Declan and I got into a side discussion back in December during nominations for the January read and we were talking about good authors who write finely-crafted characters, settings, worlds using elegant prose -- that is
Lois McMaster Bujold
to a tee. After much discussion, when asked for a recommendation of just ONE book (I'd recommended the entire 20-years' worth of series she's written) we settled on Ethan of Athos, a favorite of mine and actually only the second book Lois ever wrote--so early in her career. It's not the second book of the series, but does slot into place early in the chronology. Declan and I were going to ry to read this book together.
Okay, stop laughing,Declan, because I hope you were NOT ready to start. I'm not even close to finding time this month. Sorry! As I said, I've read the book half a dozen times and would love to discuss it but I've had some major scheduling setback on the release of my first book (got all caught up New Year's weekend then LOST all the work Jan 2d--un-freakin-real!!) not to mention being sick with a fever 4 degrees above normal this week...I'm past the fever right now but still contagious and still have to go to work so I might just relapse. I don't get sick leave and can't affaord not to work so I have to go. Wish I could stay home with Ethan in bed (hee hee) Sadly, no such luck.
If you start Ethan without me, be sure to post comments so I can join in once I find time to get back here!

I actually forgot to order it. I should do it now as I might still have to wait a few weeks to receive it. Don't worry, though. If I do get a copy I'll post comments here.
