Iain M. Bank's Culture novel "Matter" is terrific

It's a slog at first, like watching two Warhammer 40k players slowly lay out their armies, and I put it aside many times. But around 40% in the picture starts to take shape, and like an Aubrey novel, the last 80 pages are incredibly satisfying. I found myself stopping every few pages to draw out the pleasure of finishing it. Available at Amazon.
