Mona Lisa Overdrive is the third of Gibson’s novels. With some of the characters from the first two books rearing there heads once more.
The Count, who’s love of technology has finally over come him to such an extent that he is living in a wholly computer generated reality. Angie, who has now become the worlds most famous ‘sim-stim’ star.3Jane the last of the Tessier-Ashpool empire. And the culmination of the new life generated in Neuromancer.
The story is mainly follows two new characters. Mona Lisa who started life as white trash from the deep Southern States and dreams of becoming a famous star, and Kumiko the daughter of the head of the powerful underground Yakuza.
Its twisting story lines keep you constantly guessing as to where it is going to next.
Mona Lisa Overdrive is highly recommended to those who liked Neuromancer or the movie Blade Runner.
