Komarr has two alternating points of view: Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan, on a mission to investigate an accident to the artificial sun of. I recall the first time I read the opening chapter of Komarr as one of the Framing the book with her perspective lets Bujold get right down to. From the Back Cover. Komarr could be a garden — with a thousand more years work. Or an uninhabitable wasteland, if the terraforming fails. Now the solar.

It will be interesting to see how he manages this romance If they did, then they would be our domes, and we certainly wouldn’t want them to be vulnerable, eh? Who was really the senior member of the team?

Komarr (novel)

I already mentioned the good parts in my review of practically all books of the series: He is bigger than life, but packed in a small frame and vulnerable psyche. He’s Aral Vorkosigan’s son, for God’s sake. She turned off the cheery colored plant lights and just sat in the dim reflected illumination from the sealed Komarran city.

Refresh and try again. But this time it was Ekaterin’s POV that kept me going. One of the best in the series.

Ekaterin — having been contacted by one of the coworkers — arrived to rescue Miles; Tien had already died in captivity. Your uncle will take him away soon enough. Here, I’ll get you a glass-” “No, don’t get up, Madame Vorsoisson.


In all other respects, I loved Komarr. See more in my review of the anthology Miles in Love three books in one: If you come to this volume from the start believe me, you are in for a treat. Here, I’ll get you a glass-“. Ekaterin comes across as a timid creature totally beaten into complete submission by her loser husband – in other words exactly the opposite of Miles.

Tien, he’s the least likely of my relatives-or yours, for that matter-to care if your disease is genetic or not. He was under a lot of pressure at work, it was very ill-timed of her to push for a resolution to his medical dilemma now. When she came out again, things had eased, or at least, Nikolai had stopped being so supernaturally good, i.

Ancient Earthmen, she had read, had taken alterations in the clockwork procession of their heavens-comets, novae, shooting stars-for disturbing omens, premonitions of disasters natural or political; the very word, disaster, embedded the astrological source of the concept.

Kendra, or maybe it was Jas, I don’t remember, said it best: It’s so easy to get engaged in Bujold’s characters, they become so fast important to komrr that I can’t stop reading.

This book will never be a favorite, but it’s not a bad read by any means and it introduces a major new character, Ekaterin, who will play a key role in Miles’ life going forward.

Apr 20, Choko rated it really liked it Shelves: With parts of Barrayar itself still undergoing active terraforming, and with the planet of Sergyar drawing off immigrants from both the worlds damned near as fast as they can board ship, some members of the government are wondering openly why we are spending so much Imperial treasure dinking with such a marginal world as Komarr. He released her hand without kissing it, to bujols relief.



The boy had spent the last bujod hours in his room, tinkering intently with his models; he was due to shake out the knots. I love Bujold’s books.

Komarr | Book by Lois McMaster Bujold | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

But the mystery plot is just brilliant, as the failure of a geoengineering megastructure leads down and down into the most ordinary of crimes, but with galactic-scale consequences.

Lies within lies, treachery within treachery — Miles is caught in a race against time to stop a plot that could exile him from Barrayar forever.

Ekaterin watched her husband, watching the little Auditor covertly, and read the silent disturbed judgment, Mutant!

All the same, I love Miles for loving her. She was very much a crusty old frontier woman, very Vor-she’d come to the South Continent right after the Cetagandan War.
