Case was the sharpest data thief in the matrix--until he crossed the wrong people and they crippled his nervous system, banishing him from cyberspace. Now a mysterious new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run at an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, a mirror-eyed street samurai, to watch his back, Case is ready for the adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction. Neuromancer was the first fully realized glimpse of humankind's digital future--a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.… (mer)

The reviewer who called this "low life meets high tech" was exactly on point: think 'Blade Runner' and you'll be prepared for the atmosphere. Drug use is rampant, everyone's hiding a gun under their desk or a weapon up their sleeve. Case is a drug addict with nothing left to live for, numb to the world. An unsought opportunity knocks and suddenly he finds himself reconnected to the online world, embroiled in some kind of scheme the details of which are kept hidden from him. Something I appreciate, he's always asking the right people the right questions (unlike certain other maddening characters in certain other frustrating novels). He always wants to know the score, and he's very good at puzzling out what's happening in the most confusing moments. It lends credibility to his in-story reputation.

In this 1984 novel, Gibson imagines an internet that we didn't get, one that is purely virtual with access only for the technically inclined. It's not a career for the faint of heart. Gibson's firewall equivalents have the ability to fry your brain if you get too close, no messing around. His descriptions of hacking in a virtual world are very visual-oriented, ready to film. I thought I'd have to be more forgiving in light of its age, but I only smirked once when I was meant to be impressed by several megabytes of data.

Things that look like clichés are actually not - remembering again, this was 1984. Immortality through virtuality, following the music back, AIs striving for freedom, other little moments that seem like echoes of other stories. This preceded those stories, or at least the ones these moments recalled to mind for me. In my head, Gibson's "Neuromancer", Stephenson's "Snow Crash" and Cline's "Ready Player One" form a kind of trilogy (Tad Williams' Otherland riding shotgun), depicting a vision of the internet before it was, a vision of the internet as it might become, and a vision of its ultimate limitations now that we can see a bit more clearly from here. This is still a fine start to that sequence. ( )

Fantastic book, the seminal root of popular cyberspace fiction. There is a lot of terminology that you will have to pick up and the end of the book feels a little bit psychodelic, so I found it a more concentrated read than average. I wouldn't stop mid-book for too long either, otherwise you are liable to come back and wonder what the hell is going on. I loved it, but I could understand why it may not be everyone's cup of tea.

A new vocabulary for a transformed reality: the deeply influential cyberpunk classic, 30 years on from its original publication
tillagd av dClauzel | ändraThe Guardian, John Mullan (Nov 7, 2014)
 
I have to apologize for failing to review William Gibson's "Neuromancer" when it appeared last year. I was led to believe I had done Mr. Gibson an injustice when this novel (the author's first) won both of the important 1984 best-of-the-year awards in science fiction: the Nebula and the Hugo. Now that I have read the book, I would like to cast a belated ballot for Mr. Gibson.

Ovo je roman koji je započeo kiberpank revoluciju, prva knjiga koja je dobila sveto trojstvo nagrada u žanru naučne fantastike - Hugo, Nebula i Filip K. Dik.

Sa Neuromantom, Vilijem Gibson je predstavio svetu kiberprostor i naučna fantastika više nikada nije bila ista. Gibson je svojim romanom najavio sve ono što je došlo godinama kasnije, Internet revoluciju, Matriks filmska trilogiju i neverovatan razvoj informatičkih tehnologija. Kejs je najbolji kompjuterski kauboj koji krstari informatičkim supermagistralama, povezujući svoju svest sa softverom u kiberprostoru, krećući se kroz obilje podataka, pronalazeći tajne informacije za onoga ko može da plati njegove usluge. Kada prevari pogrešne ljude, oni mu se svete na užasan način, uništavajući njegov nervni sistem, mikron po mikron. Proteran iz kiberprostora i zarobljen u svom otupelom telu, Kejs je osuđen na smrt u tehnološkom podzemlju, sve dok ga jednog dana ne angažuju misteriozni poslodavci. Oni mu nude drugu priliku i potpuno izlečenje. Jedini uslov je da prodre u matricu, neverovatno moćnu veštačku inteligenciju kojom upravlja poslovni klan Tezje-Ešpul.

See, those things, they can work real hard, buy themselves time to write cookbooks or whatever, but the minute, I mean the nanosecond, that one starts figuring out ways to make itself smarter, Turing'll wipe it. Nobody trusts those fuckers, you know that. Every AI ever built has an electromagnetic shotgun wired to its forehead.
I never did like to do anything simple when I could do it ass-backwards.
Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts. … A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding.
"To call up a demon you must learn its name. Men dreamed that, once, but now it is real in another way. You know that, Case. Your business is to learn the names of programs, the long formal names, names the owners seek to conceal. True names ...." [AI Neuromancer to Case, p243]
