Reviews

"Compelling . . . immensely entertaining . . . [Richard] Morgan's writing is vivid and his plotting inventive."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Ferociously readable."--The New York Times Book Review

"A fascinating trip . . . Pure high-octane science fiction mixes with the classic noir private-eye tale."--Orlando Sentinel

"Gritty and vivid . . . looks as if we have another interstellar hero on our hands."--USA Today

"This seamless marriage of hardcore cyberpunk and hard-boiled detective tale is an astonishing first novel."--London Times

"An astonishing piece of work . . . A wonderful SF idea . . . Altered Carbon hits the floor running and then starts to accelerate. Intriguing and inventive in equal proportions and refuses to let go until the last page."--Peter Hamilton

"An exciting sf/crime hybrid, with an intricate (but always plausible) plot, a powerful noir atmosphere, and enough explosive action to satisfy the most die-hard thriller fan."--SF Site

"An exhilarating and glossy adventure . . . What makes Altered Carbon a winner is the quality of Morgan's prose. For every piece of John Woo action there is a stunning piece of reflective description, a compelling sense of place, and abundant 24-karat witticisms."--SFX Magazine
