Here is the novel that started it all, launching the cyberpunk generation, and the first novel to win the holy trinity of science fiction: the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award and the Philip K. Dick Award. With Neuromancer, William Gibson introduced the world to cyberspace--and science fiction has never been the same.
Case was the hottest computer cowboy cruising the information superhighway--jacking his consciousness into cyberspace, soaring through tactile lattices of data and logic, rustling encoded secrets for anyone with the money to buy his skills. Then he double-crossed the wrong people, who caught up with him in a big way--and burned the talent out of his brain, micron by micron. Banished from cyberspace, trapped in the meat of his physical body, Case courted death in the high-tech underworld. Until a shadowy conspiracy offered him a second chance--and a cure--for a price.... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“Freshly imagined, compellingly detailed, and chilling in its implications.”—The New York Times

“Unforgettable...The richness of Gibson's world is incredible.”—Chicago Sun-Times
“Here is an entirely new world, intense as an electric shock. William Gibson's prose, astonishing in its clarity and skill, becomes high-tech electric poetry...An enthralling adventure story, as brilliant and coherent as a laser. This is why science fiction was invented!”—Bruce Sterling

Neuromancer does the first, and doesn't bother with the second.
By far the most amazing thing about Neuromancer is the writing style. Gibson loves to use slang and technical terms, and the book just expects you to know them, or be able to figure it out quickly. This might not be for everyone, since it can make the story hard to follow, but I really liked it.
The story starts with the main character Case who is in Chiba and hangs around. He used to be plugged in the matrix all the time, but he made a mistake and they removed his implants (and purpose of living). So he just hangs out, but encounters some strange people who can help him to get connected again. He'll just have to... well... I won't give away what will all happen.
The book is full of wonderful science fiction. A significant amount plays in cyberspace with viruses, ROMs and AI filling the landscape. The real life plays in futuristic places described in a wonderful amount of details, implants, action, drugs and sex. The stories mysteries gradually unfold over the book and is full of surprises and twists.
Recommended for lovers of science fiction.
