What with the drab Hemingway and one of my periodic reading funks, I thought the always entertaining Vorkosigan books would make for a great reread option. Imagine my pleasure when I discovered that I had somehow overlooked this book in my first read through!

Standard Miles Vorkosigan warning: Please park your sanity at the door.

So this book deals with some early Miles stuff and is pretty important in the way it sets up major recurring elements in the series.

The striking element of this book and in fact any Miles book is the scope of escalation. From some very small and one would imagine unimportant or inconsequential things, come world shattering explosions. An overheard quarrel at a spaceport somehow leads to an interplanetary escapade and the turning of the balance of a war. Miles' infamous forward momentum seems to envelope the reader and drag him along in a way that often you are forced to stop and ask "Wait, what happened from what?! How did we even get here?"

As always we get some excellent character work, all the more interesting as many of these will be embellished on later. But my admiration is again reserved for Aral Vorkosigan a character the author handles with great delicacy so that with his tiny gestures and little screentime he conveys a wealth of information.

The Warrior's Apprentice shifts the focus to Miles Vorkosigan, who grows up in a conservative (but changing) Barrayaran society with two strikes against him--being physically lacking due to a birth defect, and being the son of an off-worlder. However, this story takes Miles away from that society in the form of an awkward vacation to his mother's home world. Here, Miles shows that his main positive attribute is fast-talking, and through his uncanny (and not particularly believable) powers of persuasion, along with some dumb luck, finds himself the leader of first a spaceship, then a fleet, and then an entire revolution. While as a reader I want to believe him to be clever or good-hearted, we have access to his internal dialogue which is filled with both teenage angst and complete trust in people he's known for a week who turn out to be loyal to him by some stroke of luck. The book does become a lot more interesting in the final chapters as he returns to Barrayar and is immediately thrust into a highly-charged political situation. However, I didn't really find this to be the best introduction to the main character of the rest of the series. ( )

Super fun times. She tears through plot at a fairly fast pace, and each book reads like a short season of one of the best character-driven SF series ever (8 episodes a season, say). I'm reading them in internal chronological order and enjoying them very much so far—I'm appreciating the surprise of certain events happening, rather than the smug appreciation of "oh, so that's why such-and-such happened later," etc.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve! ( )

This is a continuation of the Vorkosigan Saga. The son, Miles, who was harmed by a plot against his parents, tries out and fails to enter into the Barrayaran Imperial Service Academy after breaking both legs during the initial physical entrance exams. He and his bodyguard and the bodyguard's daughter leave for Beta colony where the experience quite the adventure after one event after another accumulate and Miles maneuver's through the various challenges. It was a fun story in the series and while it is listed as number 2 it really is number 5. ( )

Pretty good 3.5. Miles is nice but not a very believable hero. A bit young to be a real leader. ( )

"That's because I've got forward momentum. There's no virtue in it. It's just a balancing act. I don't dare stop."
"I guess it just doesn't look very heroic to sneak up behind somebody and shoot them in the back. I can't help thinking it would be more efficient, though."
But reason seemed to run backwards, conclusions swallowed in premises, and premises in silence, until in the end only silence and the unanswerable object remained.
More battles have been won or last by the quartermasters than by any general staff.
