Definitely post your thoughts about it; although it's not one of his Culture books I'm still interested in how you find it. I've been meaning to start the first Culture book sometime, and his recent death makes me even more inclined to do so.
I'm nearing the end of the second in the Night's Dawn trilogy (damn they're long books - 8 hours remaining, another 30 for book three). Really good though, but I'll still read a few shorter books next.
If it wasn't for disappointment, I wouldn't have any appointments.
