Better & Better,
This review is from: Feersum Endjinn (Paperback)
Well now, I've just finished reading this for the third time (in about 10 years) and I just love it more each time! The much maligned phonetic sections are no problem in our 'textspeak' times, you soon get used to it anyway. I also found it made the character of Bascule more endearing.
Warmer and rather less torture ridden than some of Banks other works which is definitely a good thing.
What makes this such a good read is the array of wonderful ideas and concepts on display. The far distant, but still recognisable future. The perfectly realised virtual reality of the 'crypt'. And the truly mind blowing scale of the mega-architecture. wholeheartedly recommended.
