It's a tough ride, but wow is there a lot of stuff in those books. Hell, the afterword alone, in the Omnibus Edition, is amazing. Here's a quote by Bujold that makes my dizzy with it's awesomeness:. If you want to jump into the Vorkosigan Saga, you can do so at any point, but be aware that the books vary in their amount of romantic content.
Of course by now you've followed my advice and read A Civil Campaign , so that's out the way! Really, A Civil Campaign is the only novel I've read yet by Bujold that qualifies as a true romance novel and I cannot recommend it highly enough. But that doesn't mean that Shards of Honor and Barrayar aren't worth reading as searing observations of love in a difficult world. I inhaled this entire series over summer this year, and fell head over heels in love with it. And Cordelia is such a strong feminist, I loved her attitude.
But the prices for a new paperback are insane!
Shards Of Honor
I know, when I looked at print book options for the series, I was a little horrified. I loved this series. I read it in college. Time to go see if the library has it so i can read it again. I loved this review! I think Bujold is a brilliant and amazing writer.
I listened to them all on audiobook I do a lot of driving and then purchased paper or ebook where I could and reread them. A Civil Campaign is perhaps my favourite, although Paladin of Souls is a close second. Bujold is an incredible author. She is one who has it all! And certainly Shards of Honor and Barrayar are excellent — and the latter book will certainly transform your idea of shopping trips. Hyperactive little git. Oh, Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan, how I love the. That is actually the specific reason I bought an e-reader two years ago.
Excellent series. Lois McMaster Bujold is without a doubt my favorite author, I read her books over and over again, and while I am thrilled and in love and terrified and all those things good books make you feel for the charectors when I finish one I feel as if I learned a little more about being a human. Every time. Vorkisogan is one of my all-time favorite series—despite that, I think the first book Shards of Honor is among the weakest. An interesting thing about this series is that Bujold writes in many different styles.
Some of the books are romances, some are mysteries, and some are military sci-fi. I keep running into words that I know but have never actually said out loud, so I have to pause to think how to pronounce them.

If you want to experience Bujold in all her glory, listen to the Vorkosigan books on audio. Grover gardener is masterful as the narrator. I also loved The Curse of Chalion on audio. The narrator I forget his name was perfect! I disagree about your take on Shards, however. That gives you his back story and a good look at his character.
I was so excited to see that you reviewed a book in one of my favorite series. I just finished Cryoburn, the last in the series.
Another book in the series is supposed to be out soon but I think it takes place before Cryoburn. I love the narrator — these are great audiobooks. I second the vote for the audiobooks! The narrator does a great job. I love that in the midst of the action and the romance, the book presents strong and multilayered characters who navigate moral ambiguity and try to make the right choices.

Cordelia is such an amazing character that, had I read this book before my daughters were born, I might have had to name one of them after her. And yes, by all means, buy these books from Baen where they are readily available in all formats and reasonably priced.

For the ebooks, Baen. Definitely worthwhile.
Miles Vorkosigan, maniacal dwarf mercenary diplomat who can do push ups with his tongue, is one of the most 3D characters in literature of any genre. If I had to choose between Bujold and Pratchett it would be a mighty hard choice. I have to agree with Melinda and the others in that Shards of Honor is one of my all-time favorite books, and Barrayar is simply amazing, too. Cordelia and Aral are both incredible characters. And, of course, so is their son. Paladin of Souls is my favorite fantasy of hers as opposed to science fiction , and also has an amazing female lead.
Someone mentioned Martha Wells—if you want a wonderful fantasy, amazing world building, and an enticing thread of romance, I would definitely recommend her. Her romance is always subtle, but somehow it has such an impact.

I read The Sharing Knife series and the Chalion-verse books ages before I tried the Vorkosigan Saga because ordinarily I vastly prefer fantasy to science fiction. Really, though, Aral is my favorite, slightly edging out Lord Peter on my personal fictional secret boyfriend list. Honor is what you know about yourself. Let your reputation fall where it will. And outlive the bastards. I met Bujold and Pratchett at the same conference once.
Actually it was the second time I met Bujold. The first time, I was on a panel with her. I will never forget how sweet Pratchett was when talking with my teenage daughter. Bujold became one of my favorite authors after reading everything she wrote.
