bookshelves: science-fiction

Many people think that this is one of the best of Banks' Culture novels, but I beg to differ. I have now read Consider Pheobus and Player of Games and I liked both of those better. This book is the best written in terms of prose style, and the characters are the most developed, but as science fiction it is a bit mundane. Player of Games is still my favorite. And Consider Pheobus captures more of the grandeur of a post scarcity, super science utopia.
