I don't know if I've ever read such a thematically perfect book. And I thought Bujold was good with characters.

Go read it! Go read it, everyone, so I can talk to someone about it.

Bujold is a virtuoso.

And she's done it again.

Go read, go read!

Peace of Christ to you,

Jessica Snell

Does it stand alone?

Jessica said...

Um . . . no. I'd have to say no.

I mean, I think if you read it as a stand-alone, you'd enjoy it, as a sort of rollicking detective story. But you'd miss a lot of the impact of the end.

Just finished!! And wow . . . Dave won't let me talk about it here, but I'd love to have a conversation about it.

Count me in! I finished it last night, and I'd love to discuss it somehow. :)
