I’m a huge fan of books with inventive use of language. Like Iain Banks’ other work, this one is compelling for its story and the journey of the characters. But the story of the semi-literate Bascule is what really sets this book apart. It’s reminiscent of Russell Hoban’s Riddley Walker, Will Self’s The Book of Dave, or even Gene Wolfe’s Shadow of the Torturer with its richness of language.
