    The obvious question you have to ask yourself (and the final chapter points you in this direction is “How much of Gurgeh’s life was actually his own? How influencing on him was the Culture? How much of his game-playing skill is “him”, and how much is his culture-contrived upbringing? Just how manipulative of it’s citizens is the Culture prepared to be?” 😉
