Strong tea and good books

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”


Neuromancer  - William Gibson Disappointing.

The concepts throughout the book are of course highly influential and spawned the Matrix, cyberspace, and AI influencing humans. It doesn't make up for what was a difficult read that got better towards the end to a point where you could follow what was going on before confusing everything to end the story in what to me was a disappointing and unfulfilled ending.

The first third of the book was difficult to grasp and get into, there was no sense of inserting yourself into the author's world, in the last third, or third quarter, it was a lot better but the sense of not being fulfilled by the story, plot, and characters is very prevalent while reading and the fact it took me so long to finish for a relatively short book indicates my lack of enjoyment.

An interesting novel, with fantastic concepts for its time, but not a great literary triumph.
