what does everyone think of William Gibson's classic cyberpunk novels / stories, are they any good?
>>2609
He went from anarkiddie to liberal and you could trace it in his novels.
>>2611
well which ones are the good ones, neuromancer?
I read Neuromancer years ago and from what I remember it was pretty good but it suffers from what many genre-setting works do in that it now seems pretty cliche and standard in retrospect
>>2612
neuromancer was pretty ok, but he wasn't a good writer yet and it's hard to keep up with the pacing of the novel. Ideas are interesting but the story sucks. It's literally just a cyberpunk heist story. I liked idoru better. But you could tell it was then when his political stances were starting to soften up to liberalism
>>2617
>>2613
What about his earlier work like Burning Chrome
>>2630
Haven't read it.when it comes to cyberpoonk I liked " when gravity falls" which is about a world where traps are the norm and the west has declined to the point of being comparable to the current Middle East, and the story is set in the Middle east anyway . The main characters love interest is qute trap and they Fucc a lot. There's also lengthy descriptions of her boipuccy. There's also snowcrash which I really liked. Gibson started the cyberpunk movement but was never the best cyberpunk writer imo
