I would recommend reading Felix and the Frontier first; its a short read, and when all the connections come into play with Simon of Space, you'll appreciate the links the author uses in his books.
Too many characters? Maybe.
Too much dialogue at the end? Definitely.
Did you fell empathy for the characters or were you merely an observer? An observer.
That is the book's trouble; an interesting story, but not well crafted enough for you to want a sequel.
Many interesting and well-developed characters are encountered along the way, strange and wonderful worlds and cultures are introduced, and a tremendous back-story is revealed. The story continues to get more and more complex, but somehow always in a manageable fashion. Revelations start to occur more frequently, sometimes jaw-droppingly major, but always as a logical step to the next part of the story. The conclusion is simultaneously deep, humorous, sad, and enlightening.
This is excellent science fiction that manages to instill (and maintain!) a sense of wonder up to the very end. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Brown's work.
