Altered Carbon by Richard K Morgan
Altered Carbon

zema50, January 1, 2010

The first book by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is set 500 years in the future, on a planet that is grounded in medical transformation of humans into "sleaves" that suspend individual beings until they are "recalled" for their key skills and expertise. A former spartan-like envoy is recalled to solve the mystery of why a 200-year old delegate of an international corporation shoots himself in the head. The mystery of whether the delegate was murdered, or actually committed suicide leads the envoy on a wild ride that is driven by the author's colorful imagination, and stunning description of the future role of electro-chemical medicine in perpetuating the powerful, and how culture drives what is true and just in life. A masterful first effort the autor, and a memorable ride for the reader.
