I started almost at the end, because although they had been recommended by 
heaps of people, the blurb and cover on the first one were really 
unappealing to me. So I started with one (Komarr) that had a blurb that 
sounded intriguing. Then I read them all in an odd order - just the way I 
managed to get hold of them, and *then* I read them chronologically. I 
would recommend this latter course, if you can get hold of the first book. 
I would suggest you do not read Mirror Dance or Memory first, because they 
will have a much bigger impact if you know the back story. Cetaganda is my 
fave "early" one.
