I liked the differences in voice and point of view from different characters. It made for very interesting and sometimes funny reading. It does make you stop and thing about all that we take for granted and whether we are better off or not.
There were a few times when it got a little slow or bogged down in the political situation, but it all seemed fairly relevant to the situation and it never lasted long.
