Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Miles is one of the most enjoyable characters in science fiction.” School Library Journal
“Gardner’s characters are layered and real despite the highly imagined world in which they live. His narration is at once straightforward and well crafted. Gardner’s voice seems plucked right from 1950s sci-fi serials, a quality that adds to the atmosphere and makes this a fun listen.” AudioFile
“Grover Gardner narrates as if he has all the time in the world, and the story is all the better for it.” Audiofile
“Winterfair Gifts is fun, skillful storytelling set in an SF universe. This is a gentle romance with a bittersweet twist. A romance story dudes can enjoy. Bujold is a fine writer and Winterfair Gifts is a damn fine audiobook…[Gardner is] a skilled narrator and is well chosen for the Vorkosigan saga.” SFFAudio.com
