The Hydrogen Sonata (A Culture Novel) - Iain M. Banks I think it's time to admit--with two of the recent Culture novels sitting half-read on myvirtual shelf for anywhere from 6 to 36 months, and pleasant-but-unexceptional responses to the couple that I've finished--that I'm perhaps full up on the series and should set 'em aside. The recent stuff isn't by any means bad, and I loved the first five or six. But I often grow restless with series. That appears to be the case here. For now, any way.
