The Hydrogen Sonata

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

The challenge is to find the time and space to appreciate Banks’ brilliance.

My travel schedule for the last 5 weeks or so has been tough going and I have often opened The Hydrogen Sonata late at night after a 17-hour day and then has to re-tune myself to the epic stage and numerous characters.

Having reached the end of the journey – it has been worth it.
