Neuromancer audiobook- A cyberpunk, science fiction masterpiece
Neuromancer audiobook‘s plot: The Matrix is a world inside a world, a global consensus-hallucination that represents every byte of data in cyberspace… Dorsett, Henry Case was the best data thief in the industry until his nervous system was wrecked by disgruntled former workers. However, a new and extremely strange employer has recruited him for a last-ditch run. The target: an unfathomably powerful artificial intelligence circling the Earth for the nefarious Tessier-Ashpool corporate clan. Case goes on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction, riding shotgun with a dead guy and Molly, a mirror-eyed street-samurai, to guard his back.
Neuromancer, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, was the first fully realized glimpse of humanity’s digital future—a startling vision that has challenged our assumptions about technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.
It is an exciting ride. If you enjoy Philip K. Dick’s work and have ever wondered what would happen if you stretched his vision into the not-too-distant future, if you enjoy Bladerunner or The Matrix… Even if you enjoy all of the films and novels that have attempted to be any of the above, you will enjoy Neuromancer audiobook.
Neuromancer audiobook has been described as the defining work of the cyberpunk subgenre. Gibson draws inspiration from Escape from New York, Anthony Burgess, and Phillip K. Dick, among others, but then takes it to a whole new level. It is even possible to argue that Gibson, who strongly impacted the makers of The Matrix, is a bridge between the earlier post-modernist dystopian science fiction of the 1960s and the more modern, computer-driven, angst-ridden world weariness that has represented artists since the 1980s.
If Neuromancer audiobook were music, it would be a wall of sound, a cacophony of noise that appears chaotic at first but quickly absorbs the listener, finding and differentiating many melodies and motifs within the complicated score. Case and Molly have evolved into archetypes, the anti-hero and the tech femme fatale. Wintermute and Neuromancer are the twin godfathers of the Matrix and all related fiction.
Neuromancer audiobook didn’t preach to the inventors of the new, new thing; it wasn’t even about technology…at least not in the instructional manual, code-writing sense. William Gibson was more techno-stupid than techno-proficient, and his vision of the future was that of an artist rather than an engineer. Indeed, the few places where Gibson had any comprehension of what he was writing have become the most outdated.
