5.0 out of 5 stars Read it!, 21 Oct 2006
I love the George MacDonald Fraser Flashman series and this is my favourite one - the Great Game being second. The historical accuracy is spot on as usual and the books always keep me laughing and thoroughly amused all the way through! Not going to bother going into all the detail, plots etc.. because the simple message is that you need to buy a Flashman book and from one keen reader to another I promise you you will not regret it. Read it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 21 Oct 2006
I am a great Bujold fan and this is definitely my favourite book. I stumbled on to the series half way through, reading this one first, and am glad I did because it still is a great introduction to the whole Vorkosigan saga and almost works out better that way, that you can read back and then see where he came from. The plot and action are great and it really inspired me to read the entire series! Scifi space opera at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed, 21 Oct 2006
Did not agree with the politics but they were still really interesting because much more behind the scenes knowledge than you get from the news! But the action was really exciting and gripping stuff. You can tell this guy has really been in the wars! Also checked the official website makingakilling.co.uk which had lots of interesting FAQs and cool photos. Not sure if this is ethical about mercenaries or whether he even is one but it was a really good read about what is going on out there in the war. Great present for husbands, dads or anyone in the forces!
