‘The Hydrogen Sonata’ by Iain M. Banks

‘I Miss The Culture’
Score: 4/5

Iain M. Banks
£5.59

I miss the Culture and it still makes me a bit sad knowing that he’ll never write any more of these. Ah well.

It’s a nice story, not as convoluted as some of his, with the nice flavour you get from a slightly strange culture that seems inexplicably different in some ways. (It’s explicably different in plenty of other ways too.)

I’ve only got one other unread Culture novel now, and I’m putting off reading it.
