BookLender review by Dutch on 2007-11-26 10:53:19

Once again, narrator Todd McLaren is pitch perfect in reading this action-packed SciFi Noir story. This one is perhaps a little more violent and action oriented than Altered Carbon and is, in fact, a very different kind of story. So even though the cynical world-weary tone is similar to the other Kovacks novels, Broken Angels never feels stale or repetitive. Morgan's writing combined with McLaren's narration makes them one of the best audiobooks teams regardless of genre.
