I kind of know what you mean, the characters are very cold and it's hard to remain engaged at times.

I found it was worth sticking with, I enjoyed reading it through to the end.

I am someone who really likes character development in novels and my criticism is that there is no real character development, but the ideas in themselves kept me going.

[Edit] the pace of the novel does pick up after a bit.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
