The novel is written in the first-person point of view. The novel is written as though Takeshi Kovacs, is the narrator. The narrator is both telling the story as it happens, but also provides glimpses into the past about events that brought the characters where they are today.

The point of view of this novel is an intimate point of view that allows a reader to connect closely with the main characters. The reader cares what happens to the narrator and to the other crew members on the mission. The point of view also allows the author to inject his own opinions into the narration and to expand on the events taking place around the main characters without having to move out of character or interrupt the flow of the narration. Hence, the point of view works well with this novel and the author's writing style.
