The Player of Games – Iain M Banks

I am re-reading this book. It is a few years since I first read it but I recall it as enthralling at the time. I hope it has retained its charm. It’ll be nice to read something good after the recent couple of duffers.

This is an earlyish Culture novel. All the better for it. It has all the charm and novelty of the Culture without the latter violence and brute force. It flows very well. One of my favourite Culture novels, much better than the recent ones. Banks could write without resorting to violent vulgarity. Certainly it’s on my I’ll have to read it again list.
