Maxim Jakubowski's view...

Nearly a quarter of a century after its initial appearance, Gibson’s groundbreaking cyberpunk debut has lost none of its modernity and fascination. Extrapolating the world of the internet and video games culture, an unforgettable vision of a future where data, sprawling cities, artificial intelligences and multi corporations fight an invisible war, as seen through the buccaneering computer jockeys who surf its interfaces.

If you like William Gibson you might also like to read books by Sean Cregan, Chuck Palahniuk and Philip K Dick.
