Unsure. I have to admit that reading this book I often felt a little lost as to what was happening and why, but just carried on to enjoy the ride.

Reading a book that so significantly influenced modern cinema such as The Matrix and the like, it's interesting to read the descriptions of movement in and out of the matrix (little-m).

I'm also not entirely sure how the book ended, and without the final chapter which tidied up a few things, I would have been rather lost and confused!!!

Good ride. Not sure I'm too bothered about the trilogy, but I would try another William Gibson book in future.

Stuart Langridge I found Count Zero to be a better book than Neuromancer; the "trilogy" is all sorta related, but they're all standalones. (And Mona Lisa Overdrive is the worst of the three, in my opinion.) So if you find yourself at a loss, picking up Count Zero is I would say worth it.
