I found the plotting and characters very weak. Halfway through I just realized that it wasn't getting any better and got off the elevator. The world building left too much unexplained: what are the politics in this world? who comprises the government? why does the richest, most powerful man in the world have to run around and do everything himself? who elected all these creepy people to office? and so on...
The reason why I hanged in there for so long before eventually giving up is because of the reader,Simon Vance, who always manages to bring to life everything he does.
There is nothing as great as discovering a new book, a new voice. and I always enbark on the journey full of hope. this time the elevator doors closed on my head and crushed it.
Skip this book.
