Gibson's debut novel is the book that forever changed science fiction with a visionary style that forged the cyberpunk genre. With narrator Robertson Dean at the helm, this story of a washed-out computer hacker who is hired to do the unthinkable is reborn. Dean's heavy tone brings with it a weight that lifts the tale to new heights. As Henry Dorsett Case, Dean becomes a desperate and suicidal addict who will do anything to restore his central nervous system. Dean's ability to subtly shift his tone and conjure believable accents is particularly valuable in the realization of the story. The result is a listening experience that bears all the weight of a modern techno-thriller with all the excitement of an age-old adventure tale. L.B.
