i'm a big fan of his monster hunter series.not so much of the rest of his work. and, there are some other things i don't like. as for the insurance agent it's even stranger than you can imagine.Anyone read Larry Correia? Is he a good writer? I found Monster Hunter International on Amazon (US) for free and it's not bad so far.
While I agree the series can mostly be read in any order I think there is one subplot in Surface Detail that has an extra meaning if the reader is already familiar with Use of Weapons.One or two Culture books are best read in order but most are stand alone and that is certainly the case for Surface Detail. However it is a pretty weird (in a good way) book and probably not the best introduction to Banks' Culture books.
It's been a while since I read Surface Detail so I probably just can't remember that bit. The next in my re-read of the Culture books is Look to Windward, then Matter then Surface Detail. So I'm a few books off reminding myself!!While I agree the series can mostly be read in any order I think there is one subplot in Surface Detail that has an extra meaning if the reader is already familiar with Use of Weapons.
ah i'm glad you like it.the demon accords are good too. i'm a bit on the fence over the shadows of montshire series but it's not too bad yet.
I have been expecting this sort of reaction. I'm waiting to hear a few others to decide if I bother with it.So..... Ready player two... Didn't liked it. Feel free to make your opinion but for me it was a waste. A lot of poor rich Kids, obscure references and annoying writing
General opinion seems to be to start the series at number 3, Tooth and Nail, and go back to Knots and Crosses and number 2, Hide and Seek later on, just for completion.Going to read Let it Bleed by Ian Rankin. New author for me. Its Rebus book no° 7. I wanted to get hold of the first one, Knots and Crosses but this'll do as an intro to the author. Plus it's set in winter. I always like to read books in season for some reason.
