Description

Fifty years after the events of Altered Carbon, Takeshi Kovacs is serving as a mercenary in the Procterate-sponsored war to put down Joshuah Kemp's revolution on the planet Sanction IV. He is offered the chance to join a covert team chasing a prize whose value is limitless - and whose dangers are endless.

Here is a novel that takes mankind to the brink.A breakneck-paced crime thriller, Altered Carbon took its readers deep into the universe Morgan had so compellingly realised without ever letting them escape the onward rush of the plot. Broken Angels melds SF, the war novel and the spy thriller to take the reader below the surface of this future and lay bare the treacheries, betrayals and follies that leave man so ill-prepared for the legacy he has been given: the stars.

This is SF at its dizzying best: superb, yet subtle, world-building; strong yet sensitive characterisation; awesome yet believable technology, thilling yet profound writing. Richard Morgan is set to join the genre's world-wide elite.

Definitely okay

Altered Carbon was very good so I went into this one for more of the same, but, it simply wasn't. This was an okay book, don't get me wrong, but that's it. It felt predictable and Kovacs didn't feel consistent, like this was originally a story meant for a different character, and then Kovacs got shoehorned in

It is a great story. Todd does a very good job.

Loved the tv series. Decided to give the books a chance. Does not regret it and will listen to more. My only reservation has to do with twists in the plot that only serve as chock effects.

Not bad.

Some great SF, mystery and R- rated action writing interspersed with some easily skipped hardcore porn and graphic torture. The narrator is great and the story flows well. Just don't listen to it in the car with your kids.

round 2 was as great as round 1 ...

now the Martian question and how the Core will deal with the Envoy still remains

Audio cut off

Unfortunately, the audio in the later stages is cut off a bit. It's still intelligible, but a bit annoying.

overrated

I didn't like this one. Kovacs finds himself as a mercenary fighting a rebellion on a planet, but "defects" to a private expedition exploring a buried wormhole/jump door that leads to an alien spaceship somewhere hidden in the planets solar system. As the military expert he recruits a small crew and off they go on a trip with a genre half military SF, half expedition to the unknown that never gets really running. while the first novel told a somewhat credible story around the tough guy kovacs with a soft spot for his fellow humans, his passion for others is not comprehensive: while a town gets nuked passing by, because "its in the way " without any big explanation or feelings, he suddenly reminiscences with passion about his lost crew members in the end;- a passion which he didn't show until we finally learn about it. overall the story has its length, both descriptions, fighting and sex scenes alike, so that it was hard to remember if there were actually really "hints" in the story that proofed the seemingly orchested revelations in the end.

not quite as good, but worth it

I mostly enjoyed this all the way. some very strange pronunciations of the speaker, though.
