it was amazing
bookshelves: 2011
Read from January 27 to August 28, 2011

Written nearly 20 years ago, I found very valid comparisons to today's current political and economic fracturing - as if Banks himself a profit and we currently live in the countdown to year 0. I had suspected the ultimate villain correctly, but Banks provides enough twists, turns, gunfights, surprises, and general misdirection and mayhem to keep me guessing and entertained till the end.
