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.
I have never written a review before, but I really liked this book and wanted to encourage others to try it. If you grew up in or even just lived thru the 80's, you have to read this book. Great story, characters, and performance.
Listen to it!
Funny, engrossing, satisfying
Ivan, of course, the protagonist, but the supporting cast was wonderfully creative and well realized, and it was fun to see By again, especially in a more fully formed character.
I love being read to, and he does a wonderful job of voicing multiple characters
If you haven't read or listened to Bujold's Vorkosegan series I envy you, because you can enjoy them for the first time, while I am on my 2nd, 3rd or even 4th or 5th time (and I still love the series). Ivan has ben a supporting player since the 2nd book (?second half of the first book, depending on how you look at it), and it was fun to see him as the subject of his own story. Like his mother, many of us wondered if he would ever get married--or meet his match--this was a very satisfying end to that story arc.
