  • Ethan of Athos

    Story
    (428)

    With the future of Athos at stake, Ethan is chosen on behalf of his cloistered fellows for a unique mission: to brave the wider universe in quest of new ovarian tissue cultures to replenish Athos' dwindling stocks. Along the way, he must tangle with covert operatives, killers, telepathy, interplanetary politics, and - perhaps most disturbingly - an indomitable female mercenary named Elli Quinn.

    Any additional comments?

    I was a little put off when it was revealed that Athos was an all male planet with all that implies. But, that aspect is not explored in depth. This story follows the typical vorkosigan pattern of mystery, machinations, manipulations, all finally tied up in a neat bow. If you're into the series, you won't be disappointed.

    It is the colour of a bleached skull, his flesh; and the long hair that flows below his shoulders is milk-white. From the tapering, beautiful head stare two slanting eyes, crimson and moody.

    What did you love best about Elric of Melnibone?

    So atmospheric! Spot on. Excellent escapism.


    What other book might you compare Elric of Melnibone to and why?

    A bit like Earthsea but very steampunk.


    Have you listened to any of Jeffery West and Michael Moorcock (introduction) ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but hearing the pronunciation of Melnibone by the author was a revelation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could happily leave and come back to it such was the satisfaction of the listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Better than reading it myself. So much richer...
