de Pierres, Marianne -- Dark Space

Have not yet finished.

The prologue has an asteroid miner discovering a weakly godlike space entity; also lots of wacky far-future tech-jargon of the sort that I enjoy. I bought the book on those strengths, and was rapidly disappointed by the story, which pushes the entity entirely offstage in favor of a bunch of Italian aristocrats squabbling over a mining colony. It's one of those "spoiled aristo gets life lesson in misery and shreds of compassion" novels, which I hate. (Imputations about my own social stratum are left as an exercise.) Also the POV keeps cutting to the (now-rich, erstwhile-) asteroid miner, in a series of plot asides that I'm pretty sure make no sense whatsoever. He's a spoiled jerk too.
