Inhaltsangabe

Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene - it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term "cyberpunk," for easing the way into the information age and Internet society. Neuromancer's virtual reality has become real. And yet, William Gibson's gritty, sophisticated vision still manages to inspire the minds that lead mankind ever further into the future.

A classic, sure, but ...

The perhaps counterintuitive bit first: I loved the book, and as many critics have said before, it is one of the few examples where a writer's imagination perfectly anticipated the real world's turn of events. As ordinary as the "cyberspace" may seem from a 2018 point of view, its anticipation in the early 1980s is brilliant. And the book certainly is written excellently.

And that is the crux: the BOOK deserves all the praise. As an audio book aficionado, I normally prefer a good audio book to its paper-based version - except in this case. Gibson's writing is so dense, so authentic, the world he paints so perfectly self-contained, that I as a listener often lost track of the characters, their storylines, the nuances of their backstories and the overall plot. While not an issue in the book, where you can just go back and forth, this being thrown into the very deep end is quite a challenge for the listener. In this one instance, I would have preferred to read the book rather than listen to it.

Matter are made slightly worse by a rather common trouble many producers come across: lack of pauses between sections and chapters often makes it difficult to realize where one is in the narration.

On a personal note: I would prefer it if the narrators would not try and imitate dialects. Not only does it not work, but it is also highly disturbing.

All in all: A great book, no question, but I would recommend reading this one rather than listening to it.

Autor top, Sprecher überzeugt nicht

Gibsons Sprache und Erzählkunst ist großartig, nur leider ist der Sprecher viel zu monoton und die Stimmlage ist Geschmackssache. Das Hörbuch im Original ist aufgrund der unglaublich plastischen Beschreibungen ein Vergnügen und um Längen besser, als die (gute) deutsche Übersetzung. Als Sprecher wünsche ich mir hier Rupert Degas, der dem Text sicher gerecht werden würde.
