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.
Checking out Brandon Sanderson's work
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.
Grover Gardner is a fine reader. Story moves fast even though I dreaded reading about Miles' death, the story is very compelling. Ms Bujold's characters grow and change. Excellent character development. Very consistent portrayal of main & side characters.
Mark calling Corrine.
Miles waking up!
Ivan mourning for Miles.
Fantastic characters & storytelling.
Miles Vorkosigan. One of the best thought out characters I have ever read. Miles uses intelligence and determination in a world dominated by strength and aggression.
Miles but I could say any of them. Grover Gardner is the best and the Vorkosigan saga would not be the same without his narration.
Mark's longing for a name and identity of his own.
If you haven't had the pleasure of reading or listening to this series, do it now. You will not be disappointed. These books are some of my very favorite and have something for everyone. Adventure, suspense, mystery, drama, romance, humor...I could go on and on. This series is a rare gem amongst series written today that are formulaic and get pumped out like they are on an assembly line. Now, go out and get them!
