I guess this was supposed to be a story about consumption or consumerism or something, but it turned out to be a story of what happens with virtually unlimited energy and really, really bad management. Apparently once everyone in the world has ready access to more than they could ever want, that is still not enough.

Someone in this world seems to think that production itself, and not quality of life or access to goods, is the real measure of economic success, so production must continue, until class is turned upside down, with the poor forced to consume the excess. The solution to that problem is as ridiculous as the problem itself, and after that the world pretty much falls apart, as you might have expected from the beginning.

Thats not a spoiler, its what the book is about.There were some interesting moments, but mostly I was bogged down by the complete absurdity of it. I set the book down and finally picked it up to finish it about four years later when I finally got over the stupidity.
