> Do you like or dislike the book _Komarr_, and why?
What's not to like?
I adore _Komarr_. I'm an Ekaterin fan for starters (and, to a lesser
degree, I get a big kick out of Lord Auditor Vorthys, who reminds me of my
dad the engineer in some ways). I love watching Miles go all giddy over
Ekaterin, just one book after all his mental snarkery over Gregor going
through exactly the same thing. There's something incredibly satisfying
about watching Ekaterin escape Tien (it brings back triumphant memories of
my own). And watching her save the day. I like Nikki, too.
And, to agree with Natali, the girlfriend litany is worth the price of
admission all by itself. Not to mention "Shopping? That's an offer seldom
made to the son of my mother." And the whole shopping sequence, for that
It's the middle book of my favorite three of the series, too. It almost
even makes up for _Memory_ just having ended.
