Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen (Vorkosigan Saga, #16)

  • Au­thor: Lois Mc­Mas­ter Bu­jold
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    It's a Vorkosi­­gan book by Lois Mc­­Mas­ter Bu­jold, so you know what you are go­ing to get:

    * Puns
    * Gen­­tle prose
    * Some jokes
    * A sto­ry where the en­e­mies are or­­ga­ni­za­­­tion­al and lo­gis­tic chal­lenges in a peace­­ful en­vi­ron­­men­t.

    Ok, that last one is most­­ly the case with the re­­cent Vorkosi­­gan book­s. Long gone are the in­­ter­stel­lar in­­trigues and space­­ships fight­­ing wach oth­­er. Now? Our pro­­tag­o­nists are faced with the fol­low­ing ques­­tion­s:

    ¿What do I do with all this con­crete mix­er?

    ¿Should I ask her out, or is it go­ing to be weird be­­cause she is the wid­ow of my ex-lover we use to have three­­­somes with and we are hav­ing com­­pli­­cat­ed 3-­­par­ent ba­­bies and tech­ni­­cal­­ly the re­­gent of the plan­et where I am the top mil­i­­tary au­thor­i­­ty?

    You know, that sort of book.
