[Novel] Player of Games (Iain M. Banks)


A novel about a prodigal game player that gets involved in a game upon which rides the fates of empires.

Positive: Negative:
An interesting, vast setting The plot feels a bit slow and isn’t always as enthralling as it could have been
Solid, interesting story The story doesn’t come off that important in the grand scheme of things of the overall setting
Thought-provoking on systems of government The rules of the super complex game are so ambiguous I never understood how it worked
