Customer Review

on 18 May 2000
This book for me, sums up all the authors work- challenging but enjoyable. If one is willing to traipse throught the series of interlinking stories, one will be rewarded by what becomes a thoroughly engrossing read. The book owes much to Edinburgh and it's environs and is, in my view, to my city, what Alasdair Gray's "Lanark" is to Glasgow. Indeed Banks acknowledges that he had this novel in his mind when penning "The Bridge". Overall, this is my favourite Banks novel- a fine portrayal of different levels of consciousness and a further improvement on his also laudible earlier efforts.
