Brilliantly Characterised, 10. April 2000
This is definitely the best of non-sf Banks that I have read (them all apart from Complicity). True, the plot is plodding, nothing really happens much for the first third of the book, but the characters are some of the most engaging, colorful, witty and loveable ever written. It is so easy to identify with them and their struggle with their families and their lives. No part of the story is cliched, it is all completely new and refreshing. The struggle Prentice (lead narrator) has with his father is one most of can identify with.
