Short and predictable, but maybe not as much so when it was written. I also find that the technology holds up after 30 years. ( )

Book description
Homeworld is the first part of sci-fi trylogy To the Stars by Harry Harrison.
Homeworld presents a future dystopian world. In response to the depletion of natural resources and resulting social collapse, a ruthless totalitarian oligarchy has emerged, ruling over both Earth and the interstellar colonies that have been established. The novel introduces the protagonist of the series, Jan Kulozik, an engineer and member of privileged technocratic elite, and traces his disillusionment and eventual rebellion as he discovers the true nature of human society
