    After finishing this, Inversions is now tied with The Player of Games as my favorite in the Culture series.It s definitely the most subtle of the Culture novels so far so subtle in fact, that I fear a lot of readers aren t grasping the scope of what it is about I would suggest only reading this one after having read a few other culture novels prior and in close succession it is very, very subtle but absolutely brilliant.Told from the perspective of two very different characters, one a persona After finishing this, Inversions is now tied with The Player of Games as my favorite in the Culture series.It s definitely the most subtle of the Culture novels so far so subtle in fact, that I fear a lot of readers aren t grasping the scope of what it is about I would suggest only reading this one after having read a few other culture novels prior and in close succession it is very, very subtle but absolutely brilliant.Told from the perspective of two very d...

    I have to say, first off, that every single review I saw of this book online even ones as short as a single line gives away something you are not supposed to know until the very end, if you figure it out at all These details that they spoil are not exactly essential to the plot, but one was spoiled for me and I think the novel lost some of its tautness as a result and the one that was not spoiled I was very glad wasn t spoiled because it was a minor mystery I spent the first half of the nov I have to say, first off, that every single review I saw of this book online even ones as short as a single line gives away something you are not supposed to know until the very end, if you figure it out at all These details that they spoil are not exactly ...
