in books, the game of life

Incidentally, no new books have been posted to the sidebar as I am re-reading William Gibson’s Neuromancer after almost two decades. The first time around, I was fresh out of high school and well-traveled for my age, so the book spoke to the cosmopolitan idealist in me but was pretty opaque in terms of references simply owing to the fact that I, for lack of a better phrase, hadn’t done the time. The weariness, grit, human psychology and inhuman behavior are a lot more palpable now. Case – interesting character, considering his own relative youth. Funny thing is I read a good chunk of the book while stuck in the Atlanta airport due to an airline snafu, which led me to wonder if Gibson would have written Neuromancer differently had he seen the “future” that are ‘Lanta and the Sprawl in 2013.
