The writing is sublime (as usual); the story and character deeply disturbing and guaranteed to make you fall in love.
A wonderful, complex, frightening, unforgettable book. Surely not for everyone, nor "just for fun" (though it Is compelling-compelling...) But, everyone Ought to read this book, and get whatever they may from it--- it is so rich. Again, as usual, for Banks. However, this is darker--- even than the Sweet Hereafter, in that it is very... viscerally disturbing; that is, by comparison The Sweet Hereafter is devastating, but comprehensible to Western/US minds.
There is something at once foreign and so-close-to-home about the Darling--- it is terrifying, and, I feel, truly art.
