    " I liked the writing and some of the speculative ideas. The clumsy monologues on economic freedom sounded like dated Libertarian Party oratory, had the subtlety of a claw hammer, and killed the narrative for me. "

    " So, so, mildly entertaining but wouldn't read it again. "

    " I read for pleasure and after around 100 pages of this book it was no longer a pleasure. I think books should take you away, yet this venerable author never got me off the launch pad. I was happy when I read reviews that many others had the same problem, and amazed that some loved it. "

    " Interesting. It jumped around a bit, which was annoying until I got used to it. It was interesting, just not my normal preferred reading material. I'm more of a fantasy than a scifi. "

    " this s a confusing book, but it is also very good "

    " It's a slow slow read. And for the majority, it's more a future-set historical and political thriller. The last 150 pages make up for it, though, and actually integrate the sci-fi setting into the speculation very nicely. "
