Yeah, I share the disappointments expressed by brossa. The commentary on how the new tech affected society as a whole was completely dropped after one recurring character got rescued from "Ameristan". How did the whole world react to the virtual afterlife? They couldn't all have been committed voyeurs to it. Not with more and more planetary (and orbital) resources being devoted to sustaining it.

Interesting, but ultimately unsatisfying. Not for failing to reach conclusions but for abandoning so many interesting points which were raised in the beginning.
