Actually that's more that just a rhetorical question - seriously, is it deeply important that I read the rest of the series first? Any fans of the Culture series should now feel free to advise me!
Avid reader, writer and music-geek living in Auckland with too many books and not enough shelves. I currently review books for NZ Booklovers, a site dedicated to all things book related - reviews, author interviews, articles, competitions and more.
