Format: Mass Market Paperback
Pat Cadigan's MindPlayers was one of the first "sci-fi" books I read, and I fell in love with it. All the characters have their own unique quirks and personality traits, but my favorite two characters were the twins, Dolby and Dolan. Each time I read Mindplayers, I find something that I missed the last time I read the book. The creative aspects of the characters is the best part of the story. It is noteworthy that almost every character within the book has an altered appearance; no one seems to be as they were at birth. Onionheads are especially interesting, although they get only a mention. Pat Cadigan has had to endure television and movie ripoffs of some of the details within Mindplayers, but this book remains a classic and the first of its kind.

By A Customer on June 13 1999
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This cyberpunk novel of the future is a bit slow in most places and just kind of drifts from one scene to another, without any real plot. Most of the scenes feel like dreams; I guess the author didn't know enough about real technology to even begin to try to make the stories realistic. So, it's all a bunch of dreams, wandering around aimlessly. It reminded me of the movie eXistenZ, which was similarly hokey. In the afterword of the book, it is revealed this is really four short stories patched together with a little glue; this explains the absence of plot but does not excuse it.

Another great cyberpunk novel by Pat Cadigan. It's worth the extra effort necessary to acquire this out-of-print book. Imagine a future where you entire personality can be rewritten like a software program. You can even become insane for a while if you desire. By popping out your custom-made "biogem" eyes and linking up with another person, intimacy is redefined. I finished this book a week ago and am still thinking about it.
