Gridrunner is a gritty and fairly awesome cyberpunk novel that I've read several times. It was one of the first books I read simply for the joy of it, and I've had a soft spot for it ever since.

Boy meets girl, girl meets boy, all in cyberspace and PUFF love story is going on....that is nearly the best I can say about this book. It was too "flat" and unbelieving for my taste, although the plot is fairly standard okay....definitely not better than that.
