The show was very well executed and captured the spirit of the first book
by Richard Morgan - even if it took a few more liberties for the sake of
visual storytelling.

I would recommend to anyone who enjoyed the TV adaptation that they also
read the book and support the author who writes a lot of transhumanist

"For what purpose humanity is there should not even concern us: why you are
there, that you should ask yourself: and if you have no ready answer, then
set yourself goals, high and noble goals, and perish in pursuit of them! I
know of no better life purpose than to perish in attempting the great and
the impossible..." Nietzsche
