I am a die-hard Vorkosigan fan. I downloaded this book months ago and waited until the right time to listen to it in order to savor it as I have the others in the series. I was so sad to find that Lois was obviously uninspired when she wrote this one. It was reminiscent of Winterfair Gifts. In that book Miles was mostly absent. I felt that his spirit was gone here as well. He was described rather than experienced. The last part was thrown in inexplicably. I just don't understand how such an important piece could be handled in minutes. It made no sense. Given my harsh critique I still adore the series and consider it one of the classic character creations.
Only did audio, but in my experience with such a good reader there is no comparison
I wait for books that offer a unique story with beautiful writing that just takes you in and doesn't let go
Highly recommended. Beautiful book.
This is a beautiful story different from most, beautifully written, and beautifully performed. It is the depiction of lives we rarely get a glimpse of. I wholeheartedly recommend this gem of a novel.
