Could have been so much more, but fell far short.

There was a lot to like about this book the mystery, the future society, and the world building.
There was also a lot that I found unappealing: the pontificating on God, religion, and the nature of heaven was all very shallow and trite; the cliche back to nature/virtue of hard work and suffering lifestyle vs. technological comfort and ease lifestyle; the terribly superficial "conflict" between conservative and liberal world views.
I kept reading because the mystery and the world building were so compelling. The main character was a bit of a knob.
