Neuromancer ~ William Gibson


A head-trip of hallucinations
Found myself just reading words

I will admit I fretted over my rating.  What if I just wasn't smart enough to get it?  What if I should read it again to decipher it better?  Aren't I geeky enough? What is my problem??

But basically, it just wasn't me.  Its convoluted mind games, its "and then I woke up" feel, its virtual unreality ... just wasn't me.  To each his own.  Basically I found it boring, hard to follow, and, at times, gibberish and phantasmagoria.  The plot and characters were lost in the vagaries of cyberspace.
