Previously I have been opposed to cloning on ethical grounds, because of its high failure rate. But now I realize that humanity should devote all its efforts to perfecting human cloning, with the single aim of cloning Lois McMaster Bujold. Her family, childhood, upbringing, education, and adult life should be replicated as closely as possible for the LMB clones. Lois McMaster Bujold and her clones can then go on writing in perpetuity, and we can ensure that the world will be able to enjoy magnificent new Vorkosigan saga novels like this one until the end of time.
Okay, a slightly more serious review: Captain Vorpatril's Alliance is a Regency-romance in the style of Friday's Child that turns into a caper story, cloaked in a space opera.
