    Some wild animal might tear his throat out. Against a Dark Background has a style and a mood familiar to readers of Banks's Culture novels, but it itself is not a Culture book. His voice sounded respectful. While the story may not be as strong a story as Use Of Weapons, this is still better than a lot of the stuff you will find out there. Sharrow's half-sister is now imprisoned there for attempting to loot their treasury, with the price of her release being the Universal Principles. She visits her half-sister Breyghun who is held prisoner in the Seahouse, a monastery run by the Sad Brothers.

There is, however, a waitlist of nearly a century to receive a new body, since the construction of new androids has been banned for centuries since they're one of many ways Golter has gone to war with itself. If you give Against a Dark Background the time and attention that it deserves, I think you'll find that it is worth it. New Author?

    This book is not one of them. My second caution is that this is Banks, which means that the story can be quite dark. Ha -- just my little joke. They demand the Gun is turned over to them and not the Huhsz. What's not to like?

Against A Dark Background

There's enough odd gallows humor and personal courage mixed in to make the ending enjoyable despite a typical, predictable, and very annoying wounded protagonist sequencebut this is not a book that's going to leave you feeling optimistic about the world.

Bookends : The online epilogue puts us back on a cable car, just like the one Sharrow's mother died on.

Let's have a look down here. I also found his handling of Sharrow's vulnerability to be rather unpleasent: for much of the length, the main character is toyed with and tortured by two horribly sadistic characters and it almost feels like Banks is enjoying it.

Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, 17 1 And of course the beauty of a laser is, there's no recoil. Molgarin was an actor employed to try and make Sharrow feel gratitude towards Geis. Do not expect a happy ending, though. The reader can figure out quite a bit along the way, but Banks is not going to provide the catharsis of jigsaw pieces coming together, and the engineering reading that SF normally encourages is going to be frustrating.
