Miles turns 30, and--though he isn't slowing down just yet--he is starting to lose interest in the game of Wall: the one where he tries to climb the wall, fails, gets up, and tries again. Having finally reached a point in his life where he can look back and realize that he has managed to prove his courage and competence, he can move on to bigger and better things.
Depending on how you count it, this is the eighth, ninth, tenth, or eleventh book in a series--not all are about Miles or even his extended family. A good place to start is with the first Vorkosigan story, Shards of Honor.
Restored to life after being pronounced dead, Miles Vorkosigan realizes that the event has left him with a profound weakness and is dismissed from his job, but things are further complicated when he remembers something that he saw while dead.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

i must admit that it is rather sad to see the end of admiral naismith. for i will truly miss this impsec covert ops agent.
while trying to turn miles' life around, Ms Bujold even manages to throw in a rather good plot.Memory is a great read and a definite milestone in this series. It might leave you a bit sad and a little empty when you close the book. But there is no way you would regret buying and reading this book.
One remarkable aspect to this series is that while it is science fiction, it is very strongly about character development as well. Miles changes over time. Most other people in the series don't change but then, most other people in the books are older than Miles and more set in their ways. Another interesting thing about this series is that the "galaxy" in which this book is set is slowly coming into focus. We only see bits and pieces of the Miles galaxy but even so, it is developing very nicely as a coherent, believable background for the stories.
Now this book, Memory, is a real turning point in Miles life and in the series. It marks (what seems to be) a turn away from "space opera" and towards something new... science fiction for policy wonks? Its hard to describe but the old days of blasting your enemies are replaced by the new, more mature challenges of politics and character assassination. It also represents a chance for Bujold to engage in some "romance".
Don't take this wrong, this is not some romance novel, but it is a novel that in many ways is about relationships. Its rare to read a SF novel that is this carefull balance of comedy, mystery, and character.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
As the latest book that I've read of Miles's adventures, perhaps it is a wee bit flat. Not very exciting overall. BUT I totally love this book as it expands and (conversely) encapsulates the Vorkosigan world approx. 230 odd years since 'Falling Free'. Similar to Asimov's style - for the series portraying the possible future of a (rather) roboticised world - of not making a continuous character the continual central character, Miles Vorkosigan is subsumed in the events surrounding his life, i.e. the intrigue against Illyan, rather than causing chaos (as in the Little Admiral's adventures). Bujold treats Miles as she did Ethan of Athos, as eyes to tell a greater story and yet a character in his own right.
I enjoyed reading the little digressions from the central theme, relating the details of other people in Miles' life, such as his Emperor, and Miles' friends from previous adventures. I also enjoyed the method by which new and interesting characters are introduced into "our" Vorkosigan world. (Analogous to past Pratchett 'Discworld' books, where the most laugh-on-a-bus of the story is a mere footnote.) Wait 'til you meet Zap the cat.
Dare I say that Miles grows up? I believe that 'Memory' is more than a mere sci-fi mystery wi' a bit of psychology thrown in. It is a good story set in an interesting world, populated with believable characters. Miles' personality becomes more complex (as we all should when we grow), and Miles learns to know himself better (as I wish I could), and a sub-theme throughout seems to be "life goes on".
I wouldn't catergorise 'Memory' as puff pastry, but maybe puff savoury (as only Miles' new cook can make it - with perhaps a side dip, or a filling of dairy products after it passes through the cook's domain ). That's the way I see it, that's the way I call it.
Bujold has done it again! This series of books about the Vorkosigans keeps getting better and better . How this latest addition to the ongoing saga would strike someone who has not read its predecessors is hard to say. (Start with Shards of Honor, if possible.) But for those who have read at least most of them, this has to be one of the three or four best of the bunch. It does not have as much action as many of the others, but makes up for that lack in plot, and especially in characterization. This is not just space opera. This book is "literature!" (And I liked it anyway!) Halfway through this book, her central character, Lieutenant Miles Vorkosigan of Barrayaran Imperial Security, alias Admiral Miles Naismith of the Dendarii Mercenaries, ceases to be an adolescent out on a lark, and becomes a responsible citizen of the Empire. And yet his story remains highly entertaining to follow. Bujold showed from the start an ability to create characters of unusual depth and reality, and yet she has greatly outdone herself here. If you have read all of the prequels, by all means, do not fail to read this book. If you have not read the prequels, what are you waiting for? SF doesn't get any better than this
