Free from the Baen Free Library.
admit I wasn't as pulled into this one as early or as powerfully as the
other Vorkosigan books I've read so far, but this was also the first on
I hadn't listened to on audio. I did find the middle section of the
book somewhat convoluted and had trouble keeping the (many) characters
and factions straight. But I have to marvel at how much detail Bujold
puts into her books, and how layered the plots and characters are.
Amazing, really. Just when you want to dub the series "light," Bujold
throws in something sobering and very, very disturbing.
Miles is a
great character, and I liked seeing him at what is essentially the
beginning of his story. I love the humor, and I like that Miles, while
the "hero" of the tale and obviously a likeable person, is definitely
not perfect or blameless.
