This book reminded me of many SF stories from the pulp magazine era. And in this case, I'm using "pulps" in its pejorative sense. The science was just made-up stuff, the plot aspired to a social commentary that it never reached (or hadn't when I gave up after 50% of the book), and the basic premise was just silly. [Audiobook note: The narrator seemed to get his tongue stuck on the Russian and Latin accents of two of the characters. It made for hard listening.]
