Praise for Neuromancer
“Freshly imagined, compellingly detailed, and chilling in its implications.”—The New York Times
“Kaleidoscopic, picaresque, flashy, decadent...an amazing virtuoso performance.”—The Washington Post
“Science fiction of exceptional texture and vision...Gibson opens up a new genre, with a finely crafted grittiness.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Epic in scale...shimmers like chrome in a desert sun.”—The Wall Street Journal
“A revolutionary novel.”—Publishers Weekly
“In with the ruthless violence, the hyperreality, the betrayal and death, is an unquenchable love of language. Gibson has that in common with Le Guin and with J. G. Ballard. Neuromancer sings to us as a collage of voices, a mixed chorus, some trustworthy and others malicious, some piped through masks.”—James Gleick
“Streetwise SF... one of the most unusual and involving narratives to be read in many an artificially induced blue moon.”—London Times
“Unforgettable...the richness of Gibson’s world is incredible.”—Chicago Sun-Times

The story in one word is about "completion" and as you read, you can get the sense that pieces are moving into place in order to facilitate some grand event. Gibson however, masterfully prevents you from seeing the whole picture. Because no-one likes a plot that they can solve halfway through a book (regardless of how well it's written). Sure, reading it in the 2000s, one would not be surprised to see the usual elements of a Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk plot, but considering the book was written in 1984, the reader is witnessing the birth of some of the tropes of the genre, indeed the birth of the genre itself.
Regardless of how well-read one is in the genre of Cyberpunk, I believe Neuromancer shall still tax your imagination and if nothing else, it will earn and/or demand from you the respect it deserves as the originator of the cyberpunk genre.
P.S.: I highly recommend acquiring the Penguin Galaxy edition because the introduction given by Neil Gaiman about this book really sets the tone and mood for the upcoming experience.
However, it's not easy to read. I usually read after lunch or dinner, and I don't remember a single time I could continue reading for more than 40-45 min without feeling like I was losing the plot.
I guess I'll have to read it again to appreciate it more. Readers of sci-fi will love this book, but I don't think it'll be easy to read or digest.
The Matrix , The BladeRunner , and so many other cyberpunks has been inspired by this and even the famous Cyberpunk 2013 board game whose designer is now in development of an open world Console and PC game with CD Projekt Red in Poland and the game is set to release in 2019 (check these developers out if you're a gamer too*(just search amazon for The Witcher 3 PS4, their previous game)like me).
Right now haven't read it yet and is waiting patiently for the book to get delivered.
