Walking On Glass

by Iain M. Banks

Little, Brown And Company | April 1, 1992 | Trade Paperback

Walking On Glass is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Her eyes were black, wide as though with some sustained surprise, the skin from their outer corners to her small ears taut. Her lips were pale, and nearly too full for her small mouth, like something bled but bruised. He had never seen anyone or anything quite so beautiful in his life.''

Graham Park is in love. But Sara Fitch is an enigma to him, a creature of almost perverse mystery. Steven Grout is paranoid - and with justice. He knows that They are out to get him. They are. Quiss, insecure in his fabulous if ramshackle castle, is forced to play interminable impossible games. The solution to the oldest of all paradoxical riddles will release him. But he must find an answer before he knows the question.

Park, Grout, Quiss - no trio could be further apart. But their separate courses are set for collision.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Banks It is surprising (or is it just me?) how few people choose Walking On Glass as their favourite Banks novel. It intertwines three totally separate characters and plots within a brilliant puzzle that links together in the end. Walking on Glass follows the same fantastical paths as The Bridge, but adds the dark family relations of The Crow Road and Wasp Factory, along with the mind-bending wierdness of Banks's S/F novels. This is the best Banks!
