When I went to see The Beatles in A Hard Day's Night at the age of eight or nine, I could not understand a word they were saying in that first scene on the train. My wasp-eared training had never delt with any forign languange or accent. Slowly but surely the cockney became clearer.
Reading William Gibson is a similar experience as his lyrical, and oftimes rambling prose, takes some grey matter shifting in order to appreciate his wit and geek-world views.
For those that had difficulty with the cyberspace trilogy, try this one. Gibson takes on marketing, consumerism, internet-obsession with half a dozen sub-texts woven throughout.
Shelly Fraiser's audio presentation is outstanding.
