A Civil Campaign: A Comedy of Biology and Manners (Miles Vorkosigan Adventures) - Lois McMaster Bujold

A Civil Campaign: A Comedy of Biology and Manners (Miles Vorkosigan Adventures) - Lois McMaster Bujold

If you relish costume adventure in an intergalactic society starring strong, convincing ... more

male and female characters, you'll adore the
Vorkosigan Series. If you haven't met Miles
Vorkosigan, whose brilliance, manic energy, and
unstoppable determination make him a
larger-than-life hero despite his dwarfish
stature, pick up Komarr and A Civil Campaign. Read
them, and then go back and catch the previous nine
books (10 if you count Ethan of Athos, which
features not Miles but his partner, Ellie Quinn);
or read the series in order, starting with the
romance of Miles's parents in Shards of Honor. A
Civil Campaign opens where Komarr ends with Miles
determined to court Ekaterin. Unfortunately, his
approach is described as "General Romeo
Vorkosigan, the one-man strike force" by his
father. The potential for comic disaster increases
when Miles' clone brother Mark arrives. He has
brought a brilliant but scatterbrained scientist
who has created a bug producing a perfect food:
bug butter. They set up a lab in the basement of
Vorkosigan House. Mark has also found a nice
Barrayaran girl--she even likes the bugs--with
whom he got together on the sexually liberated
world of Beta. But now Kareen's living at home.
Naturally, disaster strikes, repeatedly and on all
fronts.Bujold unfolds her comedy of manners while
continuing to explore familiar themes: the
difficulties in becoming a strong adult woman in a
patriarchy; the need for trust and honesty in
relationships between the sexes; the difference
between appearance and identity; and the impact of
advanced biotechnologies on society. A Civil
Campaign is a sure-fire Hugo and Nebula award
nominee, likely to add another statue to Bujold's
already full shelf. It's charming, touching, and
quite funny too. --Nona Vero
