The author imagines a fascinating human future in a balkanized solar system from Mercury to Pluto including a dystopian earth, but the story is weakened by inadequate character development in a slow story arc, frequently interrupted by tangential (sometimes thought-provoking) lists and descriptions of science, politics, and behavior. Wading through the blizzard of detail (that was mostly unessential to the story) became sufficiently frustrating that I skimmed the final third of the book to reach the final plod points -- I mean plot points.
