    Somewhere between 3 1 2 4 stars.First off, as I m sure most know, this book movie are based on the short story, Johnny Mnemonic , by cyberpunk author, William Gibson.I have never read the short story, though I plan to, of course.If you haven t seen the movie, I m not sure if you should The acting is horrendous, the costumes are laughable, the dialogue, horrible I guess if you like 80 s films enough you might get a little heart flutter kick out of it but otherwise it is pretty bad Don t axe me why but I ve seen it like 3 or 4 times over the years and just watched it today right before this review, right after finishing the book.I will say that the book is at least 320 gigabytes better than the movie Terry Bisson did a fine job trying to take the script by William Gibson and inject some energy in it to match the movie IF the movie had ve turned out as good aslet s say, Blade Runner written by Philip K Dick , directed by Ridley Scott or even Strange Days written by James Cameron , directed by Kathryn Bigelow.Too bad the movie wasn t as good as those It would ve been awesome, if so Personally, I d like to see the movie remade with a better script by someone other than William Gibson and importantly, by a director with a better vision The book is fast paced, hard to put down and pretty good.Johnny is a mnemonic courier, who has a data storage device implanted in his head, so he is able to carry around large gigabytes of information not safe enough to upload into cyberspace the internet He is a mostly likable guy who hooks up with Jane, who suffers from a cybernetic disease called Nerve Attenuation Syndrome aka NAS, the symptoms of which cause the black shakes , which Wiki states is caused by an overexposure to electromagnetic radiation from omnipresent technological devices, and is presented as a raging epidemic affecting the world in the future Johnny needs to get the info out immediately or the data will seep out and kill him long before he even has a chance to be inflicted by NAS Jane is going to help him For a price, of course Several factions, including the Yakuza mafia, are hellbent on obtaining the data, not hesitating for a moment, if that means chopping off Johnny s head to get to it Here s the synopsis from the back of the DVD And here s the description from the back of the ORIGINAL short story, with one noticeable difference in the film he only has 24 hours not 48 to get the data out of his head Also, anyone planning to read this novelization may be glad to know the book does not star either Dolph Lundgren or Ice T or Canoe Reeves , for that matter Sometimes I just wanted to reach into the screen and strangle the characters Can t wait to read the original story which can be found in Burning Chrome and Cyberpunk Stories of Hardware, Software, Wetware, Evolution, and Revolution , as well as a few other anthology collections The world itself reminded me most of the world in Destroying Angel by Richard Paul Russo You can read my review of Destroying Angel here.If you like this sort of thing, check out my shelf he say you bwade wunnah.

    I believe this title is available in Burning Chrome as a short story This edition shown here contains the short story, some pictures from the movie, and the original movie script.Though I love the short story with a passion the movie was sadly lacking Though when I met Gibson at a signing he was excited to see this edition

    O William Gibson um dos fundadores do Cyberpunk, a corrente de fic o cient fica surgida na virada da d cada de 1970 para a de 1980 Esse Johnny Mnemonic foi publicado originalmente em 1981 na falecida revista americana Omni e ficou mais conhecido pelo filme cujo roteiro tamb m foi escrito pelo Gibson de 1995, estrelado pelo Keanu Reeves Aqui no Brasil foi publicado como um encarte da defunta e interessante revista General, em 1995 um dos primeiros contos do Gibson, sendo anterior ao seu livro mais conhecido e seminal, Neuromancer, de 1984 Nesse conto j poss vel encontrar os elementos que ser o parte do repert rio do Gibson Uma linguagem rebuscada, muito imag tica, algo confusa em alguns ou muitos momentos, acelerada, p s moderna, tamb m cheia dos tiques de uma linguagem acad mica t pica das d cadas de 1970 e 1980 e em alguma medida at hoje em que se vislumbra uma p s modernidade ou hipermodernidade p s humana, em que as pessoas est o integradas, ou melhor, s o parte m quina, parte modifica o biol gica, mas em que o ambiente est decadente, a economia dominada pelas grandes corpora es e apesar disso tamb m algo p s capitalista seja l o que isso for , profundamente desigual, com uns pouqu ssimos mega ricos e uma multid o de pobres, que s o est o deslocados no mundo, em que as institui es tradicionais fam lia e estado, por exemplo faliram Enfim, Gibson um autor com muitas ideias e o cyberpunk, por consequ ncia tamb m Mas a leitura do texto acaba por ter um certo estranhamento Em alguns momentos, tudo parece meio ultrapassado Em outros, por m, parece algo intensamente v vido O conto come a lindamente Meti o rifle dentro da sacola Adidas e forrei tudo com quatro pares de meias para jogar t nis Isso nem de longe faz meu estilo, mas era exatamente isso o que eu queria se te acham grosseiro, seja t cnico se te acham t cnico, seja grosseiro Sou um rapaz muito t cnico Por isso decidi agir do modo mais grosseiro poss vel Depois, por m, Gibson vai se soltando e o texto vai ficando cada vez do tipo que a gente associa a ele Aqui, um exemplo colhido ao acaso os dados s o implantados atrav s de uma s rie modificada de pr teses contraautistas microcir rgicas Despejei uma vers o sem gra a do meu discurso de vendas padr o O c digo do cliente armazenado em um chip especial que bloqueia as Lulas N o h maneira de recuperar a frase c digo N o h drogas ne cirurgia Nem tortura Eu n o sei qual a frase Nunca soube D para perceber que o Gibson teve uma influ ncia grande da literatura de vanguarda Certamente ele leu muito Faulkner ou Joyce e todos os outros grandes da literatura moderna do s culo XX E misturou tudo isso com fic o cient fica e literatura acad mica p s moderna Talvez seja essa a impress o que fica dessa releitura do conto, muita coisa soa datada, como um filme de fic o cient fica dos anos 80, enquanto outras parecem que foram escritas h meia hora Vale a pena, mas eu confesso que tenho grandes dificuldades de seguir o ritmo pilhado da literatura dele Tenho vontade de reler o Neuromancer, talvez o fa a no futuro.

    An very interesting adaptation from a very confusing film.

    There is a freely available online edition of the short story, as ot should be However that edition had spelling mistakes, I should write inconsistent, that bugged me The story is thrilling, perhaps well described as John Wick, Data Courier It s all a little too lucky, and the fascinating world is exposed in an impromptu manner, making the murder an iceberg short story sized of exposition.

    This book is a much better read than Over The Top And obviously a different genre this being sci fi, adventure, mystery But I wouldn t give it 4 stars , 3.5 maybe I think the book reads much better than the movie shows The book creates intrigue, and even though it wasn t a great read for me, it was a page turner Johnny Mnemonic is a data smuggler he actually has a jack socket in the back of his neck And, no, I m not joking LMAO in a futuristic Japan But there are a number of good twists in this book, and a few good characters one secondary female lead It kind of covers some deeper areas as well, especially about the main character s and the way technology is developing The thing is Johnny doesn t know what data he carries, a code is used by the buyer to download the info Also, Johnny can only handle carrying so much data very computerish , and he needed to lose something in order to have the space for data It s not a bad read.

    The beginnings of cyberpunk.I must have read times this story Its plot doesn t matter, it s all about the specifics of the characters and the world the post apocalyptic embedding of technological or biological artifacts into the human or animal bodies.Recommended for cyberpunk fans or anyone interested in another kind of apocalypse than mainstream.
