This is a fabulous book that takes place in the many worlds model of quantum theory (also the setting of other recent books: Neal Stephenson's "Anathma" (http://bibliocommons.biblioottawalibrary.ca/item/show/1396368014_anathem) and Greg Egans two recent short stroies "Singleton" and "Oracle" (http://bibliocommons.biblioottawalibrary.ca/item/show/1463247014_crystal_nights_and_other_stories) which I also highly recommend)

This is possibly Iain M. Banks best work since Excession.

Questions:

In this novel is the "Concern" a kind of mutated image of the Culture?

Are Bank's episodes of Christian Terrorism an accurate mirror of the kind of distorted discourse that surrounds Islam in the developed world?
