Am Reading: Neuromancer

I had to take a break from Atlas Shrugged. The story is fantastic, but the constant waves of despair were taking a toll.

I tried On the Road for a bit. Kerouac left me speaking in a smooth jazz-cat rhythm for a few days, but the words alone were not enough to hold me captive. I want the rich, complex story that I can dissolve into.

I re-read an old favorite: Island of the Blue Dolphins.

And now, another classic that I missed along the way: Neuromancer. The cyberpunk original created a vocabulary that helped us see the world in a new way: cyberspace, the Matrix…

I’m taking notes on the complex future world-building. Gibson pulled this off beautifully. I’m filing this one as “inspiration of effective techno world building for my novel.”
