A short read (for me) but an excellent book. I read this first because it was the book of the month selection for my group, and we were told that one doesn't need to read the first book before this one.

At first, trying to get my brain around Culture was hard, but as the book progressed, I got a better understanding of what was going on. It was a good way of being able to look at some of the worst of our society while framing it in an alien society.

(view spoiler)

All in all, a great book, and I am tempted to move the rest of the books higher in my read queue.
