Tell you what, in Excession when we met Grey Area aka Meatf*cker... I was genuinely nervous about that ship. Banks had built the Minds so well as this sort of jolly techno-god friend who's always there when you need him, and can do just about anything for you, and keeps you safe and gives you whatever you like. And then suddenly you find yourself in the company of one and find that he doesn't like you, in fact he doesn't like humans generally... and he fills himself with torture devices and weapons and god knows what else. I found that creepy and more than a little frightening.
