The narrative flow suffers frequently from random changes in character point of view. One paragraph will be from James' view, the next from his friend or even an enemy. Occasionally POV even shifts mid-paragraph or mid-sentence. This, combined with the sometimes overly-flowery and superfluous language, can make the action difficult to follow.
Some reprieve is had during quiet conversations between James and his new friend Robert, and the development of their friendship is heartwarming. At the same time the two men get to know each other, however, almost all the women in the narrative are treated rather poorly. Most are reduced to simple and highly overused tropes--the helpless damsel, the nurturer, the lover. Only one woman has even a semblance of her own place in the story, and even she develops very little when the equally important men around her are given complex backstories and interesting development. Most women in the story die to further the development of the menfolk.
While Infidelitous Earth is a magnificent adventure, it also leaves out the women of the world.
