An alright piece of cyberpunk with a few interesting concepts that raise it above the masses of other books out there. Definately the best in this series, as the later books make the protaginist into a thoroughly unsympathetic character and weaken the narrative as a result.

Quite enjoyable cyberpunk romp with some interesting ideas but I think the fact that I didn't finish it suggests it maybe isn't as gripping as it should be.

I also quite liked this! The concept of renting someone elses body is a mind blowing one. OK the rest of it is a bit cliche cyberpunk but I think that concept alone carries the book to 4 stars
