  1. Let me recommend you Richard K. Morgan’s Takeshi trilogy (Altered Carbon, Broken Angels and Woken Furies), and for some light entertainment Diana Rowlad’s My Life as a White Trash Zombie.

    1. Thanks for the suggestions! I read Altered Carbon several years ago and liked it, but I’m not a dedicated cyberpunk reader so I haven’t got around to reading the other books in the trilogy. Haven’t heard about Diana Rowland, will check her out!

  2. I like what you read. I have to catch up to you, LOL. I don’t meet many girls or guys who read as much as you (and I). We must be very boring people! Good!
