Would you try another book written by Lois McMaster Bujold or narrated by Grover Gardner?

I have the purchased them all since the Warriors Apprentice and really enjoyed them. I really like the wheeling and dealing that the author can generate and tell with interest. I was so looking forward to this.

What was most disappointing about Lois McMaster Bujold’s story?

This was put forward as a Miles Vorkosogan story. He just appears hafl way through kind of thing. Its a romance not adventure. The story is well crafted and highlights a number of issues. However its not about beating the bandwagon

Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favourite?

Gardener is a brilliant narrator its just this book content with nods to previous storylines isnt for me .

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen?

Non question its the authors work - they have to get it right

Any additional comments?

On the edge of sending this back - but I wont , mostly because of Grovers narration , it can play in the background. If you are new to the Vorkosogan Saga don't start with this one you wont want to read the rest

This book did not contribute anything and listening to it was like treading water. I am not sure if I will consider the next book at all.

Ah! Alastair this one is a real disappointment. I have listened to all your other books with real enjoyment. The right amount of story, tecno stuff and suspense for great sci-fi. Good luck with the next one! I know you can't be bang on all the time.

I really enjoyed this story. Pratchett's style and sense of fun really appeals to me. This was a nice listen late at night when I couldn't sleep

This book is very very good and kept my interest right to the end. I am really looking forward to downloading the other novels in this series. Have no fear - you will enjoy - even if you are not into SF.
