I would also recommend the Chanur series, as it has a very strong voice that isn't twisted up in it's own machinations. (Unlike the Downbelow Station series, Cyteen books, Foreigner series, the Morgaine cycle...)
As someone else said up-thread, her narrative style is often opaque, although I might also call it "involuted" as in Dag's sharing knife. It turns back on itself and then squirrels off into a side direction. I find her narrative voice(s) to be as moral as Aral (mostly), but as twisty as Cavilo.

AKICOTL: What other writings of hers are like the Paladin?
