Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan
Altered Carbon

Aveeare, April 22, 2008

I was bored, needed a book, and picked this up after reading the title. Upon finishing it, my coworker told me her husband had read it and talked about it all the time (so much so that she felt she had a grasp of the world it details). At any rate, reading Altered Carbon was like watching Bladerunner again, and the idea of "sleeving" was really interesting. I'm on his second book, and I heartily recommend that as well.
