short but twisted,
This review is from: Feersum Endjinn (Paperback)
I like Iain Bank's sci-fi, especially the twisted and unexpected, where you really have no clue where things are heading - such as this one! Even though to me it does still have the flavour of fairly classic sci-fi about it. It is one of his shorter novels, but still takes a long time to read - the phonetic bits slow you down. Actually I liked that, a gimmick maybe, but it also made it more immersive because it was hard work. It made the switching viewpoints (a standard story telling device) more intense.
For me, this was a "better than average" Banks novel. so, I thoroughly recommend it.
