This didn't appeal to me. The tension in the book is mostly in political and bureaucratic maneuvering.
The space battles were compelling enough to keep me listening, but even they were cool, all about positioning of fleets of ships. This is a book for people interested in maneuvering.
The reader has an impressive number of voices. Though some were cartoonish, I appreciated the variety. It was easy to keep up the large cast of characters.
The story is incomplete with a very unsatisfying ending.
