"Black Genesis" is the second volume in the "Mission Earth" series, and unlike the first volume, "The Invaders Plan", it actually takes place on Earth.
Soltan Gris, our narrator, is even more cynical than before. But the so-called "satire" really consists of rants against the government and psychology and is tiresome instead of funny.
The pace is not as slow as in "The Invaders Plan"; this book is about 150 pages shorter. But it still feels slow and lacking direction; the story doesn't really seem to be going anywhere. If I hadn't already bought all ten volumes, I don't think I would bother to continue reading the "Mission Earth" series.
