This book is a bit of a departure from the other Miles Vorkosigan books--not the one to start with if you have not read any of the others--but in many ways my favorite. It deals with themes of change, the difficulties of letting go of the past (especially when it has been glorious and successful) and moving on. Bujold's characterization is as always spot on and compelling. The narrator's relatively dry delivery suits Miles.
I can't believe I haven't read/listened to the Miles Vorkosigan books earlier. The characterization is fabulous, the story fascinating. I have already listened to another book and read nearly all of the others. Wonderful!
