In the futuristic world of Altered Carbon, consciousness is a downloadable product that can be easily "re-sleeved" in a new body when the old one gives out. In such a renewable realm, where death is seen merely as a passing technological glitch, Takeshi Kovacs is an unwelcome oddity; a man who asks too many questions about the moguls of this brave new world. As he searches for answers in the seedy underworld of Bay City (formerly San Francisco), Kovacs learns that the price of failure is death. Final death.

3.5 "Modyfikowany węgiel" Richard Morgan
Coraz więcej dzisiaj ekranizacji ksiażek. Dochodzi do tego, że dopiero natykając się na jakiś serial czy film dowiaduję sie , że jego pierwowzorem była książka.

4.5 "Pull on new flesh like borrowed gloves / And burn your fingers once again."
Altered Carbon by Richard K Morgan Murder, intrigue, and digital human freight. For me, speculative-hardboiled genre melds are a deeply satisfying blend of the familiar and the alien. Hardboiled is an incredibly restrictive, trope-driven genre: there’s the jaded hero, the mean streets, the femme f...
