Bujold Does it again!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diplomatic Immunity (Hardcover)
I've been a fan of the Miles Vorkisigan books for many years and have been eagerly awaiting this book. After reading the last one (A Civil Campaign) I didn't think she could top it, and she hasn't, but I still thought it was a good (albeit short) read.
As usual the title is a clever play on the plot and develops throughout the story, Miles and his lovely new wife, Ekaterin are charming and funny together and we get to meet a few old friends as well as make new ones.
Bujold also develops plot lines that were laid down many years ago (Falling Free)so we can finally see Quaddie Space and her description of a night at the free-fall ballet was excellent.
After reading the latest from Bujold I have immediately picked up one of her older ones (Memory, in fact)and will reread it before going back to reread Diplomatic Immunity.
Thank you Ms Bujold for writing about someone who has become like a personal friend after all these years, I look forward to your future writing with eagerness and interest.
