justira: A purple, gender-ambiguous unicorn pony in the style of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. (lady business)
From: [personal profile] justira
Like I mentioned in the post, Komarr is actually one of my favourites! I really like the plot, I love Ekaterin, and I enjoy the continued worldbuilding. And! Miles growing into his new role! I actually like how Bujold wrapped up the body-birth for Nikki thing in with the other Vor woman stuff, kind of sneaking it in with the mutation/gene-cleaning stuff — you know, women's-labour and all.

I also like how Ekaterin's experience with Tien kind of... helped her be able to stand up to Miles? (and lbr, her experience with Nikki >.>) Miles is an unholy terror and like... Cordelia and Aral raising him, jesus. [personal profile] novin_ha pointed out upstairs how Aral raising Miles meant he didn't have the time to be a father figure to Ivan. I actually like how in Diplomatic Immunity Ekaterin makes Miles slow down and explain and unpack things (not that managing men should be women's work, but still).

But yeah, the expansion on Komarr as a world, and on the mechanics of the Wormhole Nexus, is more stuff that I like about this particular book. I was very sad to leave it off! But basically every book I left off was torture ._.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
