Inhaltsangabe

This is high-action, ideas-driven noir SF of the highest order. Morgan has already established himself as an SF author of global significance. 

Takeshi Kovacs has come home. Home to Harlan's World. An ocean planet with only 5 percent of its landmass poking above the dangerous and unpredictable seas. Try to get above the weather in anything more sophisticated than a helicopter and the Martian orbital platforms will burn you out of the sky. 

And death doesn't just wait for you in the seas and the skies. On land, from the tropical beaches and swamps of Kossuth to the icy, machine-infested wastes of New Hokkaido the hard won gains of the Quellist revolution have been lost. The First Families, the corporations and the Yakuza have a stranglehold on everything.

Embarked on a journey of implacable retribution for a lost love, Kovacs is blown off course and into a maelstrom of political intrigue and technological mystery as the ghosts of Harlan's World and his own violent past rise to claim their due. 

Quellcrist Falconer is back from the dead, they say, and hunting her down for the First Families is a savage young Envoy called Kovacs who's been in storage.

Great story, average William Dufris

The overall continuation of the Takeshi Kovacz story is well written and I enjoyed it a lot. What I did not particularly like is the Hall effect of dream sequences the audio production employs as well as the reader’s complete butchering of the protagonist’s last name, whose proper pronunciation was an important point in the first book.

Merkwürdige Halleffekte...

Geschichte und Sprecher eigentlich toll, allerdings sind regelmäßig merkwürdige Effekte auf die Erzählerstimme gelegt worden (immer, wenn gefunkt wird, aber auch bei Rückblenden, Traumsequenzen und inneren Monologen.) Meistens ist das nur irritierend, gelegentlich versteht man aber den Sprecher kaum noch. Ich vermute, das soll zur Atmosphäre beitragen, ich fand es leider einfach nur lästig.

Gutes Buch jedoch der Leser!

Leider hat bei diesem Buch der Leser gewechselt was mich bei einer Trilogie sehr stört daher der erste Stern Abzug.
Noch mehr gestört hat mich aber, dass der Leser nicht einmal den Namen des Hauptprotagonisten richtig aussprechen konnte. Daher der zweite Stern Abzug.

Great story diminished by audio direction

Great story. Sadly some sections have weird audio effects and reader can't pronounce Kovacs right!

Still a great story!

Takeshi is different here but on his bests nevertheless. The whole story again makes a shift from the previous part but everything holds together and the narrative keeps the listener in anticipation and tension.

Audible... HAVE SOME TECHNICAL MINIMUM STANDARDS

From a technical point of view part one and two were already quite bad. At least the narrator was very good. Just listened to the first minutes of this one:
- They changed the speaker to someone who cannot pronounce the MAIN CHARACTER'S NAME ("Covats?!")!
- They added artificial reverb to an audio book ... why?!?!?
Since I cannot understand a word of what the narrator is saying, I cannot listen to the story.
I will return the audio book immediately. I am very disappointed, since I really wanted to listen to the trilogy's conclusion.

please stop the audio effects

kofax... his name is not kovax... get familiar with the source material first.

also... these sporadic audioeffects such as hall and distortion make listening to this installment a pain... simulated phone-static is ok but obnoxious droning and almost never ending echo during flashbacks & the wailing of the narrator is just too much...

Amazing Story until the last second

I am absolutely thrilled by Richard Morgans trilogy. It is beautiful how subtle he introduces themes into the plot, which are controversy for us today. The future which he paints in the three books is dystopia and utopia at the same time. I do hope, that we will never experience a wildly capitalist society as portrayed in these novels. Apart from these thoughts, I recommend books for an exciting and easy to read adventure!
