All in all, the novel is packed with exciting characters with feisty personalities. Zor was one of my favorites, a man who’s searching for questions. Milenna, is a strong intelligent woman who is trying to navigate her life in Night City. Liam, is a professional policeman who wants to bring justice to the city but finds that corrupt politics always plays a big role. Seems like something hasn’t changed. If anything, Albert is the most flawed character in this novel. His backstory is interesting enough that it’ll engage you in it. Multi POVs help bring this world alive.
A glossary would have helped in between to help casual readers who might not have heard about this world, as sometimes the novel goes into full depth into extra secrets that you might not find anywhere else. As a gamer, I played Cyberpunk. I love the stories it tells. And recently update 2.0 came out which overhauls the game to such an extent, that this novel is an extension of what I’m reading here. I loved the writing that popped out every little detail of offices, and how people live, everything about it is just awesome. The writing was really solid. This is a true adaptation of the video game’s world and setting. You really have to read this now!
