Narrator is Fantastic

I'm diametrically opposed to the last reviewer's comments regarding Davis' narration.

Gibson's books contain a polyglot of races and accents. Davis is the perfect choice for these works as his ear for accents is nothing short of amazing. He's one of the few narrators who can manage southern, hispanic, and african-american accents and not force me to cringe.

Outstanding performance

Would you consider the audio edition of Mona Lisa Overdrive to be better than the print version?

The narrator delivers an outstanding performance. His voice, rythm and style are the best I've heard on Audible so far. He gives the characters distinct voices without sounding cheesy. Each character speaks with a unique dialect too (American, British, Japanese) and the Japanese words are pronounced perfectly.

Any additional comments?

Normally I am not into writing reviews, however this performance of one of my favorite books demands it.

omg

Any additional comments?

Didn't think I could like anything as much as I liked Neuromancer, but this I like equally as much. The way this author balances entertainment with literary value, with poetry, it's just too amazing. I can't fathom it. And what an awesome ending!

Intricate enough for several listens.

Where does Mona Lisa Overdrive rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This ranks in top 20 of 100+ books I've listened to. I am a big fan of Jonathan Davis, though, so this made a big difference.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters all had unique personalities, and the action kept things moving along fairly well, even though Gibson's stories are fairly cerebral.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Compared favorably to All Tomorrow's parties and The Windup Girl, both of which I listened to multiple times.

A Brilliant Follow-on to Neuromancer

Great things about reading a Gibson years after it's written is to see just how much he was ahead of the curve as to various technological and social developments. The Internet, got it perfectly right . Cell phones? Totally missed it.
Courtney Liefje the reader, however, is his ability to talk about the technological backdrop of his work without preaching about it too much-it just is , like the beat up Sam crawlers in the first Star Wars movie . No explanation, just pay attention and get with it. Find away my favorite sci-fi writer of the last 30 years

Really really really really really good.

Mystery in the streets and creatures hiding in cyberspace. Taking place two decades after the events of Neromancer, Mona Lisa Overdrive unfolding in front of your eyes. Tales of advanced designer drugs, gangs of suits and the elusive high of cyberspace.
Burning like novocaine in the tip of your tongue.

Three girls, one vampire, ghosts and a few familiar faces. This really is truly the sequel, to one of the greatest books of all time. Not a bad one either.

Great ending to a great trilogy

I had read the first book years ago and have now finally finished the trilogy and it was well worth it. It still stands up to today's technology (except for the telephones) and it was great to see Molly back in action again. The performance was also very well done with a great use of different voices.

fantastic read!

love this book, but so sad that the trilogy is over. The narrator does a fantastic job of bringing William Gibson's world to life. I cannot recommend this enough.

excellent end to an excellent trilogy

narrator does a great job, excellent at doing different accents without sounding corny (or racist). Gibson is a legend, and this is another great example as to why.

Wonderful hypnotic voice and writing

Gibson’s poetic tight prose and the narrator’s smoothly hypnotic voice are well-matched. The characters are always differentiated so despite the many points of view, there is never any doubt as to whom is talking and to whom. Gibson is a great builder of alternate realities. And possibilities.

Wonderful

This audio book presents William Gibson's story very vividly. The narrator brings the various characters to life and it's a pleasure to follow the plot of the novel while listening to the narrator's different interpretations of the chracters.

I read the Neuromancer trilogy several times before, but the audio book was a whole new experience of an already well-known story. Very well done!

Speaker on sleeping pills ...

Read the book when I was 20ish, wanted to dive into the world of cyberpunk again.... and nearly fell asleep ... The speaker must have taken sleeping pills, as slow as he read!! Had to put it on 1,75 in fear of growing old while listening.
And the intonation of Kumiko-Voice was like a ball-cut hush sound all the time ... No no no ... With that I couldn't really enjoy it, didn't "get into the feeling" of the story! Sorry! FIRST TIME I'm trying to get my money back for real!
