Neuromancer is a 1984 science fiction novel by American-Canadian writer William Gibson. Considered one of the earliest and best-known works in the cyberpunk genre, it is the only novel to win the Nebula Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, and the Hugo Award. It was Gibson's debut novel and the beginning of the Sprawl trilogy. Set in the future, the novel follows Henry Case, a washed-up hacker hired for one last job, which brings him in contact with a powerful artificial intelligence.

Uno de los libros que me ha resultado más difícil de comentar/calificar... Por un lado, me parece admirable la forma en que Gibson se adelanta a su tiempo de maneras que muy pocos se atrevieron y muchos menos consiguieron convertir casi en "profecías". Por otro lado, la narrativa es difícil de seguir... No por compleja, quizás es un asunto de gusto personal o del momento de mi vida en que lo leí, pero me costó conectar emocionalmente con los personajes. Me lo apunto como un libro al que le debo una segunda lectura, con una disposición diferente de mi parte.

Review of 'Neuromancer (Remembering Tomorrow)' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

I thought I'd read this before, but remember nothing. Which is surprising, because it was really freak'n cool. From the very first line, it's all so dang evocative. I had to re-read so much of it to savour each description. But also had to re-read a lot because I only read a page or two at a time, and I got lost a lot returning to it, because everything moved so fast. But hot dang, I see why it's a classic.
