I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
It was just a bit too boring.
Too elaborate, too many explanations.
Not the most original world-building, more run-of-the-mill space opera terrain. But I have no idea why so complicated then.
And no action so far. So I'm skipping this for some re-reads of old favourites.
