  1. The book has a lot of amazing concepts, but these are brought down by some big problems The protagonist is apparently designed specifically to instill disgust, sympathy, admiration, and hate in very unequal parts And that just didn t work for me The protagonist also had REPEATED near death experiences that in the context of the book strained the suspension of disbelief to the breaking point Almost dying once is one thing, but almost dying over and over and over Sorry, but no Finally, the book co [...]


  2. After reading all the Culture novels, it s time to do a review on each one This is book 1 of 10.Let s start with The Culture Extremely advanced utopian conglomeration of pan humans, aliens, and machines enjoying all life has to offer facilitated by the most advanced AI s in the galaxy There s many goings on.Consider Phlebas is the first of the Culture series, and I feel the most experimental Banks shows us the peace loving Culture at what they subsequently consider the worst part of their histor [...]

  5. I am reading all of Iain M Banks Culture novels again , they do bear repeat viewing.This novel introduces the concept of the Culture which is why I ve marked it slightly higher than I think it deserves The main protagonist is a an unlikeable character whose hatred for the Culture just never rings true and once you ve read further Culture novels his view of the Culture is even unsustainable.Before getting to the meat of the story there are a number of ludicrous and at times tedious escapades that [...]
