The OriginalThe Original by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let's quickly get past the old cyberpunk themes and the Noir atmosphere for one second and just appreciate how thoroughly enjoyable this novella by Sanderson and Kowal really is.

I mean, for one, it's Sanderson and Kowal. Quality will be in the cards, regardless, with smooth reading and seemingly effortless storytelling. On the other hand, it's a world a lot like Altered Carbon with edited reality-perceptions, a total Murder Mystery sensibility, and great tech invasions.

Using a clone of the murderer to catch the murderer is all kinds of delicious, too.

Highly recommended.
