    Paperback Ý Matter eBook Ì matter mobile, Matter PDFEPUBThis is one of those horribly complicated books that is simultaneously strong and weak in the same exact areas at the same time groanI mean it starts off strongly with fantasy type trials and tribulations in the empire a king dying and his son being supplanted by the king's best friend taking over the kingdom Pretty standard but then the whole other part of this novel is chock full of purely wonderful heavy SF ideas that isn't entirely obvious at first but then be

    Paperback Ý Matter eBook Ì matter mobile, Matter PDFEPUBThe eighth book in the culture series If you're reading this you're familiar with the Culture and you don't need yet another review telling you how fantastic this particular entry is All I'll say is that it's no exception and stands right up there with all the othersTwo uotes that really stood out for me from this fantastic book“Behave honourably and wish for a good death He’d always dismissed it as self serving bullshit frankly; most of the people he’d been told were his betters were uite venally dishonourable and the they got the the greedy bastards wanted while those that weren’t like that were better behaved at least partly because they could afford to be “War famine disease genocide Death in a million different forms often painful and protracted for the poor individual wretches involved What god would so arrange the universe to predispose its creations t

    Paperback Ý Matter eBook Ì matter mobile, Matter PDFEPUBThis is a book I really wanted to like and failed I like Iain M Banks style I like his willingness to run risks to give you the whole punch And in this book he barely deliversThe book are 500 pages of set up and forty pages of resolution and not a very satisfying oneToo many characters doing not very interesting things in utmost detail and then the interesting parts are just glossed over Add wooden and not very new in his books characters when part of his magic is making great inhuman characters This time even the humans are flatThe only real interest are a few imaginary locations which are well thought and wel

    Paperback Ý Matter eBook Ì matter mobile, Matter PDFEPUBThe 8th book in The Culture series ie Matter was a big let down for me because it had pretty interesting ideas like Shell word and Nest world but Banks spends so much time exploring those ideas and giving you info dumps regarding those ideas that the story of the book takes a back seat in the whole book Also he uses a lot of complex names for his characters which after some time becomes uite irritating as you do not have index on audio book to remember al

    Paperback Ý Matter eBook Ì matter mobile, Matter PDFEPUBI'd go as far as saying that this is the 3rd best novel in the series so far after The Player of Games and Use of Weapons in that order I was blown away by the uality of the story the interesting and well developed characters and the sheer scale of the novel Four stars highly recommended but if you haven't read Culture novels before I recommend just starting at the beginning Consider Phlebas is still the weakest novel in the series but it is the first one and sort of a rite of passage After that it's nothing but excellence If you're into science fiction at all these are must reads
