"A self-contained city above the Earth, an orbiting Utopia of 4,000 permanent residents. All of whom are about to learn that there is no such thing as Utopia." This description made me think that this book would be some kind of creepy dystopian novel, but I was severely disappointed in that aspect.

The concept was interesting, but with little plot, nearly no character development, and confusing/annoying/purple prose, the actual execution fell flat.

I was also disturbed by Roger. He was so obsessive and creepy. (view spoiler) That overly awkward ending did not leave a good "after taste" in my mind. It had enough good ideas and interesting parts to earn two stars, but I was not too happy with this one.
