Personal Thoughts

The premise of Altered Carbon is great. A sci-fi murder mystery, in a dystopian world, with the ability to travel into past and present events. That is a pretty cool. Unfortunately I did not make it far in the series as the high amount of course language, sexual content and violence is not so cool.
