I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.


Cover of Cetaganda.

As per usual, Cetaganda is a very enjoyable book in the Vorkosigan series. It gripped me less than usual, which still makes it a very good book. We follow Miles as he saves yet another empire. I still enjoy both the dry wit and how you’ve got to think along to get the most of the subtle fun between the lines. Other than that, it felt like Yet Another Adventure, where usually the Vorkosigan books tend to contain series-changing events. Great scifi in any case, I’m looking forward to the next one.


“You did your best, dear,” said the haut Nadina kindly. But she added more sternly, “However, you should not have attempted to handle it all alone.”
“It was my charge.”
“A little less emphasis on the my, and a little more emphasis on the charge, next time.”
Miles tried not to squirm at the general applicability of this gentle correction.
