Memory is an enjoyable read that marks a turning point in the saga. Miles Vorkosigan, our lovable mutie, grows into the person that he really is. And it’s done so convincingly that we rarely even think that Admiral Naismith will forever be no more. I read this after the later books in the series, but I have to say that this is one of the best books ever – it doesn’t have the fast-paced action of the earlier books nor the romantic slower-paced drama of the later books, but it’s a classic all by it’s own. I love this.
