Lots of intermingling plots that include all the main characters in this story. Plus a moral lesson on how to treat people. A must read before Winterfair!
I had never read/heard anything about Lois McMaster Bujold or Miles Vorkosigan before I decided to take a chance on this book. It was a great listen and I enjoyed it immensely.
Good pace, good length and a very funny and intelligent story, it was a delightful surprise.
The narration and the production were very good. I will definitely take the opportunity to hear more about Miles Vorkosigan in the future.
What I thought was a slow start (though I didn't really care as I would now read anything written about Miles Vorkosigan) was just a very intelligent set up to the most outrageous of all outcomes. Hurray!!!
Bujold entertwines plots and subplots, full of satisfying originality, humor and depth. Some of the character have an unnerving reality to them. A brilliant writer delivers once again. This one is one of my favorites and may unfortunately be the last in the Miles series.
The Vorkosigan series will keep you listening. I enjoyed all of the available downloads to this series and hope they soon make available those that are not yet available. This series combines humor, fantasy, sci-fi, and romance with a unexpected number or twists.
Grover Gardner rocks. LMB ...well I loved all of the books in this series, up to this one.
This is where the series died for me. The series up to this point was so full of intrigue, of creative plot twists, of nail-biting .... ok to make it short, all the things you have probably come to love about these books, suddenly take a back seat to one theme. It goes something like this... "I think she likes me, but like, OMG, does she LIKE me like me?!?!". Just... know what you're getting into.
This is one of my favorite books ever, one I come back to again and again - and even knowing how it ends,it hooks me from start to finish.
Great story, incomparable characters, written with humor and feeling, this is Bujold at her inimitable best.
