I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
This was a fun adventure to read. I could easily see myself meeting someone like Cordelia, where she's sympathetic to the human race, but will have no problem coming after whoever hurts her family. Bujold's tone and voice were great. I would love to eventually read more of her books.
