drifting towards mediocrity,
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Crow Road (Hörkassette)
After an explosion of great novels (Wasp Factory, Walking on Glass, the Bridge), Banks's non-SF fiction began to fade. First came the self-indulgent prog-rock fantasy Espedair Street, then the silly Canal Dreams. With The Crow Road, Banks really drifts into mediocrity. This is a plodding tale of an annoying family with a dark secret that really is too far-fetched to believe. I've been reading all of Banks's works chronologically, and it seems as though he saves all his best ideas for his SF books, leaving the cutesy drudgery to his mainstream fiction. If you are new to Banks, your best bet is to read his earlier works.
