For the life of me I can't figure out what people saw in this novel. It was an unwieldy mess, not that believable a depiction of the near future, and not even a good political satire, which is what it purports to be. It is a boring and chaotic mess of a book and I wish I hadn't bothered to finish it. I have to admit I am not a huge Sterling fan in general -- but this is not one of his better efforts. Unless you are a die hard fan of Sterling, steer clear of this one.
