I read this book ages ago and if I’m honest I’m having trouble remembering the story that well...but I suspect I struggled with it a little. I read lots of Iain Bank's novels a decade or more ago, I got really into his writing style and eagerly awaited the release of his latest novel but I think this is the novel that I struggled to get into initially, my least favourite of his books to date. This doesn't make it a bad novel (note the 9 out of 10) but it was a slow starter for me. If I remember rightly once I got into it I couldn't put it down!!!

Of all of Iain Banks' books this is the one I have got on with the least. I think I read somewhere that it was his favourite - straddling his mainstream and sci-fi offerings, but I just didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would. Imaginative but confusing (for me).
My other half and his dad both really enjoyed it though.
