She creates the most fascinating characters with such keen psychological insight. After several books of the wonderful Miles, we see another, completely fascinating but very different scion of Aral and Cordilia in Mark. The story gets dark in places, but is well worth the journey.

This series is great. The characters ND their motivations are fleshed out to the point of total immersion for me. It was hard to put down.
Of course I recommend this book--it has the usual excellent narration by Grover Gardner, and the characters we have come to love. But this is by far the darkest story line in the series, and I'm not sure I'll ever re-listen to it.
This book explores the motivations behind Miles' character, and the twists that resulted when Marc was given the same genetics but different environments. A real Nature versus Nurture exploration.
Lois McMaster Bujold creates such vivid, real characters that I often find myself wondering who she is basing them on.
I love the book, but it's super goofy to hear the narrator goof up and then re-read again. I'm sure this is not the narrator's fault, he does an excellent job.
Some one really dropped the ball delivering this un-edited version.
Reading Fantasy and SCI-FI on audible.
This was a fun story. Well written, great performance. The characters are developed nicely. Gets a little long-winded in the middle, but gets back to action at the end. Very entertaining.
Very interesting. The idea of a clone for Miles is fantastic.
Can't compare. It is unexpected.
When Miles met Mark.
I'm enjoying the audio for the Miles Vorkosigan. Grover Gardner read the story with so much enjoyment. I will be collecting the whole series in audio.
I enjoy this series and this plot was good. My problem was that the editing job for the audiobook was below average. I noticed more than fifteen mistakes.
yes, it was entertaining.
Gardner does a good job, this book was probably more difficult because of all the clone characters but he does well.
This is yet another great book in the Vorkosigan series - some of the best fiction I have ever read. I recommend the whole series to anyone who likes well written stories, science fiction or otherwise. These books are about hte people not the setting.
Brothers in Arms and Memory the preceeding and following books in the series - ad in Borders of infinity and they make a quartet of books the fit together.
Miles of course
Yes but as always I lack the time
Start with Cordelia's Honour and work forward.... brilliant
This is another excellent addition to the Vorkosigan saga. Mark is a fascinating character and a worthy addition to the storyline. I love these books and can't recommend them strongly enough. The performance by Mr. Gardner is wonderful and brings life to the books and characters.
