I love the whole Vorkosigan saga and cant say I dont like any one of the books. But we all have favorites and this one is mine. Yes, its not so action packed as most of the others, but it strikes a meditative, gloomy and very deep note inside me. It is a more adult book than the other to me, although all of the Miles books have concealed (well weaved) ideas which do not come across to everyone.
Have fun with it, and try to feel the emotions, not only the plot! )
I really liked the narration, different people make the stories sound more lively. Also, i have tried to read/listen to Faulkners novels and could quite pick my way through the. The short stories are a nice compromise, maybe now that I am used to his manner, i will be able to enjoy the longer genre.
Thank you very much Audible!
This is a great read, ive had the paperback for a long time, but could never start it, though my friend told me it was his favorite book ) But after downloading,I just could keep my ear off.
Great semi-fictional, but historically sound book. I adore Blackthorne's love of the sea and the overall clash of european and japanese culture.
