I’m so glad you are enjoying the Vorkosigan saga and I‘m a bit envious remembering the fun during the first reading if the books, especially ‘Memory’.
You pointed out perfectly the difference in the books of the saga. The characters and the universe are the same and well consistent but the ‘pace’ of each story is different. I found Bujold’s saga hardly repetitive, she like to experiment.
I agree Mark is an excellent device. Vor saga is full of opposite characters and cultures; Bujolds use often this contrast to emphasize and to depth her themes.
I love madly Cordelia and Aral, their presence lights up always the story. I like their apparently different natures and I long for another new book with their story or POV.

I own you a reply on ‘Goddesses in every woman’ by JS Bolen. I finished this outstanding book only last Monday, I will reply you asap.

Hi! I'm 2/3rds of the way through "Memory". It's great so far! Miles is developing very well, but, better, we get to know Gregor and Simon Illyia lots better, two characters I've wanted to know better. And Alys Vorpatril -- I've liked her since she gave birth during the uprising. Even Ivan is really coming along. And CORDELIA (my heroine!) has just reappeared. Hot dog!
