I loved the speculationLife love sex conspiracy extremely high stakes this novel really pretty much had it all b

    Epub Excession PDF/EPUB ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ excession download, Excession MOBI Foolish childMake all hasteA BDO novel taking place in the Culture universe? Will the law of diminishing returns apply? There is so much weirdness and wonder in the Culture already how much value can an artefact add to the heady mix? Possibility Culture universe not well suited for BDO sense of wonder stories Possibility Dilution of impactLet’s try and review this thing The drone felt calm thinking as coldly and detachedly as it could for those few moments on the background to its current predicament It was prepared it was ready and it was no ordinary machineThe novel wasn’t uite what I had envisioned but that doesn’t come as much of a surprise It deals predominantly with the reaction of the Culture and specifically a collective of ship minds to the appearance of the Excession of the title also known as an Outside Context Problem There is a lot of maneuvering and build up as events are put into motion to deal with the artefact and

    Epub Excession PDF/EPUB ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ excession download, Excession MOBIThe Culture series is one of the most beloved among today's sf readers possibly the most beloved but I don't have any hard figures to back it up so I'll leave that hyperbole out for now Certainly some entries in the series are popular than others based on the average ratings and online discussions The Player of Games and Use of Weapons are generally held in high regard Inversions and Matter less so As for Excession it is one of the popular ones top 4 I think and I can see why The Culture vs a BDO yes please That was my reaction upon reading the book's synopsis which I shall fastidiously avoid writing as always These things are never than one click away on Goodreads after all Apart from being a field day for BDO fans Rendezvous With Rama and whatnot this book also largely focused on The Minds the series' sentient AI entities which are much than supercomputers am

    Epub Excession PDF/EPUB ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ excession download, Excession MOBIExcession Too complex for meat based life forms to understandExcession is the fourth book in Iain M Banks’ CULTURE series I’ll assume you already know the far future decadent post scarcity intergalactic empire of the Culture dominated by its mostly benign AIs known as Minds and its trillions of citizens some human and others exotic It’s a great invention a vast and limitless space for Banks to explore via the Culture’s Contact and Special Circumstances divisions especially the interactions with non Culture empires like the Idirans or in the case of Excession the AffrontExcession probably arose when Banks was sitting at his computer thinking – wouldn’t it be cool to have a Culture story centered on Minds rather than humans? But how can you easily depict the incredibly comp

    Epub Excession PDF/EPUB ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ excession download, Excession MOBIMusic something from Slowdive like Souvlaki Space StationLike putting my feet back into the river this felt like I had not taken any break from reading this series This one was fun to read that can be said So there's a mysterious ship that apparead many years before now it is back and everybody seems to want to check it out prod it talk to it see if there's anything new and benefitting in its secrets and even attempt to destroy it There's also a conspiracy going onThis novel concentrates on the ships with names like Honest Mistake Killing Time Not Invented Here Sleeper Service and Grey Area which is also known as Meatfucker for its tendency to sometimes mess with creatures' heads There's a few Culture people like Ulver Seich who lives a kind of Marie Antoinette life something like that Sofia Coppola

    Epub Excession PDF/EPUB ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ excession download, Excession MOBIconnection between literature and video games is one of my favorite topics I was thrilled to get to write for Torcom about one of the best science fiction books I've read Excession by Iain M Banks and its connection to Sid Meier’s Civilization which along with Romance of the Three Kingdoms was one of the most addicting games of my lifeIf Use of Weapons was a psychological investigation into the world of the Culture Excession is a philosophical excavation featuring the AI Minds going to war The Culture have come across an ancient artifact that is “a perfect black body sphere the size of a mountain” and a “dead star that was at least fifty times older than the universe” Its disappearance and reappearance decades later spurs off a string of events that make for one of the most frenetic entertaining and metaphysical science fiction narratives I’ve readChanging my review score to 5 I'd had some reservations about the ending and the human arc initially but I have to admit

    Epub Excession PDF/EPUB ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ excession download, Excession MOBIGood but definitely not my favorite Culture bookUnlike a lot of the other Culture novels this one is definitely for those that read a lot of harder SF for lack of a better term Challenging and rewarding but not all that character focused More about ideas than anything elseThe number of different mindsships communicating with one another made it very easy to get lost but I grasped the plot pretty well for the most part I think this book might be better on a second read
