Is it wrong if…

… I find most hard sci fi really boring?  I’ve been working my way through Mission of Gravity for the past couple of weeks and it is soooo slow. I know it’s a classic and all, and the whole world-with-700-times-our gravity thing is interesting, but the book is basically one long as-you-know-Bob.  And the total lack of characterization doesn’t help either.  Am I going to get my geek privileges revoked for this?  Is this like the equivalent of being a gay man who lacks the ability to properly coordinate colors?

Still badly jet-lagged.  My body seems to be having an argument with itself about what time it ought to be.
