This story is more socio-political drama than military sci-fi (and, thus, unlike any of the others I've read in this series). Miles is more mature and the topic is more mature and the people are more mature and... I didn't like it.
I read these books for a fast, fun and frenzied look at people not so different than us living in worlds very different from ours and what I got in this book is mostly moralizing (oh, how bad it is to value cryo-preserved bodies for monetary gain instead of... well, not sure what happens in a society with stacks of dead people waiting to come back) and boring (like I care about the soap-opera activities of Jin and his pets? what does that have to do with anything other than to show some "human" side to the story).
Certainly it's not the light-hearted, fun and resolved Miles storyline I was expecting. I don't want someone else's morals, but thanks for the offer.
I wish the last 100 pages had been written like the last 500 words - at least then it would have had some pacing and angst.
