I couldn't finish it. I expected alien worlds, alien creatures, and the trappings of science fiction. instead this book seems to follow a modern US diplomat with a difficult foreign post, in a country with an uneasy treaty. as far as I've read, the aliens were never described (beyond being tall and dark skinned), and the planet seems completely terrestrial and contemporary. It might be a great book, I really have no idea. It's not much of a sci fi though.
