Undeniably a landmark. Gibson is really flexing his muscles, at times a bit too hard, but I love the bits of Burroughs sprinkled throughout.

The team isn't actually very good, is it? Molly gets her leg broken minutes into their first caper, Armitage is psychotic, Riviera is evil and is working at cross purposes with the team. Is Case actually good? Can we even know? I am questioning Wintermute's judgement.

Fantastic collection of (mostly) cyberpunk from one of the masters of the genre. You can really see Gibson developing a lot of the foundations of the genre here in a variety of different stories. Individual story ratings below.

Johnny Mnemonic: 4/5

The Gernsback Continuum: 2/5

Fragments of a Hologram Rose: 3.5/5

The Belonging Kind: 3/5

Hinterlands: 5/5

Red Star, Winter Orbit: 5/5

New Rose Hotel: 4/5

The Winter Market: 4/5

Dogfight: 5/5

Burning Chrome: 4.5/5

Slow to get started, and with anti-climactic ending, it's not Gibson's best for sure. He can get the adrenaline going and pique your curiosity, and I really enjoyed character Tito's daemon oddities, but somehow the hint of some kind of strange new cyber technology didn't quite live up to expectations or seem to involve more than tracking a shipping container full of money, which itself seemed to be unimportant in the great scheme of things. What were these characters all so worked up about? In the end it was hard to tell, or to care.… (mais)
