This review is from: The Steep Approach To Garbadale (Paperback)
This is the first Iain Banks book I have read. Like other reviewers Nothing much grabbed to start with but I always like to persevere with these things. I found the main character fairly likeable but again like other reviewers found a lot of the content a bit pointless.
Having said that I did feel that the book was leading to something good but (and it is rare for me to get these things right) I had already guessed what the twist was fairly early on. It seemed almost too obvious which is why I persevered to find out what the outcome was going to be.
All in all, disappointing. I am assured by friends that his other books are excellent reads but based on this I am reluctant to give them a shot
