Well I got just over the half way point and decided to finally quit this bore fest. I had actually wanted to quit reading it at the 200 page mark but I thought it might improve... I was wrong. I loved the first 100 pages in as Greg opens up a new World for the reader. It's an interesting idea too and I would have loved to have seen this idea explored better. Sadly Greg blabs on and on with how bad the cold war is getting and I don't want to spoil anything but nothing surprised me in regards to the out come of this war so that whole sub plot was a waste of time for me to read and I just kept losing interest. The characters are pretty bland too and I didn't care about a single one. Arg, I could go on but basically my mind just kept wandering while reading this.
