This one made me laugh out loud at several points. = )
Read mostly on two long car rides, so my DH was wondering what I was laughing about. But you've got to know the character of Miles to really 'get it', I think. (If I get a chance, I'll try to come back and add them in here.)
This was a novel following several important storylines - Miles turning 30, the future of the Dendarii, Miles' military career, his health, the love lives of some of his friends, and a huge issue around the medical meltdown of ImpSec chief Simon Illyan. I'll say no more, because I don't want to have to spoiler alert it.
Suffice it to say I really enjoyed this long and close look at Barrayar home life, and watching the immense character growth that Miles undergoes in this installment of the Vorkosigan Saga.
