    The Player of Games Epub ☆ The Player eBook ã player free, games kindle, The Player mobile, The Player of Games ePUBThat´s nothing than one of the best allegories on human culture ever written described from the point of view of an objective observer of a far higher developed civilizationI had the luck to read this probably his best novel as one of the first out of Banks´ amazing universe and in contrast to the other often very complex eclectic and multi plotted novels it stays focused on the main premise to show us how freaking average and dull we are I guess Ba

    The Player of Games Epub ☆ The Player eBook ã player free, games kindle, The Player mobile, The Player of Games ePUBA good book is entertaining tells an interesting story and occupies your mind while you’re reading it A great book does those things but also changes you changes the way you think about things changes the things you think about When you finish it you’re not the same person you were at the start The Player of Games had this kind of effect on me This book is a Trojan horseWhen I’m heavily invested in a book I tend to fit in a chapter everywhere I can often alternating between the physical book and audiobook depending on the situation I find myself in I remember reading The Player of Games for the first time amid a period of domestic responsibility with not much uninterrupted time to sit down with a book I particularly remember listening to the audiobook while walking rows of blueberries on a small farm in Tontitown Arkansas hoping to pick a gallon’s worth of berrie

    The Player of Games Epub ☆ The Player eBook ã player free, games kindle, The Player mobile, The Player of Games ePUBUPDATED REVIEW 2nd read in 2015even ingenious the second time around The Player of Games is taken to the Empire of Azad to play the greatest of games the game is Azad is the Empire of Azad is the US and the UK and all such toxic empires in a civilized culture all empires must fall the game is feints and surprises and moves within moves; the game is the past that must be broken on the wheel of the future Banks brings all of his customary elegance intelligence humor and angry frustration at the stupidity and short sightedness of humanity he understands the allure but still seethes at the very thought of brutality let alone brutality as an ingrained governmental program or system or as a way of life for any so called human much like Banks I am on the side of the AIsUGLY OLD REVIEW 1st read in 2010view spoileran often brilliant allegory it is interesting to compare the rather spare uality of this novel with the luxuriou

    The Player of Games Epub ☆ The Player eBook ã player free, games kindle, The Player mobile, The Player of Games ePUBThis was my first book in Iain M Banks sprawling Culture series I have been reading a lot of sci fi and fantasy lately because for some reason that's all that sounds interesting to me but I have to admit it is very annoying knowing that every book I pick up is the first in a Usually that blank is trilogy except when it isn't or it really isn't And while there may be lots and lots of Culture books they are all standalone stories with a beginning and an end You can read one published in 1987 and one published in 2010 and it won't make a difference This is very soothing to my nerves So anyway the Culture I wanted to read this series because of a Goodreads review I came across for Excession which noted that half the book is smartass back and forth between two sentient artificial intelligences I love stories about wiseacre supercomputers; in my book HAL 9000 is the hero of 2001 A Space Odyssey and all the humans just get in the way of the computer in The Moon Is a Harsh M

    The Player of Games Epub ☆ The Player eBook ã player free, games kindle, The Player mobile, The Player of Games ePUBThis was the second Culture novel I'd read after Consider Phlebas I’m trying to read them in order Well publication order in any caseSo I’ll come right out and say it if you are a fan of Space Opera you should be reading the Culture novels They vary a lot stylistically and thematically but they’re all pretty damn cool and very very clever Banks managed to juggle sense of wonder elements with intrigue almost effortlessly Not to mention some gnarly political commentaryI read somewhere someplace sometime that people have likened The Player Of Games to Ender's Game but I'm not sure I agree There is a 'game' element in both books obviously even the titles suggest that but that was where the similarities ended for me I have also learned possibly from this same vague indeterminate source t
