I draw things and then build them.
Adult scifi mystery. (three-ish)
There is a pretty clear protagonist in Takeshi Kovacs so that one is easy. Mrs. Bancroft's character was juicy simply for contributing one of the hottest sex scenes I've come across in a while.
It wouldn't be easy to pinpoint a favorite voice from McLaren. He does a fantastic job of clearly delineating the character voices.
Would have loved to given the time.
Listen to the book before the film gets made. Who knows how an adaptation will turn out.
No. But only because I read the book a while back, and then bought it on audio out of curiosity. So I think twice is enough. But fabulously creative. The audio version was well done. The reader had a nice feel for the mood of the book, which is an odd Micky Spillane with action on steroids - in the future. Really fun.
This is not a PG book - if you don't like swearing and sex and violence you should stick to "murder she wrote".
Everyday is Halloween
No. Print is always better but in our busy world that's always on the go - audio is a must have
Kovacs breaking out of the 'Clinic' with a severed head in his hands
The first impression we get of the Hendrix hotel
Buckle your seat belt and PAY ATTENTION
We want MORE Kovacs!
If your into Scifi and Cyberpunk this is the book for you.
The picture that Richard Morgan paints of the future is very engaging and detailed.
Start with Altered Carbon and if you enjoy it keep going because all three books are work the time. Morgan has an interesting twist on what it is to be a human being.
I'm always fascinated when I read an author's view of the future that's original, well-conceived, and completely plausible. The society and culture of this world are worth the visit, even if the characters are straight out of a Raymond Chandler hard-boiled detective novel. It's one of those books where the setting is integral to the story, and vice versa. You can't have one without the other.
But despite what I would consider two-dimentional characters, the overall experience was good. I wouldn't give it my highest recommendation, but I would recommend it for Sci-Fi fans and detective fiction fans.
RKM - Yes
TM - No. Not in this format
Dick Hill, Dennis Boutsikaris, John Lee,
I could not get past the lofty. fluffy British accent which is the same for different characters.
Too bad, because good Sci Fi is hard to come by. Could not listen past 30 mins.
Likely a case of "It's not you,..It's me" as the book has a high average rating.
The story is fascinating and only this kept me reading. There is an exceptional amount of graphic violence, sex and foul language in the book as well, so if you dislike this "baser" side then I do not recommend this series
Really enjoyed the story and the setting. Reminded me of a cross between Blade Runner and the 7th Son books by J.C. Hutchins. Highly recommended.
Different than most Sci-Fi - forced me to think of things never considered
Trep (sp?) - Love/hate kind of thing
