My name is Melvin, I grew up with NLS talking books, so naturally I just love Audible!! My favorite narrator is Grover Gardner!
Lois McMaster Bujold has created a very exciting universe with this cast of characters. I am addicted to the universe involved.
This book is out of order on the Audible list. It takes place after the stories in Borders of Infinity.
Grover Gardner is a master at conveying the irony and sarcasm that runs through these books.
Audio books give the reader more time to savor the words and actions of the characters. This is a book that should be both read and listened to.
This book is comparable to other books in the series. There are no characters quite comparable to Mile Vorkosigan and no author quite like Bujold. As part of the series this book works well in establishing Ivan and Eli Quinn as well as introducing Galeni and Mark. Since all of these characters add their own particular voice to the series I consider this book an essential.
Very good as always
Too long for one setting but it makes a great trip book and is good company while doing yard work.
This is a great book in a great series. It is one that no reader of Science Fiction should miss.
I don't think you can compare the two versions. The audio version gives you someone else's take on the characters, the way of speaking and so forth. The written version allows you to build your own mental picture. I find it interesting that there are some things I put emphasis on in the written version which are just whisked over in the audio version while there are things in the audio version which stand out more that in the print version.
Other than other Vorkosigan books by Bujold there really is no other comparison
I reccommend this like any other Vorkosigan book as among the best fiction I have read
I love Bujolds work, especially the Vorkosagan series, and audio or read, the books are superior. I enjoy being read to, and listen mostly while driving, so they are a little like apples and oranges to compare--just get them any way you can.
