I know this is a little OT, but I also know that
there are people on this
list who have read Diplomatic Immunity, and I

Bujold's previous book, A Civil Campaign, was
really brilliant, and funny
and pushed the envelope of the genre a bit in
unexpected ways. DI was a
good read, but I felt it was going a bit

of the earlier stories, without new concepts or
excitements: a revisit of
the ideas from Ceteganda (one of my faves)
without the gender politics.
Also, I get the impression that Miles' character
has stopped developing now
that he has a wife, or maybe this book is just
treading water. Thoughts?

favourite fantasy novel from
a previous thread, I would have to say that
Bujold's Curse of Chalion is up
there, great plot, and I love what she did with
