I know you all are sick of me whining about wanting one before I die. My goal is to die IN a flying car. I refuse to die until I can go out that way.
Close enough. There are a lot of heady ideas in the book too, about what makes up a human. Souls and stuff. But, it's combined with enough blood and gore and action that you don't get too philosophical.
I would say that you will like this book if you love future sci-fi and gory mystery and maybe a bit of noir.
And darkness. This isn't a ride on the happy-train. But, I liked it. I'm getting back on the happy train for my next book, as a palate cleanser, but it was worth it.

However, it is very frequently recommended in the excellent PrintSF forum I frequent. One of the best practitioners of crime fiction is Michael Connelly , whose most famous creation is detective Harry Bosch.
If Mr. C This book is legendary among cyberpunk fans, I do not really count myself among them as I have read too little from this sub-genre to qualify.
Connelly had put Detective Bosch in space and cyberspace he may have ended up with something like Altered Carbon if he is lucky.
Altered Carbon takes place in a universe where human personalities can be digitized and transfer to different bodies called sleeves , artificial or natural but unoccupied.
Takeshi Kovacs' consciousness was in storage when he suddenly finds himself in a stranger's body and tasked with solving a mystery for a millionaire whose life was recently restored from backup after he has apparently committed suicide.
His backed up consciousness has no memory of this alleged suicide because it occurs after the backup was made and he insists that he is not the suicidal type.
The story is not difficult to get into due to its linear timeline and a single first-person narrative. It took me a while to warm up to the protagonist Kovacs because like most fictional hard-boiled detectives he is a pain in the nether regions until you get to know him.
The other characters are interesting enough without leaving much of an impression, one exception being an AI character named after a legendary guitar hero.
Morgan's prose seems more American than English, which surprised me a bit given that he is British, but the style goes with the noir territory I suppose.
Visceral and lean with the occasional surprising passages of contemplative and even lyrical narration.
The nature of "the self" and reality is thoughtfully ruminated upon. I have read several reviews that mentioned that this book would make a great action film, one review even describes it as a Schwarzenegger film.
This may well be the case if they cut out all the thoughtful elements and just concentrate on blowing shit up real good.
I wonder how pleased the author would feel with that? I would rate this novel at 4. Still, it is a fantastic sf book with plenty of food for thought and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone in search of an excellent sci-fi read.
The idea is understandable but somehow does not jibe with me. There is an interesting discussion of the idea here.

With a little effort, it can fail to see even the most glaring injustice. Morgan, Altered Carbon It takes something special for a book to keep me burning through the pages until 3 a.
Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan is a helluva read. Winner of the Philip K. Dick Award for Best Novel, Morgan is a wicked blend of Philip K.
Dick and William Gibson. There is even a touch of Gene Roddenberry's various Star Trek series. But the beneficent Federation is replaced by a universe governed by the United Nations, a tough bunch, whose prime directive is to do what it takes to get what you want or think you need.
Introduced to violence at a young age through gang participation, Kovacs is a natural for military service. And he is natural to become a U.
Envoy, the best, and the most brutal in carrying out the U. Set five hundred ,and counting, years in the future, science has mastered the art of defying the principle of you only go around this life once.
You can grab all the gusto you'd like, time after time, through the development of Digital Human Forms called sleeves. Even the mind can be digitized and backed up in case something untoward occurs to your current self.
The wealthier you are, the more of your selves you can keep in storage. Theoretically if you've got the money and the power, you could live forever.
Those that choose to do so are called "Meths" by the younger and poorer citizens of Earth and the other off-world colonies. Now your first thought might be, why this is no dystopia.
This is utopia! But there are a few problems with that. Imagine being married to the same person for three hundred years, and having all the money it takes to support the theory that variety is the spice of life.
The preceding statement does not reflect the views or opinions of the reviewer. My wife reads these things. Got it?
Enter Laurens Bancroft and his lovely wife Miriam. To say that they have become a bit jaded is more than a bit of understatement.
