This volume starts slowly, but picks up speed as the tale progresses. The ending leads right into the final volume of the trilogy, and I can't wait to listen. Jaron needs to secure his kingdom before his body gives out! The reader is okay, but could be more expressive.
Loved the individual voices and the diary entries. The lads grow and mature over the course of the story--but not too much. Looking forward to Part 2.
I was happy to return to England and revisit some of the characters from other books in the series. Miss Gwen deserves her own story and some happiness.
After finishing, I feel manipulated and slimy. I need a shower. Juliet
Stevenson is a brilliant reader. The best part of the experience.
This may be one of the saddest books I've encountered. Yet it is also hopeful in its ending, which is also a beginning.
Descriptions of this book cannot capture the depths of its characters, or their shallowness, in some respects. Experience for yourself the loneliness of Arthur, the strength of Yolanda, and the courage of Kel. These characters will stay with you for a long time.
The readers of this audio book are perfect.
Maggie is a great character. I was worried that this would be one of those animal stories that are hard to hear, but the relationship between Maggie and Scott was wonderful. I love the way they healed each other. Read this one without fear.
The story, itself, was okay, but the Three Codas elevate the book. Recommend. Wil Wheaton, as always is excellent.
Light and enjoyable entry into the Vorkosigan series. Ivan is a fine hero and, the reader gets to visit with most of Bujold's cast of character, either in person or in letters. A Must Read for any fan.
All the beloved characters from the TA stories appear to help our heroine return Winter to his rightful realm and restore Summer to the Chalk.
This wacky tale would be much less enjoyable narrated by someone else. Wheaton's voice is perfect for the Tom Stein, agent to the stars--snarky when needed, incredulous as the story demands, and compassionate during the philosophical discussions. He makes Joshua a Real Person.
