Smug above all else. The author is very impressed with his own knowledge of literature, and would like you to be impressed as well. And while there's nothing wrong with knowing literature, half of the conversations between characters seem like transcriptions of lectures the author went to during his second year at college.

Although there were bits of the universe that were interesting, I found the characterization to be weak and the characters themselves to be unsympathetic and dull. I gave up about half-way through because I just didn't care about what happened to any of them.
