Count Zero is a rustbelt data-hustler totally unprepared for what comes his way when the designer's defection triggers war in cyberspace. With voodoo gods in the Net and angels in the software, he can only hope that the megacorps and the super-rich have their virtual hands too full to notice the amateur hacker with the black market kit trying desperately to stay 4/5(K).

‎ A stylish, street smart, frighteningly probable parable of the future from the visionary, New York Times bestselling author of Neuromancer and Agency. A corporate mercenary wakes in a reconstructed body, a beautiful woman by /5(). The Sprawl trilogy (also known as the Neuromancer, Cyberspace, or Matrix trilogy) is William Gibson's first set of novels, composed of Neuromancer (), Count Zero (), and Mona Lisa Overdrive ().Author: William Gibson.

Less heavy that NEUROMANCER, the book has definite foundations in cyberpunk, but will probably appeal to a much wider audience.

Slightly slow in beginning, but accelerating to a heart-pounding finish, COUNT ZERO is a book that should be read by Gibson fans, cyberpunk fans, and anyone who enjoyed NEUROMANCER.5/5(4). Editions for Count Zero: (Paperback published in ), (Kindle Edition), (Mass Market Paperback published in ), X (Pa.

Count Zero Quotes Showing of 48 “And, for an instant, she stared directly into those soft blue eyes and knew, with an instinctive mammalian certainty, that the exceedingly rich were no longer even remotely human.”.

“Signature smell of the Sprawl, a rich amalgam of stale subway exhalations, ancient soot, and the carcinogenic tang of fresh plastics, all of it shot through with the carbon edge of illicit fossil fuels.” The follow up to Neuromancer, Count Zero is another cyberpunk classic that revisits many themes of his previous book/5.

Count Zero is number two in the series that picks up after Neuromancer, the book which started it all for Gibson and which I read first. Set in the Sprawl – a.k.a. the Boston-Atlanta Metropolitan Axis (or BAMA) – this cyberpunk story deals with themes familiar to classic Gibson fans.

Overall, I liked Count Zero. I may have liked Neuromancer better, but that doesn’t mean Count Zero is a bad book. It’s just, well, different. What I’ve liked about both of the Gibson books that I’ve read is their complexity and unique writing style. Gibson’s novels don’t follow the normal, formulaic plot lines I see in most books I.Count Zero Turner, corporate mercenary, wakes in a reconstructed body, a beautiful woman by his side.

Then Hosaka Corporation reactivates him for a mission more dangerous than the one he's recovering from: Maas-Neotek's chief of R&D is defecting.5/5(3). Gibson seems to me as though he struggled with Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive.

Neuromancer is the best of the three and I think he had a hard time trying to outdo himself or he became his own worse enemy, or perhaps he just couldn't match his debut. The following books, while quite good, descend in quality and tread a lot of the same territory.
