To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

Player of Games (The Culture)

The Player of Games  - Iain M. Banks Third time I read this book. The odd thing about Iain M Banks books is how I remember very little about the story line or characters - which allows me to re-read the books almost as if it were the first time - and get the same enjoyment from it. I do find he gets a bit obsessive - sometimes about space battles, sometimes messaging between minds, and in this case about playing games - but while I do speed read over those bits it does not detract from my enjoyment at all... and I don't award 4 stars lightly! The memory thing is odd because I remember his Iain Banks books very well (although I do have to speed read through the torture bits).
