1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly boring, 5 Nov. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surface Detail (Culture Novels) (Paperback)
I chose this book for our book club thinking it sounded like the kind of sci-fi I like, and there appeared to be a strong woman at the centre. Talk about disappointed. It's the kind of sci-fi that put me off reading sci-fi for years having read one that was all robots and machinery. Page after boring page of descriptions of machinery. The woman was so disappointing. The central premise of the book sounds fascinating but after 240 pages I couldn't take any more. If the whole story had been severely edited and condensed into about 300 pages, it may have grabbed me but life is just too short to put up with this. Having said that (and nobody at book club liked it - it received our only collective 0/20) I do know people who love his culture novels so give it a go - you may just like it.
