Quote from Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan

I really enjoyed Altered Carbon (by Richard Morgan) - delicious cyberpunk detective-noir. The reading by Todd McLaren was excellent as well. Recommended.

From the opening, I knew this was going to be sweet. Here's a short quote from Chapter 1 which I was going to post back when I read the book in May.

“You’re a lucky man, Kovacs.”

Sure. 180 light years from home wearing another man’s body on a six-week rental agreement Freighted in to do a job that the local police wouldn’t touch with a riot prod. Fail and go back into storage. I felt so lucky I could’ve burst into song as I walked out the door.  - Takeshi Kovacs
