Book Report: Komarr
26 February 2005, 8:35 PM
During a recent period of exhaustion and muzzy-headedness (which isn’t so much over as it might be, although I’ve pretty much decided not to indulge it any more), I fell happily into the arms of a couple of comfort books. The first of these was Komarr, one of the best of the Vorkosigan books.
This time through, though, I was annoyed—not by anything in this book, but by the knowledge that Ekaterin, who is very interesting in this book, and is magnificent in the next, becomes a non-entity in her third. Just knowing that made me cross, this time through. Ah, well. I suppose I ought to seek out “Winterfair Gifts”; I have no idea what’s in it, but it should have some good Ekaterin bits.
