This early William Gibson neopunk classic is a whirlwind of technology and violence. Most of the storyline is enacted through character dialogue, complete with shotgun in hand. Many of the characters have bio-implants for datachips, so they can hold more memory, like in Johnny Neumonic. They fly around in hover-crafts and scrap over intellectual property at the corporate level. The plot revolves around a girl who can connect to the cyberspace maxtrix, without using any hardware, only using her own mind and body. Meanwhile corporate bounty hunters, such as Kid Africa, are hunting her down, since she controls the future. Japanese yakuza are also on the hunt. This was an early novel from Gibson. It is such a quick read that I must read it again, since the pace was so fast. The book was far ahead of its time, in terms of discussing the matrix and multiple dimensions (which the ending revolves around).
