  Iain... You're odd. But I love you... Platonically only...

I agree with SpiderDac's comments, although I would say read Consider Phlebas first... I found Phlebas helped lube me up and ease me into the strange universe Banks has created, so I was ready for it by the time I read this and not just rammed into some seedy, dark and twisted cosmos. Awesome book though, no two ways about it one of the best I've ever read. Great plot, and great characters. Didn't see the end coming at all!! I'd love to know what Banks has been smoking though?!?

  Excellent intro to the Culture

This book is amazing. Well written in page turning terms and also in overall story and arc. One of the best of the Culture series (Iain M Banks no Iain Banks) and also not a bad one to start read all of the Culture as possibly the most accesible one.
