A brilliant book hidden inside a merely average one. The first 200 pages are dissapointingly slow, and add little to the book, but Banks finally gets there at the end

Highly enjoyable and extremely well written this took a while to get into but was well worth it in the end. I got the feeling it was built around the idea of the Dwellers but that is not in any way to its detriment as they were superbly constructed characters. There were some really excellent momnets of humour in this book two which had me laughing out loud at points.
