[books] Hydrogen Sonata

The Hydrogen Sonata (Culture, #10)The Hydrogen Sonata by Iain M. Banks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ian M. Bank's latest work is another Culture novel, with all the elements that make culture novels fun - androids, avatars, knife missles, Minds, GSVs. Includes the introduction of another pan-galactic species or two and contrasts between AI-life and bio-life. Its a fun read overall, though not the best Culture novel ever. If you're a Banks fan or a Culture fan, you should definitely read it. If you've never read Ian M Banks before, I would suggest Player of Games or Surface Detail before this one.
