This review is from: Use Of Weapons (The Culture) (Paperback)
I cannot believe that people could not have enjoyed this book.
Mr Banks' sci-fi is breath-taking and I can only assume that he knows something us mere mortals do not about the universe.
I rarely re-read books but make an exception with the "Culture" series (Player of Games, Consider Phlebas, et al). Upon my second reading of "Weapons" I realised with growing dread near the back of the book that I had forcibly blacked out my memory of the ending as it was too hard to take. Going through the shock a second time was awesome.
I hope the author is proud to have created such a masterpiece and if this review gets just one person to invest the time to read this work of art then my job here is done.
