The Flowers of Vashnoi (Vorkosigan Saga (Chronological) #14.1) Reviews

  • Debbie
    May 21, 2018

    I'd thought the author was done with this series and I'm delighted to be wrong. This short novella picks up after the events of Captain Vorpatril's Alliance and features Lady Ekaterin and Enrique Borgos (mainly from A Civil Campaign) as they use Enriques bio-engineered bugs to try a...

    ?Is it still a victory if you don?t get the credit?" There's nothing to really rate here. This is far, far away from the space opera called Vorkosigan Saga. And I still stand by my opinion that everything worth saying was said by the end of The Civil Campaign. But it prove...

    Ekaterine sighed. "Is this all going to work?" Her harassed gesture around encompassed everything: the zone, the radbug project, the district, far too many decades of inherited history. Miles vented a mask-muffled noise, not quite a laugh. "It's not as though we can stop trying." ...

    This novella is one of those stories where it's difficult to decide whether to round "Liked" up or not. Naturally, the writing is excellent, as expected from LMB: vivid, clear, and literate. The emotional and philosophical truths and insights are balanced with an interesting plot. The ...

    This is a nice little short story/novella, set just after Captain Vorpatril's Alliance in the series chronology. Ekaterin Vorkosigan is working with Enrique Borgos (of A Civil Campaign fame) to develop a way to clean up the still-radioactive site of Vorkosigan Vashnoi. Naturally, they ...

    A Miles (or rather Ekaterin) Vorkosigan short-story. I feel like this is a book-end story to Mountains of Mourning and somewhat wish I had re-read that story before reading this one. The theme here is clearly one of legacy. Toxic legacies of conflicts in the past (both military, com...

    Lovely science cockroaches <3 ...

    Miles Vorkosigan?s wife Ekaterine is one of my favorite characters in the Vorkosigan saga, second only to Cordelia. This novella is Ekaterine?s story, and I expected to love it much more than I actually did. It is a sad story, a story of forgotten people. Ekaterine is her true sel...

    It's always a delight to make a trip back to Vorkosigan saga, even when it's a short trip that doesn't bring all that much new material. Ekaterin is amazing and the image of Vashnoi as a garden - worth the trip. ...

    If you are checking reviews on this small book, chances are you have already decided to read it. No fear - you will not be disappointed. I was in turns dismayed, surprised, delighted and relieved by the story. By all means read it, the world is a better place because of it. ...

    It's there anything better than an unexpected Vorkosigan novella? No. There is NOT. This one is a delight though in the more serious vein of Mountains of Mourning, taking place deep inside the Vorkosigan district. Ekaterin is always a lovely character to ride along with, partly because...

    http://delivreenlivres.blogspot.com/2... Haaa, quel plaisir anticipé quand l'annonce d'un nouveau texte dans la Saga Vorkosigan arrive. Celui ci est une novella assez courte et n'a malheureusement pas la profondeur ni l'humour des autres romans de la série mais ça reste un texte...

    Pushing the envelope. Compassion. A snapshot of a character who isn't usually the focus of stories. All of these apply to *The Flowers of Vashnoi.* It's a wonderful little story, makes me think about the story **Aftermaths**, which is often attached to *Shards of Honor*, but has al...

    Bujold's Vorkosigan novellas have always been strong. This, for all its fancifulness, fits right in. I loved Ekaterin as the POV character, I've been wanting inside her head for a long time. I understand that I haven't a shred of objectivity about this series, it's one that I know so w...

    I remember Miles once thinking of himself as the man who owns Vorkosigan's Vashnoi. (I think it was in Memory.) It was a moment when he recognizes that he's not just stubborn, but bone-deep obdurate. Where others might see a lost cause and give up, he digs in and does long-range planni...

    Very similar to the story Mountains of Mourning, except this time it was Ekaterin instead of Miles investigating. Enjoyable tale, but very short. I was kind of more interested in what was happening at Miles' meeting and with the kids back home, than the actual plot of this story. ...

    Video review: https://youtu.be/uyIQWu_dVhs ...

    Ekaterin! Re-engineered butterbugs! ...

