Takes you into a whole new area of the Culture, where the AI minds discuss the problems that are occuring since the presence of an unidentified object.

It is riddled with Banks' usual wit, imagination and depth. This gives many insights into areas of the Culture I'd not wondered about before.

The is much intrigue with many twists along the way. This was book I'd heard many goods things said about it, and was not disappointed. You've heard books described as un-put-downable, and a page turner; well this is one of those.

I love a book with a highly complex plot, as it makes me think all the more while reading. I guess some people will find that makes it hard going, and thus fail to get the full magnitude of such a mindblowing story.
