Hmm. (checks calendar) when Komarr came out I had already been married 
for a few years although we had no children. No abuse, and no firsthand 
contact w ith abusive relationships. I did like her from the first, in a 
sort of quiet and low-key way. If she reminded me of anyone, it was 
probably of Harriet Vane (in her pre-Peter, bad relationship days) by 
Dorothy Sayers.

I was okay with Tien's death scene (he had it coming so very badly) and 
the do-or-die in the docking bay. But the understated scene of "I'd 
better offer sex soon, even though I dislike doing it with him" made me 
green around the gills.
