Customer Review

on August 9, 2013
I had not originally intended to buy this. The first volume was not, in my opinion, the best possible longer treatment of the original short story. Then I changed my mind.
I would quibble about the description of "a generation after..." the previous volume.
It reads like the second volume of a trilogy, very downbeat, one of the very first-met characters of the original dies off. There are lots of loose ends left and lots of newish characters who don't seem to be doing very much in this volume.
Like some of Bujold's stories, the details that really matter may be only a short sentence - missed if you read it too fast, as I always do (the first time) - and then whole chunks of the following story don't quite make sense.
