Euromante' y preanuncian el controvertido movimiento estético eléctrico tecnológico llamado más tarde el movimiento cyberpun I think this is the collection where I finally understood the cyberpunk of William Gibson despite having read four of his novelsFor me he is all about the mileau the crafting of the dystopian world that his stories exist in and his characters evolve from is his primary skill everything that comes evolves from there Not to doubt his acknowedged talent as an ideas manI was particularly impressed with New Rose Hotel his style of narration called to mind Chris Markers La Jetee and Wong Kar Wai s Chungking Express the overall feel of the piece settles on melancholy without even attempting to play with your emotions or adrenaline Johnny Mnemonic is a completely different proposition to the movie I m not even sure why that was allowed to happen which was a great surpriseSome of the stories are a bit clunky and the better ones are co written with somebody else but even so this would work as a great introduction to the world of Cyberpunk much so than jumping straight in to Neuromancer
