    I've not read any of the Culture Novels, is it a good idea to start at the beginning?
    I'd definitely start with Consider Phlebas, but it's up to you where you go after that. Some of the later books refer back to Consider Phlebas - particularly Look to Windward, so it's better to read it first. It's still a favourite of mine. The lead character isn't as overly stylised or cool as characters in IMB's later books are.
    I'd start with Consider Phlebas too. It's one of my favourite Culture novels definitely. Player of Games gives you more background on Culture society but Consider Phlebas sets the tone nicely. Plus it kicks ass.
