Read full description of the books La Sonate Hydrogène:

La Galaxie est peuplée d'un grouillement de civilisations plus ou moins avancées parmi lesquelles la Culture tient une très bonne place. Lorsqu'une de ces civilisations, humanoïde ou autre, atteint un très haut niveau de développement, elle choisit généralement la Sublimation, c'est à dire qu'elle accède collectivement à un niveau supérieur de l'être. Personne ou presque n'est jamais revenu pour en parler ou ceux, très rares, qui l'ont fait se sont montrés incapables d'en dire quelque chose d'intelligible.

Une forme de transcendance ? Peut-être. Mais physique puisqu'il s'agit de passer aux dimensions supérieures que nous annonce la théorie des cordes et dans lesquelles s'ouvriraient une infinité de possibles que les Non-Sublimés ne peuvent même pas imaginer.

Les Gziltes, humanoïdes, alliés de la Culture mais qui n'y ont jamais adhéré, ont atteint ce stade et se préparent à une Sublimation générale. Mais les choses ne sont pas simples. Malgré leur très haut niveau de civilisation, les Gziltes ont développé une espèce de complexe de supériorité : dans leur plus haute antiquité, un Livre Sacré leur promettant un destin manifeste leur a été remis par les Zihdren, une civilisation depuis Sublimée qui leur a servi de Mentor. Ce Livre Sacré avait une particularité: il contenait des prévisions scientifiques qui allaient se révéler exactes. De là à se considérer comme une espèce élue, il n'y avait qu'un pas que certains Gziltes ont franchi.

À la veille de leur Sublimation, un vaisseau Zihdren se présente qui doit délivrer un message. Il est détruit. Puis est détruit également le Quartier Général des Gziltes.

Tout cela ne concerne apparemment en rien la Culture. Mais quelques-uns de ses vaisseaux et de leurs Mentaux s'inquiètent du conflit possible et apprécient peu le funeste sort fait à l'envoyé Zidhren. Parmi les Gziltes eux-mêmes, certains veulent savoir la vérité. Une jeune Gzilte, Cossont, virtuose avec ses quatre bras (dont deux rajoutés) d'un improbable instrument de musique conçu pour exécuter une pièce célèbre réputée pour être presque injouable et selon certains inécoutable, la Sonate pour Hydrogène, est envoyée à travers la Galaxie remplir une mission impossible : retrouver la trace d'un humain, un certain QiRia, qui prétend être aussi vieux que la Culture et savoir quelque chose sur le Livre Sacré des Gziltes.

Read information about the author

Ebook La Sonate Hydrogène read Online! Iain M. Banks is a pseudonym of Iain Banks which he used to publish his Science Fiction.

Banks's father was an officer in the Admiralty and his mother was once a professional ice skater. Iain Banks was educated at the University of Stirling where he studied English Literature, Philosophy and Psychology. He moved to London and lived in the south of England until 1988 when he returned to Scotland, living in Edinburgh and then Fife.

Banks met his wife Annie in London, before the release of his first book. They married in Hawaii in 1992. However, he announced in early 2007 that, after 25 years together, they had separated. He lived most recently in North Queensferry, a town on the north side of the Firth of Forth near the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge.

As with his friend Ken MacLeod (another Scottish writer of technical and social science fiction) a strong awareness of left-wing history shows in his writings. The argument that an economy of abundance renders anarchy and adhocracy viable (or even inevitable) attracts many as an interesting potential experiment, were it ever to become testable. He was a signatory to the Declaration of Calton Hill, which calls for Scottish independence.

In late 2004, Banks was a prominent member of a group of British politicians and media figures who campaigned to have Prime Minister Tony Blair impeached following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In protest he cut up his passport and posted it to 10 Downing Street. In an interview in Socialist Review he claimed he did this after he "abandoned the idea of crashing my Land Rover through the gates of Fife dockyard, after spotting the guys armed with machine guns." He related his concerns about the invasion of Iraq in his book Raw Spirit, and the principal protagonist (Alban McGill) in the novel The Steep Approach to Garbadale confronts another character with arguments in a similar vein.

Interviewed on Mark Lawson's BBC Four series, first broadcast in the UK on 14 November 2006, Banks explained why his novels are published under two different names. His parents wished to name him Iain Menzies Banks but his father made a mistake when registering the birth and he was officially registered as Iain Banks. Despite this he continued to use his unofficial middle name and it was as Iain M. Banks that he submitted The Wasp Factory for publication. However, his editor asked if he would mind dropping the 'M' as it appeared "too fussy". The editor was also concerned about possible confusion with Rosie M. Banks, a minor character in some of P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves novels who is a romantic novelist. After his first three mainstream novels his publishers agreed to publish his first SF novel, Consider Phlebas. To distinguish between the mainstream and SF novels, Banks suggested the return of the 'M', although at one stage he considered John B. Macallan as his SF pseudonym, the name deriving from his favourite whiskies: Johnnie Walker Black Label and The Macallan single malt.

His latest book was a science fiction (SF) novel in the Culture series, called The Hydrogen Sonata, published in 2012.

Author Iain M. Banks revealed in April 2013 that he had late-stage cancer. He died the following June.

The Scottish writer posted a message on his official website saying his next novel The Quarry, due to be published later this year*, would be his last.

*The Quarry was published in June 2013.
