Finches of Mars: conclusion

My earlier comments about this book still stand. It remained a book of ideas, lacking engaging characters.

There were a couple of almost bright spots where the book started to show potential, but for me that potential remained unfulfilled.

Maybe Aldiss tried to cover too much without giving room for development. I found the book was more like a lengthy plot development plan rather than a completed short novel.
