Another book with a good idea at its core, but where the execution is lacking... as if the author lost interest somewhere during the project. The lack of sympathetic characters would influence my rating negatively anyway, but the plodding picaresque story line followed by an overly hasty denouement provided lukewarm enjoyment at best. Which is a pity because the underlying ideas are worthy of a good space opera. Oh well.