    I enjoy how new Bujold stories just materialize unexpectedly now, available immediately, in easily digestible page counts. Nobody had any reason to think there would be another Vorkosigan story, and poof, here one is! I had always wondered what happened with Enrique & Martya, an...

    Fun! A solid Ekaterin story about Barrayaran bioethics. She has a Mountains of Mourning-esque rite of passage, with Dr. Borgos as a capable backup. ...

    Miles and Ekaterin Vorkosigan have been married for four years now, and in addition to Ekaterin's son Nikki, they have two children of their own, toddlers Sasha and Helen. Aral and Cordelia have gone off to Sergyar as Viceroy and Vicereine, and Miles and Ekaterin have taken on responsi...

    The first (and hopefully not last) Vorkosigan that I'm here to read on release! Woo! We're back with Ekaterin and Miles. And our favourite scientist Enrique Borgos who has now been successfully married to Martya Koudelka, and we're able to see the continuing work with the horrible b...

    It's a Barrayar novella. I would have loved it just for that, but as usual the author exceeded my expectations. This is a delightful return to Barrayar and a pleasure to read. ...

    You know what this series is? It?s Anne of Green Gables. What is Vokosigan Surleau but Avonlea at the edge of space? ...

    I will read anything Lois writes that takes place in this universe. This isn't the most emotionally packed story, nor is it the deepest or wittiest, or even the best plotted of the series. But I still enjoyed it as it was a chance to see old friends. This is a quieter novella than ...

    A pleasant novella focusing on Ekaterina and the (literal) fall-out of the Cetagandan invasion, but lacking a sense of real urgency. The humanitarian stakes are important, however, as is always the case with the Vorkosigan stories. If you are already a Vorkosigan fan, you will enjoy re...

    I'd thought the author was done with this series and I'm delighted to be wrong. This short novella picks up after the events of Captain Vorpatril's Alliance and features Lady Ekaterin and Enrique Borgos (mainly from A Civil Campaign) as they use Enriques bio-engineered bugs to try a...

    ?Is it still a victory if you don?t get the credit?" There's nothing to really rate here. This is far, far away from the space opera called Vorkosigan Saga. And I still stand by my opinion that everything worth saying was said by the end of The Civil Campaign. But it prove...

    Ekaterine sighed. "Is this all going to work?" Her harassed gesture around encompassed everything: the zone, the radbug project, the district, far too many decades of inherited history. Miles vented a mask-muffled noise, not quite a laugh. "It's not as though we can stop trying." ...

    This novella is one of those stories where it's difficult to decide whether to round "Liked" up or not. Naturally, the writing is excellent, as expected from LMB: vivid, clear, and literate. The emotional and philosophical truths and insights are balanced with an interesting plot. The ...

    This is a nice little short story/novella, set just after Captain Vorpatril's Alliance in the series chronology. Ekaterin Vorkosigan is working with Enrique Borgos (of A Civil Campaign fame) to develop a way to clean up the still-radioactive site of Vorkosigan Vashnoi. Naturally, they ...

    A Miles (or rather Ekaterin) Vorkosigan short-story. I feel like this is a book-end story to Mountains of Mourning and somewhat wish I had re-read that story before reading this one. The theme here is clearly one of legacy. Toxic legacies of conflicts in the past (both military, com...

    Miles Vorkosigan?s wife Ekaterine is one of my favorite characters in the Vorkosigan saga, second only to Cordelia. This novella is Ekaterine?s story, and I expected to love it much more than I actually did. It is a sad story, a story of forgotten people. Ekaterine is her true sel...

    It's always a delight to make a trip back to Vorkosigan saga, even when it's a short trip that doesn't bring all that much new material. Ekaterin is amazing and the image of Vashnoi as a garden - worth the trip. ...

    If you are checking reviews on this small book, chances are you have already decided to read it. No fear - you will not be disappointed. I was in turns dismayed, surprised, delighted and relieved by the story. By all means read it, the world is a better place because of it. ...

