Hmm, interesting. It's been forever since I've read it but I thought there was a significant chunk of the plot that hinges directly on the body switching tech.

Yes, that's absolutely key to the murder mystery scenario.

As I recall, Broken Angels is far more of a pure sci-fi story, then Woken Furies has military and crime/heist leanings.

I'd love some new Kovacs-verse books. The Ringil Eskiath story never grabbed me as much even once it started to link in slightly.

There's The Black Man if you want some more sci-fi by him.

Having now actually watched the trailer (on a huge screen in a teaching room ;) ) I am now excited for this. Audiobook queued for my next audible credit, also.

That's a really good book.

One of the most chilling openings in any book I've ever read, too.

Market Forces is okay, too.

And then, if you're somehow still upbeat and hopeful about the human race and their place in the universe after all that Morgan, read some Peter Watts.

You have to really suspend your disbelief for that one, though.

God damn it

I had my doubts about Kinnaman. And that review chimes with what I was worried about.

If one fairly poor review removes things from your watch list it’s a wonder you have ever watched anything in your life.

Yeah, no clue if this is any good or not but some amazing films and things got slated by critics when they came out.

On the other hand, if you're time-poor, why not adopt a wait and see approach after even the most modest of warning signs? We're drowning in decent telly these days. It's not like anyone's short on stuff to watch.

30 minutes in. So far it’s good! And a very faithful adaptation.
