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!
This book has had the most horrible effect on my sleep and productivity since The WindUp Girl -- I've deliberately left half an hour early for meetings so I can spend the extra time in the car park listening :-). The interplay between Miles and Mark is utterly gripping. The Vorkosigan series just keeps getting better.
Grover Gardner is a very worthy performer of these books with a great vocal and emotional range. I hope he enjoyed reading them as much as I've enjoyed listening to them, because there are a lot of hours in this! His accent is sometimes startling to me (e.g. he pronounces
I'm not a big fan of this kind of literary shift in a story. I'm invested in the story for Miles and I found this story to be frustrating to wade through. I will grant that the author did a good job in evolving Mark's character, but in the end she failed to get me to care enough about him to justify all the time spent listening to him whine about his lot in life. Unfortunately, this story has such a dramatic impact on all the characters that it is not something that can be skipped.
The Narrator, as always, does a good job of voicing the characters and makes the story bearable despite my issues with the characters.
I am listening to the entire Miles Vorkosigan series after having read them over many years. While I generally prefer those that have more Miles and less Mark, I found this installment to be the best so far even though the middle third was all about Mark. And I even grew found of Mark and his personal development! The entire series makes for a great listen, and I am sad that I have only a few more to go.
