Consider Phlebas is done

chasm_city_cover_amazon.jpgJust finished Consider Phlebas today. Well it was a nice trip. This is the very first book in the Culture series so it was interesting to read with what this Culture series started. Nice unpredictable plot, that proper Banks’ humour, very sci-fi and exact description of the technology and machines and combat. This all makes this book very believable and immersive. I’m looking forward reading his other sci-fi books.

After I checked my mood on what to read next, I decided to stick to sci-fi and choose next Alastair Reynolds book – Chasm City. I was greatly impressed by the first book – Revelation Space, so I’m expecting no less interesting story from this one.

    You have good taste in sci-fi Von ;)

    Iain M Banks and Alastair Reynolds are two of my favourite proper sci-fi authors, along with Greg Egan. Hope you enjoy them. Chasm City and Redemption Ark are both good, Absolution Gap is better still…

    Shamb, it was you who recommended them all to me, so this is just result of me being good skoolboi :) These are really good books though.
