Robinson gets a bit silly here and there, but it's worth the purchase. The usual interesting story and good ensemble, though "guest" characters are a bit wobbly this go-round, and the premise occasionally made me itch.
AUDIO: The reading would have been quite adequate except for some insane -- literally insane -- music stuck in at odd moments. It was a sort of cross between country-drunk and MGM's idea of hula-hula music -- just right for Yorkshire, right? Awful! Each time the producers assaulted me with this twanging slop, it utterly shattered everything the author and narrator had built up. The worst part is ... why? Why do such an awful and destructive thing when it was so totally, completely pointless?

This is another great Banks novel. Someone else mentioned the weird music. I agree - it's jarring and unnecessary. Doesn't belong at all. What were they thinking?
