I'm a huge Iain M Banks fan, and this book has been my favorite listen on audible so far. If only there were more of his books here. Please please please add some from the Culture Universe.
Banks writes complex, thoughtful and challenging sci-fi.... exploring themes in which morality is curved, good and evil are never quite straightforward and the narration can be interestingly non linear. If you like your protagonists to be sometimes flawed while always interesting, and your antagonists sometimes sympathetic yet always vile. Take a ride with Banks.
Peter Kenny's narration is superlative. Many readers could easily subtract from the genius of Banks' writing. I found it difficult to imagine anyone adding to it, but Kenny does so, bringing the subtleties of the characters out quite beautifully with his range of voice and accent. Brilliant.
