selfindulgentbitch: (the end)
[personal profile] selfindulgentbitch
I picked up earlier works in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan saga when Baen was giving them away. I liked it well enough and bought Cordelia's Honor for background.

It started out strong, but I was disappointed by the end. Cordelia is a cipher to me and possibly a stupid one. Why did she love him? Did she have any thoughts whatsoever about her status on Barrayar? Did she like being valued only as a gestator? Feel any desire to improve the lot of women in general? Culture shock? Boredom? Did she miss her mom? Hate her mom?

And why would a 33 yr old woman be concerned about being "too old" for kids? Especially when they gestate kids in containers? The world just felt very poorly thought out and it has that claustrophobic feel of bad romances where the characters have no feelings outside of that one relationship and everything else is subordinate. And yet her love for him is based on what? Their common hobbies?

But it was my first book of the new year. 2013 = 1 so far
