Left me totally hanging. The Old Wives’ Tale (Arnold Bennett,1908)86. Very much like The Wasp Factory. The Wind in the Willows (Kenneth Grahame, 1908)32. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts.

Interesting musings on some theoretical issues. One of Nabokov’s most famous novels, The Defense is based on the life story of the writer’s friend Curt von Bardeleben, who committed suicide in 1924.

As an ex-Christian I really enjoyed that. The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner (James Hogg, 1824)93. Use of Weapons - beautiful twists and turns; required a lot of thinking to put the story together and connect the dots; great depth of character in Zakalwe. Contains all the elements that make The Culture work - Minds, drones, high-level plotting, and a protagonist who is very much the typical Culture human, totally in over his head. There but for the (Ali Smith, 2011)98. Ex machina basically held the same meaning as Excession to me. But as you will soon discover, Laymon very rarely has only one problem in his books, staying true to form he brings in some fascinating characters, one of which being a sociopathic killer ex-husband who slices his way through the plot adding more thrills to the already frightening, twisted tale. Old Filth (Jane Gardam, 2004)70. The Sea, The Sea (Iris Murdoch, 1978)60. Great Expectations (Charles Dickens, 1861)3. Under the Volcano (Malcolm Lowry,1947)97. Has its ups and downs, but overall I didn't find the moralizing too interesting and the story doesn't make up for it. But if you do, it has its depth. OTP: Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s cocker spaniel Flush, the other most literary dog I know. The Heart of the Matter (Graham Greene, 1948)71. Possession (AS Byatt, 1990)48. Maybe the best beginner's book, not too deep into Culture tech and world, but not totally out of it either. Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. The main character of this heartwarming novel is Timofey Pnin, a 50-something Russian-born associate professor living in the U.S. It brings up the question of how other sci-fi civilizations live for millions of years.

Cold Comfort Farm (Stella Gibbons, 1932)91. Parade’s End (Ford Madox Ford, 1924-1928)56. David Copperfield (Charles Dickens, 1850)7. It's hard to make a list out of this.

Loving (Henry Green, 1945)57. Stephen King has published an oeuvre of close to 100 books. Consider Phlebas is the wrong book to start with because it's really more of a critique of the Culture, delivered before you truly understand it.
