Very short review, just for laughs
I sent my dad "The Algebraist" for Father's Day this year, he's only read one other Banks book, here's a very short review of IMB to date:
"Also, thank you for The Algebraist. I've only read a few pages, but I'm starting to think Ian Banks is one sick puppy, between the "Chairmaker" in Use of Weapons and the Archimandrite in The Algebraist."
I think I'll send him "The Wasp Factory" for his birthday....
at the risk of hijacking the thread, could we try the "six word review" thingy here?
*although i'm gonna cheat and use seven)
