The books of Iain Banks have been part of my life for more than twenty years and, now that he has died, there feels like something of a void – the thought that there will be no more, especially in the Culture universe, is a sense of sadness (although his The Hydrogen Sonata has yet to make it to Thailand so I still have that to come). Based on obituaries and interviews, he was also an engaging character who will be much missed and, of course, his opinions on the world and on politics were nearly always correct. Curiously, this final book concerns a character who is dying of cancer while the author also was, although he was unaware of this at the time.
