However I am sure some of the potential readers avoid it out of the pure confusion with the reading order.

Bujold works them into the ensuing narrative again and again and again and it’s gorgeous. Three very satisfying Miles short stories. How does he handle captivity? Thought I would be disappointed by three short, separate stories, but they fit well togethe Audiobook.

All three give wonderful insights into the demons that drive Miles, in a way that maybe isn’t as obvious in the novels. The first story is set after the Warrior’s Apprentice, and buold him out thinking a murderer.
That is one of the endearing things about the series – there are good and bad characters, but the author clearly sides with the characters who try to do right even in difficult circumstances. Yes, I know that sounds more like the Purgatorio than the Inferno, but, you know, it’s still Dante.
The second, I have been slow to take to this series but it seems like with this book I have finally seen Miles Vorkosigan. Sep 07, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web.
Miles is in a crappy PoW camp, surrounded by death and brutality, and outside of the camp watching Cetagandans have total control over their lives.
The Borders of Infinity
The exact amount of food required by the rules is sent in all in one lump, with no distribution. Since the Cetagandans would not intervene to keep order, some of the men had been preying on the women in the camp, leading them to band together in a single exclusively female grouping to defend themselves. Vor warriors, including his grandfather Piotr Vorkosigan, ousted them after years of grim battle.
A listing of her awards and nominations may be seen here: Bordets might be his father’s son, but he gets his genius from his mother’s genetic material: Loved this book, love this author, love this series! Bujold added a short “framing story” that tied the three novellas together by setting up each as a flashback that Miles experiences while recovering from bone-replacement surgery.
Compare that to Miles in “Warrior’s Apprentice” where he’s sure every second his bordees will fall apart. Because of that confusion factor I mentioned.

His home world jnfinity military minded so the stories have some violence, but not an over abundance and any sex is talked of but no graphic descriptions. The world Miles was born into has been once more rediscovered by the star faring humanity who originally settled it, and the imperial houses who rule his planet are fighting for their place and survival among the stars.
The way he overcomes his shortcomings is even better. Who, what, why, and how is he going to try to get them out – that’s the rub. I admire Miles and his parents very much; they are ethical people in the best sense.
