I decided to try giving science fiction a shot since I used to enjoy it a lot when I was young but lately I’ve been reading more fantasy and horror. So I checked out Burning Chrome by William Gibson from work.
Burning Chrome is a collection of short stories. I’ve mentioned before how I like short stories since they make me feel like I’m actually getting some reading done. I suppose most people have heard of “Johnny Mnemonic” which is included in this collection and I have to say I like Keanu Reeves.
Some of the others just had too much jargon for me to read before bed, so I’d get confused or have to read extra slow. I know it’s not tough reading, but still, my tired mind can only handle so much. I didn’t enjoy much the ones that felt more “hardware” – like the technology was at the forefront.
Gibson is a successful science fiction writer, so I don’t think there really is much I can say about his writing, other than I like it and want to read more. Oh, I hear Gibson is American-Canadian so I get to count this as #2 in the Canadian Book Challenge. (Actually I read this back in October, but waited so long to blog…)
