Adrienne Martini reviews ‘Matter’ for the Baltimore City Paper

Alongside some familiar musing on Iain’s bemusingly low profile in the US market, reviewer Adrienne Martini says in her piece for the Baltimore City Paper:

“Like most other [Iain] M. Banks books, Matter twists in completely unanticipated ways and offers up ampules of philosophy along with its plot. His characters – even the most minor – are fully drawn and fascinating. A reader can feel her mind twist around Banks’ more fantastic ideas and marvel at the complicated whimsy he creates. That alone is worth the price of admission.”
