Neuromancer by William Gibson

Neuromancer by William Gibson is a cyberpunk classic. I read it so I could get lots of shelves on my Goodreads Shelf-a-Thon Challenge. That last sentence probable doesn’t make sense to most of you. That’s okay. It shouldn’t. Suffice it to say that I asked my husband for a sci-fi book and this is what he recommended.

I don’t normally read sci-fi because I don’t understand all the words. Not understanding words frustrates me. In this case, I made up definitions for words I didn’t know and just kept going. And I really, honestly thought I was keeping up with what was going on. I thought I had a good handle on who all the characters were. And then it all came crashing down around me.

And I still sort of think I understand what happened, sort of. I just don’t understand why. I don’t understand why this AI program decided to destroy this whack job Riviera and why it had to be such a production to do it. Can anybody help me out here?
