5.0 out of 5 stars A funny, fast-moving, involving book, 5 Jan. 2001
By 
This review is from: Ethan of Athos (Baen Books Science Fiction) (Mass Market Paperback)
Ethan of Athos is a very pleasant addition to Bujold's 'Vorkosigan' books. It takes a bit of a side route from her main timeline, concentrating instead on Elli Quinn and one of her adventures while working for the Dendarii Mercenaries.
The idea of an all-male society (only possible with advanced technology) is well explored, as is the culture clash when a member of this society (Ethan) has to deal with that most mysterious entity - a woman.
This however, is merely one thread of an amusing, engaging plot involving interplanetary espionage, genetics, space station life and eels (yes, eels - I won't spoil the plot by explaining them).
If you've never read any Bujold, but you like quality writing and convincing characters, this is a great book to start on, with very little 'past history' to deal with. If you've read and liked anything else by her, you should enjoy this book.
