NEW YORK TIMES bestseller 2005: Welcome to NoCal and SoCal, the uneasy sister-states of what used to be California.

The millennium has come and gone, leaving in its wake only stunned survivors. In Los Angeles, Berry Rydell is a former armed-response rentacop now working for a bounty hunter. Chevette Washington is a bicycle messenger turned pickpocket who impulsively snatches a pair of innocent-looking sunglasses. But these are no ordinary shades. What you can see through these high-tech specs can make you rich—or get you killed. Now Berry and Chevette are on the run, zeroing in on the digitalized heart of DatAmerica, where pure information is the greatest high. And a mind can be a terrible thing to crash. . . .

I think Gibson (without googling) was the guy that came up with the cyber punk style aka awesome. Of course Philip K Dick is the grand master.

This is what they print on the back of his books now.

Reading the description, this reminds me first of the premise of "They Live"

The cover to this book and the cover for RP1 look the same at first glance.

Does anyone know how this reads compared to Neal Stephenson's Snowcrash? I feel like Snowcrash had a lot of dry humor. Does this read/feel similar?

IIRC there's veiled references that are great on re-reads, and pockets of absurdist humor - one of my favorite characters hails from a background that looks for divinity in old tv shows and movies, and worships by streaming as much content as they can every day.

VL is a great read, and a part of my favorite series from this author - second only to the amazing Sprawl trilogy

As with most comparisons of Stephenson books to Gibson books I'd say Gibson writes a much tighter story and is overall a better author and comparing these two is no exception. I am a fan of both and have read both of their entire catalogs. Both feature a strong and savvy female lead with Stephenson's book being more I guess you could say classically and purposefully "futuristic." Stephenson definitely uses humor more than Gibson in all books. I favor Gibson over Stephenson overall though like I said I am a fan of both and I do appreciate Stephenson's humor a lot. I just read D.O.D.O not that long ago and laughed out loud a lot.

Gibson and Stephenson are my 2 favorite authors. The are very similar although Gibson still writes 300 page books and NS seems to need 800 pages to accomplish the same goal. You may find a little less of that dry humor in Gibson, but if you like NS you will like WG.
