"A Civil Campaign" is hard SF & Bujold's funniest book yet.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Civil Campaign (A Miles Vorkosigan adventure) (Paperback)
I have just re-read "A Civil Campaign" and, as always when I re-read one of Lois Bujold's books, I am delighted by all the little details I had forgotten. She is a master craftsman, her characters always seem real (villains have their virtues and heroes their vices), and she does not overlook the smallest detail of language or plot.
"A Civil Campaign", which she describes as "A Comedy of Biology and Manners", is the latest of her Vorkosigan Series and takes place on the Imperial Planet of Barrayar during the run-up to the marriage of the Emperor Gregor Vorbarra. It is hard SF, it is a romance in the regency tradition, and it is extremely, and continuously, funny. Do not read this book in any place where loud sustained laughter might be embarrassing.
