This is top drawer short story that fills in a gap in the storyline.
No specific favorite. All fit together in the story wonderfully.
Although not one of the very best of the Vorkosigan books, it is a nice portrait of Miles' armsman Roic. Grover Gardner does an especially amazing job voicing Taura.
Heartily recommended for Miles fans.
I was thrilled to see Taura play a starring role in this story, as well to have a glimpse of Miles and Ekaterin's wedding. My only regret is that I have only one book left before I'm at an end to this excellent series. I'll just have to start at the beginning and listen to them all again. More Miles!
At just over 2 hours this was a quick listen but as an avid reader of the Vorkosigan saga it was well worth the money. Unlike any of the other stories, this one is told from the perspective of a Vorkosigan armsman, so while the normal big players are still present, they are somewhat reduced. this allows for the little things in their lives to take center stage.
a word of warning, if you have not read many of the books it may be best to hold off. I found this story to be so good because of the many in jokes and back story.
I love to re-read books with audible.
Another great novella that reveals stunning characters and themes from Bujold! This one focuses on Tara and Guardsman Roic. Deep, touching and fun.
This little romp in the Vorkosigan universe is just plain fun. It might not be the place to start if you are unfamiliar, but it I really enjoyed getting the perspective of some normally "supporting cast" characters.
Seeing Taura again and the courage she shows. Watching Roic growing.
Grover Gardner is a top notch reader who gives life to his characters.
I laugh at the description of the garden supplement and the reactions of the characters.
Others have said: "The serie is character driven..." It's true but more than that the people,under Ms Bujold's pen,are individuals you can relate to. They are a mirror of our society. Including Taura.
Although winterfair gifts is a short story about wedding, it is worth the listen as all of Admiral Nesmith's and Mile's friends and family come to celebrate with him.
laugh out loud
I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
This might be the most tender of the Vorkosigan canon. Tarrin is an amazing character and this deals with the very different limits of her life and what that means to everyone around her. Most of Lois' work is deeply funny. There's humor here, and completion, but a deeper sorrow than in most of her work. But don't not read it for that. You do want to read it.
