Summary:

The Culture -- a human/machine symbiotic society -- has thrown up many great Game Players, and one of the greatest is Gurgeh. Jernau Morat Gurgeh. The Player of Games. Master of every board, computer and strategy. Bored with success, Gurgeh travels to the Empire of Azad, cruel and incredibly wealthy, to try their fabulous game. . .a game so complex, so like life itself, that the winner becomes emperor. Mocked, blackmailed, almost murdered, Gurgeh accepts the game, and with it the challenge of his life -- and very possibly his death.

    This is the second time I’ve read this book. I enjoyed it even more than the first time. Iain Banks was truly brilliant and ahead of his time. He effectively described smart phones before there were even pocket-sized cell phones?!? And there is so much more to his work. Over all the books I’ve read I can honestly say that Dean Koontz expanded my vocabulary and Iain Banks expanded my mind! It has been years since I first read this book. I’ve learned, gathered insight, accrued experience and all that opened aspects of this story to me that were previously closed.
