Hello, friends! It’s time for another book review! Hooray! Today we’re talking about The Neuromancer by William Gibson. I just recently read this book in January of this year after having it on my to read list for a solid decade. It might have been longer, actually, because I remember buying my copy at Borders when I was in high school. Let’s all have a moment of silence for the loss of the beloved Borders.
I have been going back and forth about whether or not to write this blog. Then, once I decided I would write it, I chickened out about posting it a little bit. Not because I care if I piss people off, but because I don’t want to seem… pretentious? Full of it? I don’t know.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
eBooks got pretty big a few years ago, and now everyone is cashing in their 2 cents about whether the physical or digital book is better. Some swear by the ease and speed of eBooks, while some can’t lose the spark of nostalgia and joy they get from holding a story in their hand. Clearly you haven’t read enough blogs just like this one, so here’s my take on the whole thing.
Whoopdie doo time for another book review. That wasn’t as sarcastic as it sounded, I just thought I would be whimsical and start with a rhyme. You know what, let’s just forget that first sentence even happened.
