Free! Free Fallin’…

On my brother’s suggestion (the brother with no website), I took a look at the Vorkosigan saga of Lois McMaster Bujold. I don’t think Falling Free was the first written, but I believe it was the first chronologically. I liked it, but even if I hadn’t, I would have given the books another shot. After seeing how Asimov’s Foundation series went downhill when he started writing prequels, I was prepared for this not to be interesting. It was, though, and I was pleased that the SF wasn’t too ridiculous. I’ll accept a macguffin or two in order to get the plot rolling, and in this case it was a bunch of genetically re-engineered humans designed to live in zero-G. Instead of legs, they have a second set of arms where their legs would be. They’re kept in a kind of biological slavery on the basis that they aren’t “human” and are “property”. Anyway, it was pretty good and I’ll give the rest of the series a read, especially since this isn’t considered to be one of her best and it’s still passable.
