I've enjoyed reading this author's previous novels, and so I looked forward to reading this new one. Initially I was not disappointed, for there is action from the beginning, and an interesting plot. Unfortunately, as things go on there is so much philosophical-type discussion among the characters that it tends to dominate the pages, and I slowly began to lose interest, even when exciting things began to happen. Perhaps it's just me, but there seemed to be an extremely huge hole in the plot that made the ending of the book completely implausible. The world created and described by the author appears to be a good extrapolation of today's conditions, but that's not enough to rescue this work.
