Great value for money,
This review is from: Feersum Endjinn (Paperback)
I've read all of Banks other books and this one remains my favourite by a long long way.
Half the fun of this book is working out what's going on and where exactly it's going on which took me a good few chapters at which point I was just hooked by the plot and the wonderful character Bascule and his phonetic spelling which is both highly entertaining and also offers an interesting perspective into the world he guides you through.
If you're the type of reader who prefers to have everything spelt out for you clearly whilst you just sit back for the ride then this is probably not a book you'd enjoy but for everyone else you will find you become quickly absorbed in the plot and eager to see what happens next.
The ending of this book is a highly amusing massive understatement and quite possibly the best ending to any book I've read.
