    Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-U.N. envoy turned private eye, has changed careers, and bodies, once more, trading sleuthing for soldiering as a warrior-for-hire and helping a far-flung planet's government put down a bloody revolution.

    "Futuristic Corporate Players"
    Overall


    Broken Angels; in my honest opinion has got to be one of the all time best books I have ever had the pleasure of listen to. This futuristic tale was not only fascinating but very creative as well. The author Richard K. Morgan must have been to the future and back to have been so creative. This particular book takes place somewhere in the future where people can re-sleeve themselves into other bodies, where real death occurs only when you don’t have enough currency. I read three of his novels and loved each and every one of them; so much in fact that I listened to them at least two or three times each. With Broken Angels being number 1, Altered Carbon, and Woken Furies are both as entertaining as Broken Angels. I loved them all.

    Stoner knew. The fiery object hurtling toward the Earth was an alien spacecraft. But the world might never know. He was trapped in an iron cordon of secrecy, for the discovery had shattered the world power balance, setting off a brutal struggle for supremacy that raged from the sacred halls of the Vatican to the corridors of the Kremlin and the Pentagon. The forces of fear and treachery would use any weapon at their command, from mind war to sabotage, to keep the world in darkness.

    Noe says: "Not Quite "Rendezvous With Rama""
    "Fascinating and engrossing"
    Overall

    This book was excellent in many respects. The reality on how our governments would react was quite convincing. The paranoia, top secret classifications, the fear, all was quite convincing. I loved the main characters as well, I felt as if I knew each one of them personally. The book was well read and once it was finish, it left me wanting more. If I had to rate this particular book I would have to give it a ten plus.
