Review/5(34). Synners is the third novel by American SF author Pat Cadigan.

That's essentially Cadigan's premise in this cyberpunk classic. It's impossible, obviously, not to read this novel with eyes, but I suspect that simply enriched the experience (particularly as I find cyberpunk mostly irritating as a rule).
