Ooh, I didn't know there were books! I will read them after I've 
finished the TV series. I can comment on that, even though I haven't 
read the books yet. First I heard of it, I tried it, and my impression 
was: Wannabe Blade Runner meets wannabe Dark Matter, and fails to live 
up to either, so I stopped watching. A couple of years later, I gave it 
another chance (possibly because of a comment on here, not sure), and 
persevered past the point I had quit earlier. I warmed to it, and ended 
up liking it. So now just at the beginning of Series 3, looking forward 
to what happens next.

If anyone else was put off by the weak Blade Runner vibe at the 
beginning, I can say it gets much better. Worth persevering with.

So thanks, Bill, for alerting me to the fact that there are books. I 
already want to read the Altered Carbon books that I never bothered with 
before, but now have an interest in since seeing that TV series.
