John asked:

Galaxy! This is some dry space! I will finish it, but space! it's making Great Expectations and Cloud Atlas look like page turners! I'm sure it's important science fiction, but it reminds me of the cinnamon challenge. Does it get better?

PaulESchilling It's supposed to be read for the ideas, not the prose. A lot of the older SF writers got their start writing for the pulps whose audience included a lot of immigrants still learning English so had to keep it simple.
Troy Grice Agreed. No. It doesn't get better...but I have 20 pages to go.
