This conspiracy to incite war is a fascinating subplot, because it makes me wonder is such a story is possible with human proponents.Only Peter could take such a challenging book (those that have read the book will understand) and turn it into an fantastic adventure into the culture universe. Part of the appeal of Iain Banks, aside from the politics, is the wealth of his inventiveness.A mysterious artifact appears mysteriously in a remote corner of space, beside a mysterious, trillion-year-old sun from a different universe. Shadowrun Legends: Who Hunts the Hunter Like he JUST pulled that trick and now he does it again throwing in a sex change to really keep us off the scent? If you want your mind to be completely overworked, and are into Sci-Fi and abstractions, then give it a go.

The Culture is a paradoxical society, both remarkably flexible yet also very rigid in other ways.I have to admit that I listened to the audiobook and had trouble following the plot details, as well as the large cast of AIs, aliens and humans.

What we have is a straight forward adventure Genar-Hofoen who lives with the Affront and aggressive expanding civilisation and their bid to claim a space artifact called the Excession.She sounded kind of interesting. The Divine Talisman I set myself a task after he died that I would read all of, both the Sci-Fi and more contemporary works. The Excession of the title is a perfect black-body sphere that appears mysteriously on the edge of Culture space, appearing to be older than the Universe itself and that resists the attempts of the Culture and technologically equivalent societies (notably the Zetetic Elench) to probe it.
