Miles Vokosigan

So, because of sillymagpie I have started reading the Miles Vorkosigan books.

Not great literature, but a fun light read. Space Opera and other adventures.

Miles Vorkosigan reminds me of kinnerc. Except for the liking girls thing, kinnerc likes big furry men, but Miles likes big strong women so it's sort of similar. Just the way Miles acts and his attitude totally makes me think of kinnerc. The childhood full of major surgeries, strange physical responses, and the stubbornness. "I can't help it, sir, if people give me the wrong orders."

I'm also liking Emperor Gregor. He's a nice character and good at his job.

Miles reminds me of Doc too. That's who I see in my mind's eye when I read them. Sort of Doc idealized.

Did you get the book I sent?

Ah, I see you did.
Yes, exactly.

I did get the book. I sent you a thank you note through LJ's message system just a few hours ago.


Thank you. It was a plesant surprise :-)
I also like Miles' parents, Cordelia and Aral, quite a lot. Sadly, they don't get much in the way of roles except in Barryar.
And "Shards of Honor" where they first meet.
