This drops you into the middle of a situation, where the reader must figure out the setting, and details are explained as if you are already familiar with the background. It's unclear who is good or evil, or what everyone's motives are, and often it's unclear what is even going on. So, just like real life.
The future Earth, the alien worlds, and most of the characters were unpleasant. The politics that drove the plot were tedious. Again, just like real life. However, it was enjoyable to read about someone navigating through the situation.
