Haven't finished the book as of yet, but I find it interesting that, at least as far as I've gotten, the only protagonists are not human. Does this make a difference? Could the same story be written with a human protagonist. Or, is it possible to write from the perspective of a true alien, a member of a different species? Are these protagonists people? Are they human?

Why does Banks create the perfect utopia and then choose to write about the dark side?
