Inhaltsangabe

Sharrow was once the leader of a personality-attuned combat team in one of the sporadic little commercial wars in the civilisation based around the planet Golter. Now she is hunted by the Huhsz, a religious cult which believes that she is the last obstacle before the faith's apotheosis. Her only hope of escape is to find the last of the apocalyptically powerful Lazy Guns before the Huhsz find her. Her journey through the exotic Golterian system is a destructive and savage odyssey into her past, and that of her family and of the system itself.

©1993 Iain M. Banks (P)2012 Hachette Digital

"Few of us have been exposed to a talent so manifest and of such extraordinary breadth." ( The New York Review of Science Fiction)
"There is now no British SF wirter to whose work I look forward to with greater keenness." ( The Times)

I’m getting to old for this

Peter Kenny is as always a superb narrator. The story is what I dislike about this title.
The main character is simply too passive. She does nothing. Everything happens to her. Everyone loves her and the world revolves around her. But she has nothing to give to it. She may as well be a rock, carried around by her loyal team of stereotypical misfits.
I think Ian is a great writer and writes great, thought out stories and conversations. This book contains little of those things. Mostly it’s describing the immature behaviour of the stereotypical misfits that worship the main character for no apparent reason.
