Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Gibson burst upon the scene in 1984 with Neuromancer, a revolutionary, innovative novel that not only gathered up just about every award in the SF field, but also virtually invented a new sub-genre, which has come to be called ``cyberpunk.'' He followed it with Count Zero , set in the same neon-lit, over-urbanized, polluted, high-tech future; an even better novel, it was necessarily not as breathtakingly unfamiliar and inventive as the first. This new novel completes the series, following the lives of some of the characters from the previous books (Bobby Newmark, Count Zero himself, is here) as well as many new ones, particularly Angie Mitchell, star of simstims and idol of millions, who is intuitively sensitive to cyberspace and the vodun deities that are its manifestations. Told in a gorgeous, highly compressedalmost poeticstyle that requires the reader's attention and intelligence, this very satisfying novel can stand on its own. Major ad/promo; author tour. (Nov.)

From Library Journal:

Able to enter the vast data network known as ``cyberspace'' at will, Sense/Net celebrity Angie Mitchell becomes the center of a bizarre kidnap/murder scheme in which her only allies are the daughter of a Japanese mobster, a cybernetically enhanced assassin, and a computer ``cowboy'' who lives entirely in the confines of cyberspace. Gibson's dazzling, high-tech prose enhances the drama of this sequel to Count Zero . Recommended for sf collections. JC (c) Copyright 2010.
