Happy Halloween!

Seen in a Corsica winery, last week.  No pumpkins, but let nobody say the French (well, the Corsicans, anyway) don't keep the spirit of the season.

 

And with that, I'll raise a glass to Moonlight and OB for hosting another fabulous Halloween Bingo!  I had an enormous amount of fun, and it was great watching everybody else's Halloween reads and comparing notes.

 

Thank you so much!

Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks (buddy re-read)
Use of Weapons - Iain M. Banks

Series: Culture #3

 

I'm still not a fan of this book, although the twist at the end made me less mad this time around. It actually starts off in a fairly promising fashion, as a kind of sci-fi romp that follows this guy skilled at war and who basically hires himself out as a mercenary. Sort of.

 

But then the story starts to get bogged down in itself, and the two interleaved timelines become less interesting. I have to say that the whole twist hinges on a few ambiguous lines. Also that last chapter (from the "old" or background timeline) is a cheat.

 

I'm going to get to hash it out with my friends and complain to my heart's content so it's not all bad, right?

 

I'm also counting this for the "Genre: Suspense" square for the 2018 Halloween Bingo.
