Finally got around to starting in on this, and I'm not sure I read it when I bought it (it had a military canex pricetag on it so it was probably bought while away on course, and the spine doesn't appear to have been bent back at all).
I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised at how closely the writing tracks with what I remember feeling about the series. The series is far enough in the past that I don't remember specifics, but actions in the book "feel" like they should have been in the series if they weren't already.
At it's core it's a sci-fi film noir detective novel.
As you guys have likely gleaned from my posts, I'm not a fan of a lot of what I consider to be "gratuity" these days in shows. I don't mind stuff that makes sense in the setting, but sometimes it just seems like tonnes of extra stuff gets thrown in "just because we can" and for the titillation factor!
Curious with this book compared to the series. Does what they included in the series line up with the book or did they go a different way with show?
