This review is from: Memory (Miles Vorkosigan Adventures) (Mass Market Paperback)
Ms. Bujold has created a most unlikely character in Miles Vorkosogian. By all of his cultural standards, Miles should be a failure. In a culture that demands physical prowess, he has none. Miles learns early that he cannot play by the rules his society expects. So, Miles develops cunning, double dealing, and ethics (charitably described as flexible) as his tools to play his game. Where other protagonists use strength, speed, some intelligence, Miles uses his mouth (and what a weapon it is!).
This particular book is a watershed event in the life of this character because the author has apparently closed the page on his military career. The angst of Miles and his constant groping with his purpose and meaning make his character as interesting as the plot. I highly recommend this book.
