Reading Rangers #2: Barrayar by Lois McMaster Bujold

24 Jul

Hello, Rangers! In our second installment of Reading Rangers, Trish, Paul, Stina, and Kate dive into the second book (internal chronology) of the Vorkosigan Saga, Barrayar, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Trish and Paul offer the experienced voices, while Stina and Kate are mostly new.  There is quite a bit to unpack in this book, including why Cordelia is homesick, what the hell is up with the toxic patriarchy of the Vors, and how awesome cave systems are for screwing with stupid soldiers.

Next time, we’ll be discussing The Warrior’s Apprentice. Kate might have actually cried a little when she found out it wasn’t all about Cordelia.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

That’s all, folks!  Thanks for listening.  See you next week

    When we were talking about Princess Kareen, somehow my mouth said Prince Pavel in referring to her horrible late husband, but of course I should have said Prince Serg. Other than that, I thought we had a really good conversation about the book!
