by William Gibson.
Quickie recap: Case is an unemployed "cowboy" (he works in the matrix) who gets involved in a mysterious and dangerous operation .
Quickie review: Oof. I had trouble getting into this one. While I applaud Gibson for not pussy-footing around and just plopping the reader right into this strange world, it was a lot to swallow at once and I struggled to make sense of what I was reading. It was involving and creative, and ultimately enjoyable, although the characters were at times difficult to differentiate and I felt it wasn't very "average reader" friendly.
Quickie recommendation: I didn't hate it. Whether you do or not depends a lot on how intimidated you are by the sci-finess. It's not unbelievable, just a little advanced.
