William Gibson – Neuromancer (Sprawl #1) (audiobook)

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

The Matrix is a world within the world, a global consensus- hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace…

Case had been the sharpest data-thief in the business, until vengeful former employers crippled his nervous system. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister Tessier-Ashpool business clan. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the century’s most potent visions of the future.

Mana recenzija/My review

Keiss kādreiz bija super labs datu zaglis, bet tagad ir prasts narkotiku atkarīgais ar sabeigtu veselību. Kad rodas negaidīts piedāvājums atgūt gan agrāka prasmi, gan veselību, bez liekiem jautājumiem, protams, piedāvājums ir jāpieņem.

Virtuālā pasaule Matrix nepārliecināja un ne ar ko īpašu neizcēlās. Katrā ziņā jāatzīst autora izdoma par kiberpasauli laikā, kad internets, virtuālā vide u.c. nebija nekāda ikdiena. Stāsts un notikumi šķita saraustīti un diemžēl norises vietas nespēja nekādīgi līdzēt.

Keisa kā zagļa un hakera nolīgšana un veicamās zādzības šķita pavisam muļķīgas. Arī citi tēli kā Mollija neradīja ticamību, ka tāds tēls varētu eksistēt; un mākslīgie intelekti Wintermute un (kā grāmatas nosaukums) Neuromancer vispār ārpus rāmjiem. Nerūpēja neviens no minētājiem.

Iespējams kaut kad vēlāk varētu dot otru iespēju, kas ir apšaubāmi, bet pēc pirmās – galīgi garām.

                                                                                                                                           

Henry Dorsett Case once was a brilliant data-thief but is simply an addict with health that saying lightly isn’t good. When the unexpected offer to regain all that and more without thinking too long he agrees.

The virtual world Matrix didn’t convince me and wasn’t anything special. Certainly you have recognize the author’s imagination about cyberspace before the internet and online world was our daily life. The story and action seemed jerky, unfortunately the setting didn’t help.

Case as a thief and hacker and robberies he made were just silly. Other characters like Molly were not believable and imaginable that they could exist; and AIs Wintermute and (as the title) Neuromancer were out any normal boundary. Didn’t care for any of them.

Maybe someday I might give this book another chance (which is unlikely), but after the first time – a big miss for me.
