Count Romeo Vorkosigan, the one-man strike team. Oh, I've been looking forward to re-reading this novel, and it didn't disappoint. Again with changing point of views, this novel is roughly told in 3 connected parts: * Miles's courtship of Ekaterin - planned like a covert operation which blows...

Just imagine me giving a huge satisfied sigh right about now. That's what I was waiting for. More of that manic Miles energy. I've liked the couple of other Vorkosigan books I've read between The Warrior's Apprentice and A Civil Campaign, but they lacked a certain something that caught me about the ...

This was such fun. This is the 12th book in the Vorkosigan Saga, and though I think it probably could stand alone, I think it's even more enjoyable if you read the prior books, starting at least with the omnibus work Young Miles. I think a lot of the enjoyment in the doings of familiar characters an...

While I enjoyed this book immensely, I wouldn't recommend it as an entree into the Vorkosigan series - I think you need to already know and love the characters.It's not slow-moving, really - but not much happens. It's a romance/soap opera, more than the action-adventure that most of the series could...

Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma: which reading list to follow it up with? Variety is the spice of life, so I’ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously. This book falls into my FINISHING THE SERIES! list.I loves me a good series! But I...

I'm glad this book takes place on Barraryar. Also the dinner party from hell was really memorable. I also love Cordelia and Aral and I'm thinking of re-reading the first book because their romance is so wonderful. Miles pursues love in his not very straightforward way and the people he confesses h...

I thought this was well-written and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the protagonist was not your usual "pretty boy" hero, nor was he a brooding victim of circumstance. I liked that he was funny, sarcastic and determined in the face of massive problematic medical issues. The vari...

Bujold hits it out of the park again here. I've grown to not expect standard science fiction from her, but this... this is extraordinary. A mannered romance on the face of it, but not all that many pages in, one realizes that it's another meditation on humanity, on honor, on love. The sort of thing ...
Title and Statement of Responsibility
A fantastic blend of all the genres I love the most. The dedication "For Jane, Charlotte, Georgette, and Dorothy--long may they rule" says it all.
