Charles Kerchner, October 30, 2013 (view all comments by Charles Kerchner)
It was an OK book to read. Most of the book deals with the main character, Zakalwe - and the other dozen names he goes by, and the wrestling with his emotions. Almost all the book has little to do with weapons, war or fighting but the prevention of the use by himself and the strange powerful civilization called the Culture. Strange format since the odd number chapters are progressing forward in time while the even ones are moving backwards (lots of anti-foreshadowing).

Use of Weapons is a challenging book, both in its structure and its subject matter. It's about war: the necessity of it, the uses of it, the sorts of people it requires and creates. It is sometimes exciting, sometimes brutal, and in the end emotional, memorable, haunting.
