Manipulation Quotes in Neuromancer

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #10

"So what's the score? How are things different? You running the world now? You God?"

"Things aren't different. Things are things." (24.30-31)

Ah, the infamously ambiguous ending. The reader doesn't know whether Wintermute/Neuromancer will manipulate the world to their liking. Of course, it is suggested that there have always been manipulators anyway, so… whatever?
