Captain Vorpatril's Alliance

Captain Vorpatril's Alliance is another book in the Vorkosigan saga by Lois McMaster Bujold that I enjoy so much. The book is generally very entertaining and focusses—as the title suggests—on Miles' cousin and bumbling sidekick, Ivan Vorpatril which is a pretty fun diversion. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and a healthy dose of imagination thrown into the mix. However, after a certain point, the plot and the characters get a little too silly and more than a little dull. Maybe my tastes have changed, but I also found Bujold's dialogue rather amateurish in some parts.

Read if you're a fan of the saga.
