This is what happens when a writer decides to write philosophy rather than allowing philosophy to shine organically from story and characterization. So what begins as middling weird homage to Jules Verne turns into a gawd awful mish mash of Stalinism, kabbalah, and a soupçon of Rosicrucianism. It's a shame, because the prose style is generally interesting, but the person who writes characters like this has no real interest or insight into humans.

Started out as a good sci fi and ended as a philosophical/sudo-scientific mess. And of course it had the token crazy Christian guy who kills a bunch of people. I feel like the writer had a bunch of strange ideas over a decade or so and then jammed them together the best he could.
On top of that the ending left you with... blah. But maybe you like that sort of thing.