    It's there anything better than an unexpected Vorkosigan novella? No. There is NOT. This one is a delight though in the more serious vein of Mountains of Mourning, taking place deep inside the Vorkosigan district. Ekaterin is always a lovely character to ride along with, partly because...

    http://delivreenlivres.blogspot.com/2... Haaa, quel plaisir anticipé quand l'annonce d'un nouveau texte dans la Saga Vorkosigan arrive. Celui ci est une novella assez courte et n'a malheureusement pas la profondeur ni l'humour des autres romans de la série mais ça reste un texte...

    Pushing the envelope. Compassion. A snapshot of a character who isn't usually the focus of stories. All of these apply to *The Flowers of Vashnoi.* It's a wonderful little story, makes me think about the story **Aftermaths**, which is often attached to *Shards of Honor*, but has al...

    Bujold's Vorkosigan novellas have always been strong. This, for all its fancifulness, fits right in. I loved Ekaterin as the POV character, I've been wanting inside her head for a long time. I understand that I haven't a shred of objectivity about this series, it's one that I know so w...

    I remember Miles once thinking of himself as the man who owns Vorkosigan's Vashnoi. (I think it was in Memory.) It was a moment when he recognizes that he's not just stubborn, but bone-deep obdurate. Where others might see a lost cause and give up, he digs in and does long-range planni...

    Very similar to the story Mountains of Mourning, except this time it was Ekaterin instead of Miles investigating. Enjoyable tale, but very short. I was kind of more interested in what was happening at Miles' meeting and with the kids back home, than the actual plot of this story. ...

    A new Vorkosiverse story this year was so unexpected and I?m so glad that it?s such a great story too. Like the series as a whole, this is a story about family and legacy and reckoning with the past. The legacy is Miles?s, but the story is Ekaterin?s and that works surprisin...

    A pleasant novella focusing on Ekaterina and the (literal) fall-out of the Cetagandan invasion, but lacking a sense of real urgency. The humanitarian stakes are important, however, as is always the case with the Vorkosigan stories. If you are already a Vorkosigan fan, you will enjoy re...

    I love the Vorkosigan series (well anything by Bujold really) so devoured this novella in one sitting. I liked how being married to Miles has influenced Ekaterine; she is very much Lady Vorkosigan in her own quiet way. Vashnoi's troubled history was introduced very early in the series ...

    I remember Miles once thinking of himself as the man who owns Vorkosigan's Vashnoi. (I think it was in Memory.) It was a moment when he recognizes that he's not just stubborn, but bone-deep obdurate. Where others might see a lost cause and give up, he digs in and does long-range planni...

    Miles and Ekaterin Vorkosigan have been married for four years now, and in addition to Ekaterin's son Nikki, they have two children of their own, toddlers Sasha and Helen. Aral and Cordelia have gone off to Sergyar as Viceroy and Vicereine, and Miles and Ekaterin have taken on responsi...

    The first (and hopefully not last) Vorkosigan that I'm here to read on release! Woo! We're back with Ekaterin and Miles. And our favourite scientist Enrique Borgos who has now been successfully married to Martya Koudelka, and we're able to see the continuing work with the horrible b...

    ?Is it still a victory if you don?t get the credit?" There's nothing to really rate here. This is far, far away from the space opera called Vorkosigan Saga. And I still stand by my opinion that everything worth saying was said by the end of The Civil Campaign. But it prove...

    Ekaterine sighed. "Is this all going to work?" Her harassed gesture around encompassed everything: the zone, the radbug project, the district, far too many decades of inherited history. Miles vented a mask-muffled noise, not quite a laugh. "It's not as though we can stop trying." ...

    This novella is one of those stories where it's difficult to decide whether to round "Liked" up or not. Naturally, the writing is excellent, as expected from LMB: vivid, clear, and literate. The emotional and philosophical truths and insights are balanced with an interesting plot. The ...

    A new Vorkosiverse story this year was so unexpected and I?m so glad that it?s such a great story too. Like the series as a whole, this is a story about family and legacy and reckoning with the past. The legacy is Miles?s, but the story is Ekaterin?s and that works surprisin...

    Loved it. Wanted more. ...

