5.0 out of 5 stars Great to see Rebus back, 9 Feb 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
I'd forgotten just how good the Rebus books were having been not so impressed with the Fox books.

Captain Vorpatril's Alliance (Vorkosigan Saga Book 18)
Price: 5.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hugely entertaining story in the style of A Civil Campaign (which I now must re-read).
Full of her usual humour and clever observations it was very interesting to see Barrayar (and other well known characters) from a different perspective.

This is a huge and excellent book.
The fantasy setting is not the normal one but the world created is intriguing with a large cast of fascinating characters.
Can't wait for the other books in the series.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cardturner (Kindle Edition)
I am a bridge player which was what made me buy the book in the first place.
I really enjoyed it. The story itself is very enjoyable and the more technical bridge bits are marked so you can skip over them if you are not a bridge player.
Giving it to my (non-bridge playing) wife now - will be interesting to she what she makes of it. Who knows, it might even make her want to learn to play...

4.0 out of 5 stars How to get it to sync, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like some other reviewers I could not get the new unit to sync with my existing master.
I then found a comment on another site saying that you have to unplug the master first (I also unplugged the other slave just to be on the safe side).
Having done this it then synced straight away.
The product itself works great with my Sky+ and HD boxes - just a shame the instructions do not explain about unplugging the master unit to get the sync to work...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to see Miles again, 6 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a lengthy delay it is great to finally get to read another Miles novel.
As usual his character is the star of the show as he deals with a society who regard cryonics as the norm.
The descriptions of how others see him is very entertaining and of course the book is superbly written.
Hopefully this means we will see more Miles in the future...
