Apparently, quite a few people like the Vor series, so I picked this one up. I wasn't impressed. Yes, LMB's writing is good, but that doesn't automatically make a good science fiction. The plot simply isn't particularly exciting, the ideas are consistently stale. Worst of all, the story is driven by lucky coincidences and the fact that everybody believes/obeys the main character, mostly without question. Maybe he really is that charming ... but I for one wasn't charmed. YMMV, of course.

Reasonably entertaining, but fluffy to the extreme. Bujold is unabashed about making this pure space opera, but fortunately for her, she writes quite winningly, and Vorkosigan is a charming chap. Enjoyable for a quick read at the beach or at the poolside (which is exactly what I did), but I wouldn't say it's any great shakes. Don't look for any profound insights into life. This *is* Space Opera Lite
