A fitting epitaph,

This review is from: The Quarry (Hardcover)
Not his best book. Perhaps by some way, as it lacks much of the complexity and intricacy of many of his other books. And yet... and yet... It's all about context. This is his final book, and given the subject matter and a plot that slowly twists and turns towards its denouement, you won't read a more moving novel this year. I don't think Iain Banks was in any way 'Guy' in the novel, but you get to the latter's 'after death' manifesto, and you see the real passion that inspired so much of the former's writing.
Anyway, I'm a hard-nosed b*****d, but it made me cry.
