Any additional comments?

Overall I am a big fan of Brin, I own practically his hole collection and was glad to hear of a new book from him. But this book I could not get into 6 hours into it and no hope or redeeming characters to follow. Just allot soap box standing about how bad humans are for polluting. I will quote the book "It is not smart to bleep in your own yard" and I hole heartily agree. But this book paints a picture that I just do not believe we are stupid enough to create or the earth that fragile. Maybe I am wrong. Either way, I doubt I can bring my self to finish this book.
