I’ve come to this late in the day I know. I’ve not read any of Iain M. Banks books before. So I decided to start with this book as I like long series, and apparently this is just that. I got the first book as an audiobook as I like listening to stories. So far I’m really impressed. I’m really interested and I’m looking forward to the whole story.
It makes me think of Dune in some ways, although that’s probably a little unfair as I’ve not really even started in to the series as yet, but from what I’ve heard so far it makes me think of that epic, and I loved Dune.
