Description

Four hundred years from now mankind is strung out across a region of interstellar space inherited from an ancient civilization discovered on Mars. The colonies are linked together by the occasional sublight colony ship voyages and hyperspatial data-casting. Human consciousness is digitally freighted between the stars and downloaded into bodies as a matter of course.

But some things never change. So when ex-envoy, now-convict Takeshi Kovacs has his consciousness and skills downloaded into the body of a nicotine-addicted ex-thug and presented with a catch-22 offer, he really shouldn't be surprised. Contracted by a billionaire to discover who murdered his last body, Kovacs is drawn into a terrifying conspiracy that stretches across known space and to the very top of society. Read by Todd McLaren.

Great audiobook, some distracting mistakes

I don't know whether it was misreading or some typos in the original source material, but the narrator says "yazuka" once, before saying the correct "yakuza" later in the book. Near the end he also says "casual link" where only "causal link" would make sense in the context. I found these mistakes distracting from an otherwise compelling story and voice performance.

Smooth book - the recording, not so much

Marvelous book - smooth blend of the sci-fi and detective elements which is really cool. Even 400 years out there's still femme fatale, a criminal underbelly hidden in the darkest corners of the city and a corrupt elite preying on the weak.

The performance was all right but the quality of the recording was lackluster. Sometimes you can hear background noise and the push of the record-button.

Rambling about nothing.

Cringe inducing sex scenes. Overly flowery writing. Some chapters ramble about literally nothing. Steer clear.

Slow starting book with an action packed ending

If you are a patient listener, are good at remembering names, and like sci-fi this is a book for you!
Voicing might seem a little dull at times, but actually the choice of voicing gives the book it's own charm.
For me the 3/5 is a good solid score, that is entertaining above average, but still lacks a little in voice acting. The books biggest difficulty are the many characters you are introduces to, after hearing all the book, I got them correct placed, but it confused me a lot in the first 75% of the book.

Great premise. Too long

The premise and scifi are engaging and entertaining. The blurring between reality, virtual reality and the potential for the human soul to be converted into software is exactly the reason why I am a scifi fan. But this book is too long. Long passages that added little to the story. By the end I did not care how it resolved I struggled to finish. Performance of the actor is very compelling. They capture the tone and voice of each character.

Punchline - good story in need of an editor

Spews Translucent Rawness.

Ultra Violentce, Superbly Original Technology & Primal Sex. With every other human emotion & state of mind woven in to a Hurricane paced plot that blows your mind. Leaving you with one last thought, "I Fucking need to download book 2 NOW".... I pity anyone who trys to stop you !

Love the book/schow

I wanted to read/hear the books after watching the netflix show. I love it as much as I enjoyed the show but the story sometimes jumps to a side story (a dream, flashback, etc.) so abruptly that you don’t actually realize it for a couple of seconds and it really throws you off the story cause you sit there wondering „wait whats happening?!“. Overall still recommend!

Bad production

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

One star removed for replacing the (very good) reader from the first two books. This is very annoying in a trilogy.
One star removed for the editor due to the wrong pronunciation of the main characters last name (especially considering that this has been a point made repeatedly in Altered Carbon).
Two stars removed for bad audio design. The publishers try to use effects to spice up this production was a huge misfire for me. The introduction almost hurt to listen to.

Very good story but bad execution. Probably will not even finish this.
Shame, the first two audio books were very good.

too fast?

well I don't say this very often, but I actually liked the TV series better than the book. somehow the book is just a little bit too fast it doesn't develop the characters as nicely.
