it was amazing
bookshelves: all-time-favorites, violent, weird, gritty, sci-fi-fantasy, fiction, utopia-dystopia

A brilliantly constructed fictional world. The book is a wild flash of ideas, but in my opinion no individual idea is as important as the general concept of the world itself, a simultaneously connected and disconnected, burned out, gritty place, a sort of mixed mechanical-organic experimental mistake of a creature, writhing half-alive on the operating table. A little dated now, as sci-fis tend to get, but more surprising is the many ways in which it is not dated. Brought the word "cyberspace," Gibson's invention, into our language.
