The Warrior's Apprentice: status update

The Warrior's Apprentice (Vorkosigan Saga, #2) - Lois McMaster Bujold

I have no idea how to do reading status updates on this thing (or even if you can), so here's me so far:


About a third of the way through.  I like Miles, he's sassy and all the self-pity is well tempered by his machinating.  I'm really not sure what the long-term strategy is with hiring all these people but it's offering the prospect of a good long story arc.  The love interest is really uninspiring; hope she gets developed later.  Or killed off, whatever.


I'm in two minds about Bujold's writing.  I can see she's come a long way since the Cordelia books but there's still something very flat about her prose.  She uses these short, choppy sentences that feel very utilitarian and I want Miles' more bitter, internal moments to flow a little more.
