Neuromancer

Neuromancer by William Gibson (Ace, 1984); audiobook read by Jeff Harding (Bolinda, 2014) Though ground-breaking, Neuromancer in retrospect seems more a writers’ guide for cyberpunk than a fully-fledged work, its constituent parts being 5% plot, 35% characterisation and 60% overlay. Appreciation of the audiobook will depend largely on one’s tolerance for Harding’s hardboiled noir drawl.
