Finished it. Not bad, solid Iain M. Banks/Culture fare, compleat with galaxy-spanning engineering marvels from aeons past, various layers of Involved interfering with each other and less developed species, drones, knife missiles, even an Orbital making a cameo appearance. Nowhere near as confusing as The Use Of Weapons, despite what he said about it.

I'd rank this in the top quarter of his books -- not as good as The Use Of Weapons, The Player of Games, or The Algebraist, but better than Look To Windward, Against A Dark Background, or Feersum Endjinn.
