Reviews aren't stellar, but it sure does look amazing. So how is this Skitch?

So far, awesome and complicated and Blade Runner and problematic. Its kind of hinging on how it ends.

The problematic part is putting an Asian lead into a white guy's body, but depends where it goes. They've at least mentioned it a time or two that he doesn't like it and [character who knew Asian body] says "You're looking worse for wear" (or something of the sort), so they aren't ignoring it. I'm not familiar with the books, but I hope theres a purposeful body switch by the end.

It is complicated, or at least it is to this dad who is shot by the end of the day. If I look at my phone once, I miss something. People die and get new bodies, then people jump in and out of other characters bodies, plus a who-done-it murder mystery, and hundreds of years of backstories.

I am digging it though. Other than that slightly uncomfortable itch of nationality swap, but I think it will be okay if he swaps at end. He was forced into this sleeve.

I totally forgot this existed. Since I finished the Expanse, I'm going to start this up.
