It exceeded my expectations in the pornographic Mississippi and it was a good day and if you're into science-fiction with this with I like the way he personalize the characters
This was my first Richard Morgan novel, and I was pleasantly surprised. Altered Carbon had a little bit of everything without getting bogged down in detail, romance, action, or narrative. Morgan weaves an intricate murder mystery into a unique universe where life and death have taken on a different context, but have no less meaning. Seen through the eyes of Takeshi Kovacs, an envoy turned detective, it is a very interesting story that I found hard to put down, and may get you thinking what it really means to be "you."
The story was good enough. SciFi noire pulp fiction story. The narrator did a nice job and had a wide rang of voices, but the production was noisy. A lot of white noise in the background. When a section was edited, you could really tell the difference as the noise would drop out. The sex did not bother me, but there should be a warning invade you have kids around while you are listening.
Reading is a great source for an old guy trying to reinvent himself
This book is a disappointment. In spite of a clever concept and a reasonably good plot, there are too many OSSs and EVs. The acronyms stand for Obligatory Sex Scene amend Excessive Violence especially when they exist only for themselves and their titallation and not that help drive the story line. In this case there were so many of them and they were so gratuatous that I found myself forgetting what the story was about. Perhaps editors, and publishers insist on this because they think it will sell more books. Maybe I don't have the stats but they hurt the quality of the bookand deprive me of a recommendation.
Audio volume on this book left something to be desired, had a hard time hearing this in my car unless volume is all the way up.
It was believable.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
This was his best so far.
The description of a sleeve was believable, as was the torturous inequity of wealth in the future.
Good story and sound quality is good but you can hear the obvious stop and starts in the recording done by the narrator. I am used to a continuous feeling but here I can tell where he took breaks or something like that.
