Look to Windward - Iain M. Banks

Whacked story or 'space opera.' Many parts of this were really fun - but it took me months to read this, piece by piece.

Page 335 is where this got really interesting. The last 80 pages, or so, were quite good. Up until then, I just wasn't compelled. Although, there's cool stuff throughout about sublime worlds and the Culture... it's worth the read, but great it isn't. I cannot say that I'll be running to read a lot more Banks, mystery or otherwise.

Okay - the huge space going critters and the Minds, as well as the orbitals, were all really cool concepts... there's actually a lot to like about this book.
