Neuromancer

This is for the novel Neuromancer, by William Gibson.

 

When I read the book the first time, I enjoyed it immensely though I didn't remember as much as I thought I did. One thing to note, this book may not be for you if you don't like slow reads. I tend to prefer slower reads. However in a way it makes sense due to the way the sentences are constructed.

 

I would almost describe Neuromancer as having a decompressed feel to it within the sentences. For anyone who has read Japanese manga in particular, you'll notice per issue nothing much really happens, but when read as a volume the book has more of a cinematic feel to it.

 

So speaking as a reader of prose, its similar but textually speaking. Nothing much really happens per chapter, but the book keeps enough of a mystery in order to get to ask what happens next. For someone who is use to reading Young Adult (I'm not), this ends up feeling less quickly paced.

 

Check this book out if you like mystery.

 

See you in the dream matrix.
