I like the setting. The book takes place in a community of engineers, divided into various factions that each have their specialties, as well as internal rivalries.
The main character has potential (which I don't think is fulfilled). I imagine her as a brave and optimistic girl, willing to take on any challenge.
Okay, on to the bad stuff:
The love affair is pointless and boring. I mention this first because the book mentions it first, so obviously it's supposed to be important or at least interesting. However, good love affairs in books are supposed to have some sort of struggle, of which there is none, and should be relevant to the plot, which it is not. It's basically "Oh, hey, you're handsome, let's be lovers."
The bad guy is stupid. Doesn't even really seem like a bad guy, just a misguided fool. It's not very believable that he has ended up in a position of power.
It's anticlimactic. The plot just sort of fizzles out in the end, with nobody really winning. The machine that the plot has centered around turns out to be pretty useless, and nobody seems to care.
I would recommend this to those who are impressed by creativity.
