On the list to try someday:
Culture by Iain M. Banks (9 novels, ss collection)
So - recommendations, opinions, other series to share?
I tried Consider Phlebas
and can honestly say it was very weak. I started off OK and then quickly went downhill fast. I wouldn't bother with it.
I've read that one, actually, and had mixed feelings. But I've been told by many people that the rest are different and much better, so it's been on my list to try again for a while.