Bancroft enjoys slumming in the myriad sex clubs available, from the lowest to the most exclusive. Bancroft is murdered, so he says, upon being re-sleeved in one of his copies.
The Bay City Police Department rules it a suicide. Members of the department have little or no sympathy for Meths. They have better things to worry about.
Consider this. As he tells Kovacs, "If I had wanted to commit suicide I wouldn't be standing here talking to you.
Maybe no. Not only do denizens of Morgan's world routinely resort to the F-Bomb in conversation, they enjoy engaging in the actual activity.
Morgan includes enough gratuitous sex scenes to appeal to most prurient interests. Of course Miriam Bancroft seduces Kovacs not only through her perfect body but by the secretion of a sexually enhancing chemical from every pore of her body.
Erectile dysfunction is NOT a problem in Morgan's world. Nor do Miriam and Kovacs end up in separate bath tubs.
I've never understood that Cialis commercial anyway. Have you? Of course, Miriam would like to see Kovacs close the case, making her a prime suspect.
But Morgan supplies us with a host of other likely suspects, whom I will not reveal for fear of disclosing too much of the plot.
Let's just say this re-sleeving business is a huge money maker, along with virtual and actual prostitution a lucrative concern as well.
There is little justice for those without money or power. Morgan intriguingly plots his novel around the question of when does science cross the line of morality and religion.
Not every citizen wants to be re-sleeved, particularly those of the Catholic faith who see multiple lives as keeping them from the opportunity of ever getting to Heaven.
At the heart of this twining and twisting plot is the question of Resolution No. Can one opt out of being kept digitally stored and re-sleeved?
Catholics have taken to having themselves tattooed with the equivalent of a do not resuscitate code. That proposition makes them likely targets for murder, especially when it comes to snuffing an unwilling prostitute.
Dick Award for Best Novel, Altered Carbon is an addictive page turner which should engage the lover of not only hard-boiled detective novels, but cyberpunk as well.
If it's not on your to read shelf, add it. Now, just one thing about this Methuselah business It's science fiction noir, and Morgan has a nice touch of both noir phrasing and overly-complicated noir plotting.
I really didn't see the intricacies of the story until they were laid out, but it never worried me. I enjoyed being plunged into the confusing world that Takeshi Kovacs wakes up in, with little more information than he had.
Note: The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement. You can read why I came to this decision here.

I liked the future setting and the advances in technology that change the concept of life and death. Unfortunately, it read like a script for an action movie.
Some good ideas, but too much senseless action and violence ruined it for me. View all 13 comments.

With my sinus allergies kicking my butt, I don't have the energy to write a really long review, so I'll keep it simple.
I thought this was an excellent book, though not really a comfortable book. I don't think this book is for everyone.
The language is very coarse, to be honest. Liberal use of the worst word for women in written language is employed.
It starts with a 'c' and ends with a 't', and I think you can fill in the blanks. I winced just about every time. Despite this, and the fact that t With my sinus allergies kicking my butt, I don't have the energy to write a really long review, so I'll keep it simple.
Despite this, and the fact that this story deals with prostitution and horrible abuse of women in a disturbingly intimate manner, I don't feel that Mr.
Morgan showed misogynistic tendencies in his writing. In fact, some of the most strongest, most three-dimensional characters in this story were women, and each one was different.
I particularly liked Ortega, and her relationship with Kovacs. Trepp was interesting, as well. Miriam was somewhat standard noir fair. You know, the bodacious vixen who also happens to be the wife of the victim, who seduces the PI?
Yeah, that's in this book. This book was fairly violent, although not quite what I'd call gratuitous. Not gratuitous in the sense that the whole book wasn't violent.
But, yeah, there are some pretty in your face scenes. Let's just say I would be looking away on quite a few scenes if this was a movie.
There's a fair amount of sex, too. I thought it was tasteful and well-written, despite all the nasty inferences to particularly 'icky' sexual practices.
