あらすじ・解説

Narrated by actor Jason Flemyng.

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.

Unsuitable Audio

The audio may be unsuitable for commuters or people that can't listen to the book in complete silence.
The narrator tends to mumble a lot which is a great artistic choice and adds to the neon noir atmosphere of the book. The problem is that if you are listening to this book in any other setting than that of a quiet room you will miss most of it. If you commute on a train or in a car for example, this will be very hard to listen to.

I lost track of the story many times and I finally gave up at the 2 hour mark. Maybe I will pick up this title in the future (in print so that I can enjoy it in a quiet room).

Difficult book to get through but good atmosphere

The story: I loved the cyberpunk setting, the grimy atmosphere is brilliant but I frequently found myself confused and struggling to follow that's going on. There are tons of things happening and you're presented with dermadisks here and simstims there and the book does not hold your hand very much in terms of explaining the plot. I was almost tempted to give the story three stars but I'm upgrading it to a four because I guess being dumped into a sci-fi world and left to figure it out yourself is part of the experience. Also, I bet I would get more out of it if I were to do a re-listen sometime down the line.

The narration: The narrator did an ok job, however I would have liked more variety in between the different characters. Sometimes I lost track of which character was speaking which of course might be just me and my attention span's problem. I found the narrator a little boring and dull to listen to. Also, a few times throughout the book it sounds like certain words have been overdubbed. I have no clue why that's necessary but it was distracting the few times it happened.

Really good. But hard to follow

Loved the overall book. The tone and story.
But if you are going to listen to this. It can get a bit confusing towards the end.
So not something to have on as an easy listen in while doing something else.

Of its time

Looked forward to this as a classic of the genre but I struggled to get into it and returned it after half way, having given it a fair crack.
It set a good, visceral atmosphere which put me in mind of classic neon city environments which you'd expect in a cyberpunk genre.
Unfortunately as it went on the word salad of tech words became distracting and slightly cringe-worthy. The dialogue was very much of an 80s action film.
Perhaps it's unfair of me to criticise what must have been revolutionary at the time and perhaps I've been spoiled by subsequent works by the likes of Neal Stephenson.
The narration was a bit "east end" for my liking. Not a bad job, though. Perhaps slightly fast, hence that sensation that the word salad of tech words was just washing over me.

Great narrator... Poor narrative

Every fibre of my being should love this book however, I cannot gel with the story at all just something about it my brain doesn't want to like, which is baffling because the genre is right up my street. Crazy.

Jason Flemyng is great as the narrator and hats off to him.

classic sci-fi novel read by (sorry) complete dill

I own around 3 print copies of Neuromancer, which get loaned out and returned years later by friends. It's not just a classic sci-fi novel, it is the classic novel of what would later evolve into post-Cold War sci-fi. Where writers such as Peter Hamilton and Neal Asher conjure worlds where helpful but naughty AIs run everything, in the Sprawl Trilogy AIs are like fractured ghost echoes of some part of the human psyche. They have enabled humans to become somewhat post-human not through emulation of the AI but through a curious cross-branching.

I am sure that Mr Flemyng is a most competent voice actor, but in this case I think he landed a gig for a book he simply does not understand. The image I constantly found myself with was though Molly and Case were residents of a high-rise council tower in inner-London, somehow down on their luck and deserving sympathy. I mean, what the heck.

The final straw was Armitage suddenly developing (I kid you not) a Mitteleuropa accent. Really. He's American. For real.

Complex

Not going to lie, I had to look up the plot to follow the story. Complex with a lot of technical information. I am into it though…will have to give this another listen
