Story: ok. Art: spectacular.

A couple super-beautiful immortals running around messily killing stuff, ultimately going up against Merlin who wants to open Pandora’s Gate.

The story is pretty thin and it never feels like there are any stakes. It mostly

The Miles train keeps on chugging. I really enjoyed this one, with the slight exception that the potential new girlfriend’s life circumstances worked out a little too pat. But really I’m not reading this for the high drama, just the fun adventure. Th ...more

This is a tremendous entry in Miles Vorkosigan adventures. For the first third not much happens and I was enthralled. Then the plot truly kicks in and I was riveted. This has all the stuff that makes these books so great: snark, heartfelt emotion, Je ...more
Trike and 5 other people liked Laura's review of Memory (Vorkosigan Saga, #10):
Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold
"I think Bujold is showing off. The previous book is awesome space opera with great fight scenes. Also, violent sexual perversity, human trafficking, torture, and some truly disturbing things involving . . . . Yeah. Don’t want my name associated wi..." Read more of this review »

Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold
"I have dearly loved all of the Miles books, for a number of reasons. This one ranks as my favorite. Why? I laughed, snickered and guffawed out loud more times than I can remember, and was genuinely moved by Miles' decision to lay his Peter Pan exi..." Read more of this review »

Joe Abercrombie
“I’ve fought in three campaigns,” he began. “In seven pitched battles. In countless raids and skirmishes and desperate defences, and bloody actions of every kind. I’ve fought in the driving snow, the blasting wind, the middle of the night. I’ve been fighting all my life, one enemy or another, one friend or another. I’ve known little else. I’ve seen men killed for a word, for a look, for nothing at all. A woman tried to stab me once for killing her husband, and I threw her down a well. And that’s far from the worst of it. Life used to be cheap as dirt to me. Cheaper.

“I’ve fought ten single combats and I won them all, but I fought on the wrong side and for all the wrong reasons. I’ve been ruthless, and brutal, and a coward. I’ve stabbed men in the back, burned them, drowned them, crushed them with rocks, killed them asleep, unarmed, or running away. I’ve run away myself more than once. I’ve pissed myself with fear. I’ve begged for my life. I’ve been wounded, often, and badly, and screamed and cried like a baby whose mother took her tit away. I’ve no doubt the world would be a better place if I’d been killed years ago, but I haven’t been, and I don’t know why.”

He looked down at his hands, pink and clean on the stone. “There are few men with more blood on their hands than me. None, that I know of. The Bloody-Nine they call me, my enemies, and there’s a lot of ’em. Always more enemies, and fewer friends. Blood gets you nothing but more blood. It follows me now, always, like my shadow, and like my shadow I can never be free of it. I should never be free of it. I’ve earned it. I’ve deserved it. I’ve sought it out. Such is my punishment.”
Joe Abercrombie, The Blade Itself

“If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original.”

“I guess if I had to pick a spiritual figurehead to possess the deed to the entirety of Earth, I'd go with Buddha, but only because he wouldn't want it.”
