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
The continual in-jokes referring to events in previous books of the series
The story line sort of suited Ivan... a bit bland on first appraisal but with lots of not so obvious depth
A bit more light hearted than some of the other books in the series - very entertaining
This is a book I can listen to over and over - either when re-listening to the whole series or just on it's own.
The way Bujold transitions Miles from warrior to Auditor and the whole 'can of worms' thing that Haroche finds himself in
Laugh, cry, feel for Miles, enjoy the spectacle.
This is one of the best of a great series - a series not just for Science Fiction buffs but for anybody who appreciates superlative writing and characterization.
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
