Action scenes are fun in films Camilla Send a noteboard - 12/09/2010 08:45:22 PM
less so in books. Certainly the way Banks does it. Jesus Christ, the man presents it as a slow motion event. Always. I was fed up with it in the first fight, and now it is really beginning to get to me. There is good stuff in between, but I wish he would stop writing like an action flick.

It is strange that you should say it is a reaction to the American sci-fi of the 70s - 02/09/2010 11:11:17 PM 769 Views
