Read from October 31 to November 14, 2010

Now a classic of science fiction, Neuromancer launched the cyberpunk genre, and gave readers a look into a future that to some extent has become real.

Like most science fiction, some of Gibson's technological inventions are now outdated, but I can imagine in the near future the possibility of humans being able visit virtual worlds while linked physically to computers, and enhance ourselves cybernetically.

The novel follows computer hacker Case and cybernetically enhanced mercenary Molly as they delve into the virtual worlds of an AI, Wintermute. They eventually learn Wintermute is trying to merge with its twin, Neuromancer to create a super AI.
