"Bujold successfully mixes quirky humor with just enough action, a dab of feminist social commentary, and her usual superb character development in a sprightly SF romance that her many fans will find enormously satisfying." (Publishers Weekly)

Delightful listening to a delightful story. Gute Umsetzung des Buches
I know the book before but I really enjoyed to listen to the audio book. Everything was done very good, I like the speaker and the cadences.
Danke für ein sehr schönes Hörerlebnis eines wunderbaren Buches. Ich kannte das Werk und das Vorkosigan Universum bereits, habe es aber auch als Hörbuch sehr genossen. Der Sprecher bringt die verschiedenen Personen gut zur Geltung. Es ist alles gut verständlich.

The funniest of the series
When I read it just after it was published I felt somewhat let down, because it was not so strong a book as "Komarr" or "Memory". Well, that may still be so, but in the meantime I discovered what a brilliant book this is.
It's subject is not only the campaign Miles wages to capture Ekaterine's heart and hand, there is much more: sub-plots and stories about Mark, Ivan, a count's succession struggle, the Imperial wedding ... It's just a great panorama of Barrayar: colorful, full of suspense and romance.
Also this is probably the funniest Vorkossigan book of them all. Some of the scenes are just hilarious! Some are almost too much: the scene when Miles gets his Ekaterin could be from a Frank-Capra-movie.
And the voice and laid-back style of Grover Gardner brings it all alive and makes listening to this great book just pure enjoyment.
