    Wow To be fair, I have been looking forward to readingMorgan since the devouring the trilogy that started with Altered Carbon Wasn t quite sure I wanted to go the fantasy route with him, but his SF It s an automatic Hell Yes I m a big fan of Cyberpunk and Noir fiction and this has all the same great features if less technologically advanced as Altered Carbon Think Noir disgraced military turned gumshoe but put him firmly on a Mars surrounded by corruption, nasty corporate tricks, Wow To be fair, I have been looking forward to readingMorgan since the de...

    Thin Air is in the same vein as Takeshi Kovacs but the noirish hard boiled element is muchHakan Veil is an ex black ops operative who is now dabbling in crime to keep himself alive He is a manufactured product developed by a corporation to help them solve problems usually permanently He is now unemployed but still has to pay for hibernation As character, I really liked Hakan He starts off as an amoral person but soon we get to see hidden depths in him with elements of humanity Thin Air is in the same vein as Takeshi Kovacs but the noirish hard boiled element is muchHakan Veil is an ex black ops operative who is now dabbling in crime to keep himself alive He is a manufactured product developed by a corporation to help them solve problems usually permanently He is now unemployed but still has to pay for hibernation As character, I really liked Hakan He starts...

    Like his 2002 hit Altered Carbon , this one is a great blend of detective noir and cyberpunk in a dystopian world Instead of shipping a detective self to far planets by sleeving a digital personality into a receiving body, the future tech staged here on a colonial, terraformed Mars is in the realm of bioengineering, artificial intelligence implants, and nanotechnology Instead of Tak in the earlier series, our similar hero here is Hak, short for Hakan Veil, and he is a weapon incarnate Veil Like his 2002 hit Altered Carbon , this one is a great blend of detective noir and cyberpunk in a dystopian world Instead of sh...

    This is a standalone novel set in the same universe as Thirteen but as the action is pretty much all Mars with some flashbacks from Hakan Veil s past as overrider see below and discussing a few important geopolitical events in the rest of the Solar System that impact the storyline one doesn t need to read the other book I read it a while ago on publication and didn t like it that much the only thing I remember is that the usual RK Morgan twist, namely the main villain is the main hero s This is a standalone novel set in the same universe as Thirteen but as the action is pretty much all Mars with some flashbacks from Hakan Veil s past as overrider see below and discussing a few important geopolitical events in the rest of the Solar System that impact the storyline one doesn t need to read the other book I read it a while ago on publication and didn t like it that much the only thing I remember is that the usual RK Morgan twist, namely the main villain is the main hero s friend associate employer was present there too thankfully that twist was not really present in Thin Air as I thought it would have been again too much repetition within the author s sf oeuvre also it is self contained in the sense that there is a clear storyline, a clear ending and while the author can writebooks in this universe which could definitely be interesting with the right characters and plot Thin Air is...

    This is only my second Richard K Morgan book after Altered Carbon, so I m not sure whether all his science fiction books are updated detective noir, or that Thin Air is just a cleverly timed tie in for people who loved the recent Altered Carbon Netflix series Either way, this is very much updated detective noir with intricate world building and a believable future, albeit a darkly cynical one.Hakan Veil is an ex overrider, a genetically engineered and cybernetically enhanced human essentially This is only my second Richard K Morgan book after Altered Carbon, so I m not sure whether all his s...

    A while back my fianc e and I tried watching Altered Carbon on Netflix We made it through one episode with no interest to continue That should have been a good indication that Morgan s stories may not be for me, but then again Netflix has long traded quality for quantity and Morgan s new book showed up on Netgalley and it s been a while since I read some scifi and it was set on Mars, so I took a chance A decision I ve come to regret over and over during the countless, ok, not really, it was A while back my fianc e and I tried watching Altered Carbon on Netflix We made it through one episode with no interest to continue That should have been a good indication that Morgan s stories may not be for me, but then again Netflix has long traded quality for quantity and Morgan s new book showed up on Netgalley and it s been a while since I read some scifi and it was set on Mars, so I took a chance A decision I ve come to regret over and over during the countless, ok, not really, it was technically one morning and one day, but still entirely too long of a time it took to get through And here s the thing it may not be Morgan at all, he seems to be wildly acclaimed award winning author, it might have just been the non existent author reader chemistry, but boy, did I loathe this book Kinda knew I wasn t gonna like it from the first pages, but no, my OCD drives me to finish every book I start and since it s such an odd uncharacteristic display of drive for an otherwise drivefree pe...

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED This book is a whole lot of fun It is, essentially, a hard boiled noir detective story set on the Red Planet Think of Mike Hammer on Mars Although set in the same universe as Thirteen, it is a stand alone novel and completely separate from its predecessor Meaning, if you haven t read Thirteen, no worries, you will have no problem with starting here In many ways, I think Thin Air is superior in style and overall fun It is a great combination of old fashioned detective HIGHLY RECOMMENDED This book is a whole lot of fun It is, essentially, a hard boiled noir detective story set on the Red Planet Think of Mike Hammer on Mars Although set in the same universe as Thirteen, it is a stand alone novel and completely separate from its predecessor Meaning, if you haven t read Thirteen, no worries, you will have no problem with starting here In many ways, I think Thin Air is superior in style and overall fun It is a great combination of old fashioned detective noir and science fiction view spoiler On Mars, corporations cla...

    Thin Air is a grim swaggering tour de force of hardscrabble cyberpunk thrills Take a gene enhanced cyborg trained killer exiled by the corporate overlords to spend the rest of his waking hours on the frontier of Mars where the cities are filled with beating nightclubs, egotripping stars, lightshows, strippers, and corruption by the armful Surround that city with the frontier valley, filled with prospectors hoping to find fabled El Dorado, tight knit, loyal, distrustful of outsiders Cyborg Thin Air is a grim swaggering tour de force of hardscrabble cyberpunk thrills Take a gene enhanced cyborg trained killer exiled by the corporate overlords to spend the rest of his waking hours on the frontier of Mars where the cities are filled with beating nightclubs, egotri...
