4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Better Culture Novels, 11 Feb. 2014
By 
This review is from: The Hydrogen Sonata (Culture 10) (Paperback)
One of the better Culture novels, all be it a long and complicated story that will be better understood on a second reading. There's a slowish bit just after the start but the second half was powerfully distracting and the tale's conclusion is superbly crafted.

The index of characters at the end was a worthwhile addition, but it looks to be little more than the author's own notes and I personally would have benefited from more detail. As ever, the number of different characters popping in and out of existence was large and maybe not all were developed as much as I would have liked.
