Aah, the Banksian Oddesy continues...

Good so far. I think the Doctor is not all she seems... :hmm:

However, she seemed a bit ineffectual for what she actually is.

One of my favourites. Doctor's nature slightly telegraphed but it's necessary so you get it I think.

I can't really work out what level of technology the world of Inversions is at at the moment. Getting in to it though. I like the Bodyguard character.

The bodyguard, yes.

Now that I think about it, it isn't she so much as her employers that are ineffectual.

Finished. What a great book.
I think if you didn't have some prior knowlege of the Culture, you might be a little confused with the goings on at the end with the doctor, but with a sense of the Culture, there's so much to this book. Fantastic.
