I think this book of all the culture novels both has the least to do with the Culture and centers the most on a single protagonist. It's just great science fiction. I wish I could give it 4.5 stars though because I don't know if it deserves a full 5. It did keep me interested throughout and Peter Kenny is one of my favorite narrators, but the lead character was just a little hard to relate to. I guess it might say more about me than the books that I can relate more to the ship Killing Time from Excession than to a human character here :)
