I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Look to Windward

Cover of Look to Windward.

Look to Windward tells the story of a reluctant counter-Culture agent and wasn’t really my cup of tea. While I appreciated that we get to see more of the regular, day-to-day life of people in the Culture universe, and that we also get the outside perspective on the Culture, too little happened and the story crawled along. A bit after the halfway mark, things got a bit more exciting, but overall it wasn’t one of the better Culture installments, I’d say.
