I really enjoyed the Kovacs novels, but be warned this is a big departure. Its slower and more cerebral than those books. So if you're just in the mood for a Kovacs sci-fi, shoot 'em up, sex romp you might be disappointed.
That said, this is probably my favorite Richard K. Morgan novel. Yes, I like the Road Warrior aspect of it all, and the ideas about the future of corporations were great. The book also has some elements of some my favorite classics though like The Great Gatsby maybe even Dickens or Aldous Huxley. I thought it was pretty awesome overall.
Good book! I really could have done without the endless, dull description of where all the parts of his Dell came from. BLAH. Also, I thought the first half of the book was really interesting and compelling (even the historical explanations of the Internet bubble) while the concluding half wasn't as strong.
