    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUB“Living either never has any point or is always its own point; being a naturally cheery soul I lean towards the latter”“In practice people don’t believe for good reasons anyway they just believe and that’s it like we don’t love for good reasons we just love because we need to love”And then there were no Culture novels left at all and I was left with an Iain Banks shaped hole in my existence If that sounds melodramatic it’s because it is But honestly I am depressed as hell to be finished with this massively sprawling series of 10 nearly standalone novels set in a shared universe Iain Banks was a god damned brilliant human being and I feel that than anyone else I’ve read he truly understood the human condition and was able to convey his thoughts on the matter with a fluidity and subversive humor about the whole mess that will probably never be matchedHe

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUBThere's this eternal debate about the extent to which you should be looking at the author's life when you try to understand their work and The Hydrogen Sonata is a fine example It's the tenth and last volume in Iain M Banks's Culture series it's about the death of a major Galactic civilisation and Banks himself died not long after the book was published So really the book must be about Banks and the Subliming of the Gzilt must be about his own impending death While I was reading it I was convinced this had to be the cas

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUBBanks seems content to spin out increasingly fractal world building episodes while adopting an ever and affected and feathery writing style filled with ualifiers and digressions and dangling clauses becoming in each new work ever tangled in conscious or perhaps unconscious – imitation of the complicated ever ualified speech of his most famous creations the great ship Minds whose all too self aware multi layered and consciously ornate dialogue forms the greater part of this novel when

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUBThis has been a hard review to write Not because of the book itself about which I have only nice things to say but because as he recently announced Iain M Banks is dying of inoperable cancer the sort of general systems failure which makes a mockery of notions like intelligent design He's in good humour about it considering but this is still far far too soon—he's just a scant few years older than I am It's been a significant shock to the system as well for his multitude of fans among whom I most certainly count myself—as Goodreads' own statistical wizardry will confirm Banks is the author I've read and reviewed most often since coming to this site back in the early days of Galactic civThe Hydrogen Sonata is a Culture novel part of that vast and complex tapestry of future history with which Banks revitalized the subgenre of space opera and in

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUB“Is it true your body was covered in over a hundred penises”“No I think the most I ever had was about sixty but that was slightly too many I settled on fifty three as the maximum Even then it was very difficult maintaining an erection in all of them at the same time even with four hearts”Iain M Banks’s latest Culture novel is representative of almost everything that has made the series so great There’s enlightened interference hedonism spectacular setpieces diversely characterized Minds space battle black humor and outlandish foolishness see the above uote The book like Surface Detail and Matter is packed with detail from Banks’s imagination yet avoids the pacing and bloat issues that those two books suffered fromThe Culture for those who don’t know is a post scarcity civilization which features in many of Banks’s sci fi novels One of its most notable features are its Minds wildly powerful AIs with colo

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUBWhile Mr Banks retains his ability to assemble brilliant imagery of the far future I have to admit that this book was disappointing It's a bunch of small ideas stitched together instead of a big idea mixed with a bunch of small ideas For example The Player of Games Surface Detail Excession Matter and Use of Weapons all have big ideas that animate the central plot And by the end of it you understand what has happened and why the mystery is mostly unveiled and you enjoy the puzzle The Subliming of the Gzilt is not by itself enough to carry this book to the end And unlike the others I felt like he left a bunch of loose ends in this one and didn't really wrap up the story well at allSpoilers ahead1 He mentions th

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUBSeveral years ago I decided not to read any Culture novels I felt the whole idea was thoroughly explored by the end of the third book and that all of the subseuent ones represented a decline from that peak With the sad early demise of Banks I relented; there were only two I hadn't read and there won't be any Some time later I've read the penultimate Culture novel a

    The Hydrogen Sonata PDF/EPUB × The Hydrogen Kindle - hydrogen free, sonata book, The Hydrogen epub, The Hydrogen Sonata ePUBOne my favorite in the Culture series which means I rank it with The Player of Games Look to Windward and Excession Below are a couple uotations that struck me as I read them Below that is my little paean to the series as a whole written before I started the book I'm not up to the task of writing a lengthy review at the moment but I will say that this like Excession is probably not the best introduction to the series As I read the final 100 pages I felt that delightfully bittersweet sensation of wanting to reach the end but not wanting to finish As always Ban
