I was somewhat let down by this novel. I still really enjoyed it, but I was expecting it to be exceptional, which it was not. My main complaint is the writing style; it is written in a lunar dialect, which sounds bizarrely lacking (I have no better way to explain it). This writing style really annoyed me, and it certainly prevents me from rating this book five stars. However, the story itself is interesting and well-developed, as is the setting in which it takes place in. As far as science-fiction goes, this is a fairly believable story, and the political and economic situation behind the revolution is realistic, resembling a futuristic mercantilism. Overall, a realistic and enjoyable read.
