    Epub Iain M. Banks Å Epub The Algebraist Epub à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk algebraist pdf, The Algebraist PDFI’ve been reading through all of Banks’ novels these last few years mostly focusing on The Culture series and working my way outward through his other “M” novels and into his “non M” writing This is my fourteenth Banks book and my second non culture “M” novel Banks’ had such an interesting way of writing his novels so that the real story unfolds in the background the whole time mostly hidden He did this in Consider Phlebas and again here in The Algebraist The foreground story is of course engaging and action packed in the typical space opera sense but the interesting story for me is what’s happening on the periphery of the main narrative and it of course deals with Artificial Intelligence human rights religion and the nature of realityI have a little headcanon that allows The Algebraist to be a Culture novel even though officially I know that it isn’t My evidence is very thin and involves something so tropey that I’m glad it just can’t be It definitely