That was all off-scene, thankfully. The worldbuilding was very good. The whole concept of sleeving changing bodies , and stacking digital storage of consciousness was a bit disturbing for me.
They have figured out the key to immortality in the 25th century, and that immortality is not a pretty one, at least to me.
Bascially, if you have enough money, you can have your consciousness continually transferred to different bodies as the old ones wear out, or your present body is prematurely damaged.
Let's just hope you do have the dough to spring for a new body. If not, well, I guess you get to hang out in a digital storage bank, for eternity.
I did like the tech, some aspects that made it clear this was a future setting, but not so much that I got bored.
I did have some issues getting used to the vocabulary; but I soon fell into the stream of things. This book gave me some things to think about.
My feelings about what gives a person her or his identity. Is the soul what they are storing, or is it merely the consciousness?
What happens to the soul? How can you be unique if you can download your consciousness into more than one body at a time?
Morgan doesn't try to answer these questions, so I'm still pondering it, left to draw my own conclusions.
In this future world of Earth, the Catholics definitely don't agree with digital storage of consciousness, and they fight it. Unfortunately, that makes Catholics a particular target for people who don't have respect for human life.
That was another theme this book touched on. There are some people powerful ones who don't seem to value human life; since, well, you can just buy a new body when the old one is not working anymore.
And people who are not worth anything in society, they are simply disposable. One of the major bad guys comes right out and says this.
It made me think that even today, when we don't get replacement bodies, people have the same attitude. Life isn't sacred, if the person isn't worth anything in the material sense.
Kind of sad to see that things haven't changed. Kovacs was a protagonist that had layers. David Griffin of IGN said the show "gets almost everything right" as a "cyberpunk fantasyland.
He also wrote of the show's problems, such as the intricacies of the murder often got "in the way of the show's momentum" and the murder plot "loses steam" early on.
He ultimately gave it a score of 8. The Vancouver Sun summarized that the reaction of professional critics was mixed, and that the critics' conclusion was that the "murder mystery takes a back seat to the show's futuristic visuals.
Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times gave it a mixed review, but particularly praised Kinnaman, even if the fight scenes were described as tedious in a way.
He concludes "it's refreshing to see a show so unashamed about its pulpiness. The spectacle might grow stale but for now, the flash is blinding.
Many critics focused on the show's violence. Gavia Baker-Whitelaw of The Daily Dot wrote that the show seemed to use "the dystopian setting as an excuse for sexualized violence," and that the focus on dead, naked women's bodies "was a massive distraction from the show's stronger points, like the well-choreographed fight scenes and Takeshi Kovacs' backstory.
However, she noted that the investigation part "clicks along smartly," and that the fight sequences were "sophisticated".
She gave it a "B-" grade. The website's critical consensus reads, "While not quite there yet, a clearer sense of purpose and more defined characters help Altered Carbon sophomore season step closer to the brilliance of its source material.

Kovacs agrees to convince Bancroft he committed suicide. His version of the story is as follows. Bancroft contracted the Rawlings virus from a brothel.
The Rawlings virus is designed to scramble cortical stacks and prevent re-sleeving, causing permanent death. To prevent it from contaminating his clones, Bancroft committed suicide.
Kawahara agreed to procure a copy of the virus for Kovacs. Kovacs learns that Bancroft went to an airship -turned-brothel named Head in the Clouds on the night he died.
This establishment is run by Kawahara. Kadmin kidnaps Ortega and threatens to kill her unless Kovacs trades himself for her. Ortega is released, and Kovacs is forced to fight in a duel against Kadmin.
Trepp and the police arrive, killing Kadmin. Kovacs double-sleeves, controlling both Ryker and a second body simultaneously.
Ortega and Kovacs infiltrate Head in the Clouds. Kovacs forces a confession from Kawahara. As part of her cover-up, Kawahara framed Ryker for corruption, since he was investigating the murder.
