“Mõnus lugemine algusest peale. Milesi tegelane on kasvanud ning muutunud veidi tasakaalukamaks - kuid see ei tähenda, et pahandused oleks väga väiksemaks läinud. Ootan juba Peeglitantsu, et saaks Marki ja Milesi teemat edasi lugeda.”see full review » see other reviews »
“Brothers in Arms is marked as the 8th work in Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga and most definitely is not the place to start. I definitely recommend the series as a whole. Miles Vorkosigan, the primary character in most of the books is a literary heart throb, and this series is about as good as space opera gets. I like that Miles isn't the usual handsome or brawny hero you find in this genre. Rather, like his nautical counterpart and literary ancestor Horatio Hornblower, Miles succeeds on his wits--underlined by physical disabilities from birth he's had to overcome. This book in particular depends on a recurring theme that runs through the series about identity. In the first novel featuring Miles, The Warrior's Apprentice, Miles created another persona, as the head of a mercenary space fleet. In this novel that role and the one as a Barrayar officer are clashing that goes to the heart of how Miles defines himself. Add to that Miles discovers he has a clone--one meant to replace him by his enemies--and that he has to try to make a brother. There are plenty of hints at the end that this new brother may cause plenty of problems in the future. As usual, an entertaining story, which given his double sometimes plays close to farce.”Lisa Maria C wrote this review Sunday, September 22, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“Thrilling escapades combine with madcap situations in this fine novel in Bujold’s military space opera series featuring Miles Vorkosigan. In this tale, Mile’s position as a lieutenant in the Barrayar imperial security forces and hereditary Lord comes into conflict with his secret role as an admiral of a mercenary fleet used for undercover operations. The fleet has fled to old Earth after liberating a prison camp from an enemy empire and struggles with bankruptcy when their payment mysteriously doesn’t arrive. Despite Earth being a neutral world at peace, the embassy can’t protect him from various enemies that come out of the woodwork, and he has trouble sorting out which persona is their target. To keep his cover from being blown by a journalist, he makes up a story that the admiral is an illegal clone, an invention that takes on a life of its own and propels the tale in a virtually Shakespearean direction.
“Miles discovers he has a clone/brother. Good action and humanity in this continuing saga. Not for everyone, but I sure like it!”Kerri Lynn wrote this review Tuesday, October 25, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Ovaj nastavak Milesovih pustolovina događa se na Zemlji, točnije u Londonu, tijekom dopusta Dendariijskih plaćenika. Naravno da Miles opet upada u neprilike, koje ga prate na svakom koraku i u svakom kutku galaksije. Nešto poput veze Herculea Poirota i zločina. ;)
Ovdje imamo klona, pripadnike raznih planeta koji pokušavaju ubiti Milesa (što baruna Vorkosigana, što admirala Naismitha), prvo pojavljivanje Komarra u priči, Milesovu 'vezu' s Elli Quinn, rođaka Ivana Vorpatrila, Dendariijske plaćenike, barrayarsko veleposlanstvo, par incidenata...
Malo slabiji nastavak, ali opet mi je bolji od, do sada, najlošije Vorske igre, pa je 5, s minusom, jer Bujoldica i dalje majstorski plete radnju, uvodi likove i razriješava sve. ”
