A very disappointing book. I can’t detect any traces of Terry Pratchett in the writing, which I found rather amateurish considering Stephen Baxter’s long bibliography.

The concept is interesting. The dialogue and plotting are boring and formulaic. Lobsang is a bit obnoxious and uninteresting. The entire subplot with the Greens is superfluous, and the same goes for Officer Jansson’s story. There’s no ending, simply an abrupt cessation.
