    Paperback Ù Look to Windward PDF ´ Look to PDF or look pdf, windward download, Look to pdf, Look to Windward ePUBIe look to change look to the future look forward etc In the introduction this book was dedicated to the Gulf War veterans and that seems very appropriate after finishing itIt deals primarily with PTSD suicide revenge apathy and the effects of trauma; the true cost of war both societally and individually It accomplished this while also somehow being the most humorous novel in the series so far In a lot of ways it is a direct seuel to the first Culture book 'Consider Phlebas' even taking its name from the same line of the infamous TS Eliot poem 'The Wastelands' It is a much much better story The of this series I read the difficult it is for me to pick a favorite It seems that each entry becomes a new favorite in a different way I think that sounds a bit trite but it really is accurate Reading the culture novels has established Banks as my new favorite author as well as

    Paperback Ù Look to Windward PDF ´ Look to PDF or look pdf, windward download, Look to pdf, Look to Windward ePUBBack to Iain M Banks’ phenomenal Culture series of space opera set in a post scarcity universe where humans are the most powerful known species Well not really the humans but the massive AI entities originally created by humans thousands of years ago It is uite unusual for humanity to sort of be the top dog this is one of the most unusual features of the Culture universe Banks’ Culture setting bucks the current trend of dystopian fiction In this post scarcity society all of humanity have the AIs catering to our every whim Conseuently humans have become decadent self indulgent and uite ineffectual The AIs run everything fortunately they are loyal to and very protective of the descendants of their creatorsBooks in the Culture series are standalones and do not need to be read in any order Like most Culture book Look To Windward has a complicated

    Paperback Ù Look to Windward PDF ´ Look to PDF or look pdf, windward download, Look to pdf, Look to Windward ePUBheavy heavy themes done with a light and benevolent touch the topics on display include suicide and suicide bombings terrorism genocide imperialismcultural colonialism the nature of war the afterlife and feature a loveable cast of pretentious robot drones adorable and often furry alien creatures and one very melancholy Artificial Intelligence VAGUE SPOILERS the last four chapters are jaw dropping in scope moving from an elegiac double suicide i teared up to a mind boggling check in with minor characters set millions of years in the future to a vicious and literally gut wrenching display of retribution to a surprisingly wry ending complete with a snappily ironic gotcha moment of role reversal awesomegood stuff on its own; amazing when considered as just one piece of the author's Culture novels my favorite one so far

    Paperback Ù Look to Windward PDF ´ Look to PDF or look pdf, windward download, Look to pdf, Look to Windward ePUBAmazing My second Culture novel after The Player of Games and I think I'm at a point where I'm going to be ravenously devouring them Like many others have mentioned this is a novel about loss and mourning thinking back on the events of the book not much actually happens but Banks uses enough narrative shift and experiments with perspective that it always remains fascinating Part of the joy in reading these books is just for the world building honestly And as always his aliens are a delight; the airsphere chapters and behemothaurs are some of the most interesting things I've ever read The cast of characters was solid and I was always happy to learn about them and the societieshistories attached to themAnd bonus one of the near final chapters had me in almost constant tears sitting on a bus in public Beautifully written Beautifully done
