I'm going to break this up into two parts, actually, because I have Lots Of Things to say about Chapter 7-8 and some of the topics it brings up (rape in general and particularly in the military is one of those things that I have Opinions about).

Chapter 4-6 Ramblings )

I'm still thoroughly enjoying this book.  It's space opera, but it's really good space opera, with characters that I love.  Even minor characters manage to get a lot of characterization and jump off the page--I expected Koudelka's fate from shortly after we met him, but I still felt it like a kick in the gut when Cordelia found out what happened to him.  I quite like Bujold's writing style, with occasional lines that really stick with me.  Knowing that this is one of her earliest works, I'm expecting really great things from later books in the series.
