5.0 out of 5 stars Bujold at her best, 22 Jan. 2004
Bujold is my favourite author for characterisation and this is Bujold at her best. Miles's character is fully rounded and in this book he complete's his journey to knowing and being comfortable with himself.
Bujold once said she came up with her plots by asking herself 'what is the worst thing I can do to Miles now' and you can really see this premise at work here.
BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT. It is a definate 'keeper' and 'rereader'.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Die Hard Skolian Universe collectors, 22 Jan. 2004
I LOVE Asaro's Primary Inversion and Catch the Lightening, and keep buying Asaro books for that reason. This book fills in the story/history of one of the Skolian Universe characters, but is much more romance and much less hard SF than PI or CTL. I would say it is one for die hard skolian universe series addicts and not a place to start if you have not read Asaro before.
The story of Roca Skolia and how she met and married Eldrinson. A prequel to Primary Inversion. Bit of a thin plot really.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK Read, 22 Jan. 2004
I did not dislike this, but is did not 100% grab me either. I guess it is because I like my SF based in the future/other planets and struggle to loose myself in a SF story based on earth.
Premise of the book is that there are aliens who trying to take over the earth. The protagonist (raised by wolves and now a PI) has unusual talents which involve being able to taste/sample DNA and this is the story of his own self discovery a to how he came about these strange talents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Liaden Universe Story, but an enjoiyable read., 20 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Low Port (Paperback)
Story about Gem ser'Edrith who was sold by his xenophobic 'crew' relatives as a child and adopted by a master thief and who has become a master thief himself. His relatives want him back now as he is foretold as being thier savior in 'The Tomorrow Log'.
Enjoyable read, but does not have the excellence and depth of world building that is so smooth and enjoyable in the Author's other 'Liaden' books.
The author's are some of my favourite space opera writers who I would recommend to anyone. However, as a real Liaden fan, it took me a while to switch gears with this book.

Molecules of Emotion: Why You Feel the Way You Feel
Molecules of Emotion: Why You Feel the Way You Feel

5.0 out of 5 stars Readable scientific exploration of the mind body link, 14 April 2000
Recommended by Brandon Bays, I found that I could not put this book down.
Neuroscientist Candace Pert proposes scientific theories for the mind/body link.
At times it gets deep into the science, but Candace Pert manages to make it all very readable by interweaving this with her own personal story.