She asked Bancroft to help her kill Resolution to prevent the prostitute from testifying, but he refused.
Kawahara and Miriam had Bancroft drugged; out of his mind, he killed a prostitute and then killed himself in order to erase the memory out of guilt and self-preservation.
Assisted by Trepp, Kovacs blows out the side of the airship. In the aftermath, Bancroft is cleared by the U.
The copy of Kovacs that stayed with Miriam is erased, as double sleeving is illegal, but he makes the surviving copy of Kovacs promise to cover up Miriam's involvement.
Describing the book, Kirkus Reviews said that "The body count is high, the gadgetry pure genius, the sex scenes deliriously overwrought, and the worn cynicism thoroughly distasteful: a welcome return to cyberpunk's badass roots.
The book won the Philip K. Dick Award for Best Novel in A television adaptation was announced in An initial episode season had been ordered by Netflix.
Extensive and significant changes to the source material were made in the adaptation. Kovacs is shown as having been trained as an Envoy by, and serving as a revolutionary under, Falconer.
The Quellist Revolution is crushed by the Protectorate the established, inter-planetary government in an apocalyptic assault. Kovacs, the only survivor, is presented as the last Envoy.
In the books, Envoys were and are the elite forces of the Protectorate which would have been fighting against the revolution ; Falconer did lead a revolution but died long before Kovacs was born; Kovacs trained as an Envoy under a different woman; and the Envoy Corps is still very much in use by the Protectorate and remains widely feared, although Kovacs is no longer a member of Corps.
Kovacs recruits an unlikely partner to watch his back during a banquet at the Bancroft home, where Ortega oversees the night's grisly entertainment.
Tortured by his captor, Kovacs taps into his Envoy training to survive. After learning his sleeve's identity, Kovacs demands the full story from Ortega.
A tip from Poe leads to a major breakthrough in the Bancroft case. With Ortega's fate hanging in the balance, Kovacs drops a bombshell on the Bancrofts.
Later, he comes face to face with an unsettling opponent. As Kovacs reconnects with a figure from his past, his tangled history with the Protectorate, the Uprising and Quell plays out in flashbacks.
His world rocked, Kovacs requests a dipper to help him sew up the Bancroft case quickly. Ortega races to identify the mystery woman from Fight Drome.
After a devastating rampage, Kovacs and his allies hatch a bold -- and very risky -- scheme to infiltrate Head in the Clouds.
As a cornered Kovacs braces for a final showdown in the sky, a new hero emerges and more buried secrets come to light. View All Altered Carbon: Season 1 News.
All Critics 95 Top Critics 34 Fresh 65 Rotten It's a dark, violent and exploitative future, of course, but we wouldn't want it any other way.
Big issues of body, mind, identity and technology shuffle around the "Altered Carbon" universe, but the show often drags its feet in order to fill its individual episodes' running times.
Yet for all of its bells and whistles, nothing about Altered Carbon feels very different or new or bold. The sheer amount of imagining, both borrowed and original, accumulates into a vast, dirty world and gives Altered Carbon the feel of a proper cyberpunk novel: big, baggy, ambitious, trashy, funny, gruesome, clever, cheesy, and hyperactive.
If you can get past that violence, or even through it, there's much to savor. Morgan's novel has been turned into a phantasmagoria of sights, sounds and details.
Part of the thrill of "Altered Carbon," the new sci-fi series from Netflix, is figuring out the rules of the strange future universe we've been dropped into.
I think it's easier to call Altered CarbonSeason 2 good, which is only frustrating because Season 1 was extraordinary. Altered Carbon has a lot going for it - it's production values are high, it's absolutely gorgeous to look at, and it's playing at themes that might very well be interesting.
Altered Carbon shines a technicolor male gaze on the bruised and mutilated bodies of young women. The first two episodes of 'Altered Carbon' are not wonderful, but they do have enough virtues to surprise us with this Richard Morgan's novel's adaptation.
