LITERATURE: Next Up – William Gibson’s Neuromancer

Evidently I can't copy and paste Amazon's book image (which only means that they don't get the link back to them either) but after running through some of my choices, I've pulled this out and read the first couple of pages.

This is very different from what I've been reading lately, and yet my reading roots are in horror and sci fi so it'll be like visiting an old friend. The opening scene, oddly enough, reminds me of A Clockwork Orange in the oddity of the language, the words and thus the characters that seem alien to us.

Ratz was tending bar, his prosthetic arm jerking monotonously as he filled a tray of glasses with draft Kirin. He saw Case and smiled, his teeth a webwork of East European steel and brown decay.

Should be interesting.
