Dr. Ethan Urquhart is Chief of Biology at a District Reproduction Center. He delivers babies from uterine replicators. You see, on Athos there are no women. In fact, the planet is forbidden to them. Isolated from the galactic community by distance and a lack of exploitable resources, the Athosians have peacefully lived their peculiar social experiment for 200 years. But now, the ovarian cultures dating back to the original settlement of the planet are giving out. With the future of Athos at stake, Ethan is chosen on behalf of his cloistered fellows for a unique mission: to brave the wider universe in quest of new ovarian tissue cultures to replenish Athos' dwindling stocks. Along the way, he must tangle with covert operatives, killers, telepathy, interplanetary politics, and perhaps most disturbingly--an indomitable female mercenary named Elli Quinn.… (més)

Ethan of Athos begins as if it's going to do the classic scifi thing of exploring a deeply weird society; in this case, an all-male world where women are literally the root of all evil. Instead, it takes a more cosmopolitan member of said society and throws them directly into an action spy novel far away from this world as he's trying to find a way to replenish their supply of ovaries (not a euphemism--literally the organ). So it turns out to be a fish-out-of-water story where the titular Ethan has to work with a female (of course) spy to figure out why people are trying to kill him and what happened with the original ovary shipment, which should've been routine but instead got mixed up in a top secret cover-up. On the whole this was an entertaining read, but the hugely questionable ethical decision at the end definitely made me scratch my head. ( )

One of my favorites in the series. ( )

Another fun outing from Bujold, and proves it's not necessary to include a Vorkosigan protagonist for the book to be interesting. Loved that an unassuming gay obstetrician was our unlikely hero. I'm becoming more-and-more impressed by this author--lots of writers do action-packed light breezy, but they can seem slight and unimportant, silly even--but Bujold's pretty much pitch-perfect all the way through, balancing just the right amount of plot, characterization, world-building, etc. (Like how marvelous and fresh Jane Austen can seem, compared to some of the drearier Victorians who followed her).

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve! ( )

It reads as a backwater boy gets thrown into intergalactic espionage, but I particularly liked the setup for a planet of nothing but men eventually becoming the galaxy's largest repository of something that would spoil your reading of the book if you learned about it before-hand.

As sci-fi as social commentary, it wasn't very deep, but it did have significance for the eighties.

Overall, the novel was intended and succeeded at being a light adventure, but I'm slightly shallow in what I want from Ms. Bujold. I wanted more Miles and he was just referred to several times only. That's really quite okay, though, because our heroine was quite a handful. ( )

Brilliant fun! Take this mostly horrible scifi concept of an all-female planet, reverse it to an all-male planet, then take it *seriously*. This poor protagonist doctor, sent out into the hostile and horrfyingly feminine universe, meets the brilliant Ellie Quinn of all people. It was SO MUCH FUN.
(Also, we get a gay happy end, in a way? Awwwww.) ( )
