Having never read the Altered Carbon novels, I adore the show.
I dunno. I thought the world building was the best part of the show, they messed with the lead character's backstory though, and I can't figure out why exactly. Maybe because they figured it would be too dark otherwise. The envoys for example really ARE the bad guys in the books. (They were/are government special forces, not some hippie rebels)
Still a good show, I liked it a lot. But yeah the novels are much better.
