I created an account just to comment on this to say… DON’T read Neuromancer.
I thought it was fate because in a conversation with a group that I am about to start an ICRPG game with that I had today, I was telling them how much I love Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, but despise Neuromancer, I got through it. But I put that book down and picked it back up like four times over the course of a year before I did. I love cyberpunk, but Neuromancer is just such a trudge to get through.
Even Abodi above mentions how tough the writing style is. That is putting it lightly.
That said, if you love verbose over description the leads into arguably relevant tangents… maybe it’s the book for you. There is obviously a lot of fans for that style of writing, but I feel like it just doesn’t hold up to the modern expectation of story telling.
*Akira is okay if not showing of it’s age but a classic, Appleseed is good too - the 2004 movie is worth a watch for the music alone, which is lit - I watched it when it came out and still listen to that soundtrack on the regular.
