Finished the book in 2 days straight! And wow!

I had read Neuromancer about 12 years ago. Didn't get a lot of that - it flew over my head then. In those days I had a C=64 and played Neuromancer (the game) on it and fell in love with it.

As I was reading Count Zero - it all flashed back in front of my eyes: Ono-Sendai decks - AI, ICE, cowboys, angels, matrix, Ashpool, Gentlemen Loser, Chiba, Maas Bios.... list goes on!!

The book is KICK ASS!! :) :) :)

Gibson's vocabulary is so picturesque that it strikes you in the face with such amazing imagery - that you feel you are there. I mean, its simply amazing the way he can describe 5 parts of the world in 1 sentence and make it a profound statement with it too. Simply amazing! You can take a single paragraph - and see that he moves with unlimited imagery from one sentence to another. Mind candy. :)

Another thing is pace: Tense - and super-fast! Not a single line out of place or redundent.

A master writer - whom I now am able to understand - gets better with time - and understanding. Gibson throws in a lot of references he has established from his previous writings - so it may confuse a novice reader at first.

Salutes to Gibson. May he keep writing for many many years to come.

This book is breathtaking!

I've just read the last page and I just had to wright this down.

read it! read it! read it! after you've read Neuromancer of course. If you like sci-fi this is the writer for you, he is even better than Arthur C Clarke and Philip K Dick.