    A pleasant novella focusing on Ekaterina and the (literal) fall-out of the Cetagandan invasion, but lacking a sense of real urgency. The humanitarian stakes are important, however, as is always the case with the Vorkosigan stories. If you are already a Vorkosigan fan, you will enjoy re...

    I love the Vorkosigan series (well anything by Bujold really) so devoured this novella in one sitting. I liked how being married to Miles has influenced Ekaterine; she is very much Lady Vorkosigan in her own quiet way. Vashnoi's troubled history was introduced very early in the series ...

    Oh I was glad to see that come up and I enjoyed reading it. I'm all for seeing more of Ekaterin, and more of the Vorkosigan District. Serious topics and issues, but also so many places I laughed out loud. Bujold is a buy-on-sight, whenever she puts something out. I miss her longer book...

    A Miles (or rather Ekaterin) Vorkosigan short-story. I feel like this is a book-end story to Mountains of Mourning and somewhat wish I had re-read that story before reading this one. The theme here is clearly one of legacy. Toxic legacies of conflicts in the past (both military, com...

    I'd thought the author was done with this series and I'm delighted to be wrong. This short novella picks up after the events of Captain Vorpatril's Alliance and features Lady Ekaterin and Enrique Borgos (mainly from A Civil Campaign) as they use Enriques bio-engineered bugs to try a...

    ?Is it still a victory if you don?t get the credit?" There's nothing to really rate here. This is far, far away from the space opera called Vorkosigan Saga. And I still stand by my opinion that everything worth saying was said by the end of The Civil Campaign. But it prove...

    Ekaterine sighed. "Is this all going to work?" Her harassed gesture around encompassed everything: the zone, the radbug project, the district, far too many decades of inherited history. Miles vented a mask-muffled noise, not quite a laugh. "It's not as though we can stop trying." ...

    Miles Vorkosigan?s wife Ekaterine is one of my favorite characters in the Vorkosigan saga, second only to Cordelia. This novella is Ekaterine?s story, and I expected to love it much more than I actually did. It is a sad story, a story of forgotten people. Ekaterine is her true sel...

    It's always a delight to make a trip back to Vorkosigan saga, even when it's a short trip that doesn't bring all that much new material. Ekaterin is amazing and the image of Vashnoi as a garden - worth the trip. ...

    If you are checking reviews on this small book, chances are you have already decided to read it. No fear - you will not be disappointed. I was in turns dismayed, surprised, delighted and relieved by the story. By all means read it, the world is a better place because of it. ...

    http://delivreenlivres.blogspot.com/2... Haaa, quel plaisir anticipé quand l'annonce d'un nouveau texte dans la Saga Vorkosigan arrive. Celui ci est une novella assez courte et n'a malheureusement pas la profondeur ni l'humour des autres romans de la série mais ça reste un texte...

    Pushing the envelope. Compassion. A snapshot of a character who isn't usually the focus of stories. All of these apply to *The Flowers of Vashnoi.* It's a wonderful little story, makes me think about the story **Aftermaths**, which is often attached to *Shards of Honor*, but has al...

    Bujold's Vorkosigan novellas have always been strong. This, for all its fancifulness, fits right in. I loved Ekaterin as the POV character, I've been wanting inside her head for a long time. I understand that I haven't a shred of objectivity about this series, it's one that I know so w...

    I remember Miles once thinking of himself as the man who owns Vorkosigan's Vashnoi. (I think it was in Memory.) It was a moment when he recognizes that he's not just stubborn, but bone-deep obdurate. Where others might see a lost cause and give up, he digs in and does long-range planni...

    Very similar to the story Mountains of Mourning, except this time it was Ekaterin instead of Miles investigating. Enjoyable tale, but very short. I was kind of more interested in what was happening at Miles' meeting and with the kids back home, than the actual plot of this story. ...

    A new Vorkosiverse story this year was so unexpected and I?m so glad that it?s such a great story too. Like the series as a whole, this is a story about family and legacy and reckoning with the past. The legacy is Miles?s, but the story is Ekaterin?s and that works surprisin...
