"A very good audiobook of a great Bujold novel"
If you are already familiar with the novel, then you will find an enjoyable audiobook version. It is well read by a single reader, with good expression. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing my favorite passages, although at points I did wish for more differentiation between the characters. If you are unfamiliar with Bujold's work, the Vorkosigan series is a glorious space opera with great characterization and it is quite funny, poignant and very well written. This is the second Miles Vorkosigan novel so if you are new to the series you may want to pick up 'the Warrior's Apprentice' first, which details the earlier events.
Another wonderful reading of another wonderful novel. I really like Grove Gardner's readings of the Vorkosigan novels - he gets the humour without reading them as obviously 'funny'. And Miles is such a superb character who develops so well over the series. One to savour.
