Editorial Reviews

Review

"Incomparable entertainment, with fascinating and highly original characters, challenging ideas and extrapolations, and dazzling action... sheer delight"
(Kirkus Reviews)

"This rich, sweeping panorama of heroism and folly celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Culture, Banks's far-future semi-utopian society.... The action tumbles along at a dizzying pace, bouncing among a fascinating array of characters and locales. It's easy to see why Banks's fertile, cheerfully nihilistic imagination and vivid prose have made the Culture space operas bestsellers and award favorites." (Publishers Weekly)

"One of Banks' best Culture novels to date." (Booklist on The Hydrogen Sonata)

"It's fantastically good fun that throws in some big ideas about life, the universe and everything, and like the unabashed leftie that he is, Banks manages to get in there a few sizable shots at unthinking, dogmatic religiosity for good measure." (SciFi Now)

"Banks's charming prose and the scale of his imagination continue to delight Culture vultures." (SFX)
