    Miles Vorkosigan makes his debut in this frenetic coming-of-age tale. At age 17, Miles is allowed to take the entrance exams to the elite military academy; he passes the written but manages, through miscalculation in a moment of anger, to break both his legs on the obstacle course, washing out before he begins. His aged grandfather dies in his sleep shortly after, for which Miles blames himself.

    Story

    I admit that I am not normally a fan of the space genre of sci-fi. Usually its all just a bit too male-orientated for me, especially when long sections of book are dedicated to weapons, or technology or the spaceship... However, I loved this series, I have now listened to all the Miles Vorkosigan books, they have been fabulous company as I have repainted the interior of my house :-) Miles is flawed, but extremely well understood by the author, you can't help but love him in spite of himself. I have enjoyed that in later books the author has you watching Miles through the eyes of others, which is fairly amusing when you have watched him 'grow up' through the series. If you, like me, do not normally choose this genre of book, give it a go, maybe you will also be pleasantly surprised and become a fan.
