction in his 1984 debut Neuromancer. The writer who gave us the matrix and coined the term 'cyberspace' produced a first novel that won the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, and lit the fuse on the Cyberpunk movement.

More than three decades later, Gibson's text is as stylish as ever, his noir narrative still glitters like chrome in the shadows and his depictions of the rise and abuse of corporate power look more prescient every day. Part thriller, part warning, Neuromancer is a timeless classic of modern SF and one of the 20th century's most potent and compelling visions of the future.

Readers are hooked on Neuromancer:

'Wow. This is a wild ride. If you liked Philip K. Dick's writing . . . if you liked Bladerunner, if you liked The Matrix . . . you will love Neuromancer' Goodreads reviewer,

'Like nothing I have read before . . . Gibson's writing is poetry, not jargon . . . [it's] slick and jagged like a serrated knife . . . Yeah I am a big, big fan . . . a unique, important and truly amazing reading experience' Goodreads reviewer,

'Basically a futuristic crime caper. The main character is Case, a burnt-out hacker, a cyberthief . . . Challenging? Yes. But it's electrifying once you get it . . . Neuromancer is in me like a teabag, flavouring my life, and I can't imagine what it would be like if I hadn't pressed on' Goodreads reviewer,

'For me it was a sci fi thriller, two of my favourite genres rolled into one. I was grabbed immediately by the characters of Cole and Molly - especially Molly with her attitude, her mirror eyes and the blades under her fingernails . . . This is a very visual book and it was easy to start choosing who would play the roles in a movie' Goodreads reviewer,

Why? You need to concentrate! Writing this as I approach the end of the book, but feel it's worth reviewing anyway.
