Are we defined by our bodies? Or is who we are something more intangible than that? Morgan brings up some very interesting concepts in Altered Carbon, which is the first in his series. This book will make you think.
Set in the twenty-fifth century, we follow Takeshi Kovacs, who once was a U.N. Envoy. He is about to be involved in a conspiracy, that is more tangled than the batch of wires coming out of a server room, and darker than a murderer’s soul.
He has no choice in the matter. Kovacs knows almost nothing about the situation he finds himself in, and he pieces it together, slowly, as the story moves.
