Hoy toca comentar una recomendación que viene por parte de Jordi de Sinaudiencia y que no es la primera vez que hace. Como ando con algo menos de tiempo de lectura porque este mes no estoy usando el tren, paradójicamente tiene que ver con que he tenido que tirar mi coche a la basura, voy tardando mas en leer, pero no quería yo acabar el año sin meterme en esta saga de un género al que no soy nada dado en literatura, como es la Space Opera.

He empezado por el 4º libro siguiendo el orden sugerido por Jordi y es el que nos pone cronológicamente en el comienzo de la andadura militar de Miles Vorkosigan, nuestro protagonista. Y este joven Miles se hace enseguida con el lector por su asombrosa capacidad para liarse la manta a la cabeza, echarle oratoria, morro y desparpajo al asunto y salir airoso de los líos, para liarlos aun mas y convertirlos en situaciones que se sostienen por el malabarismo mas peligroso posible.

Estamos en un mundo futuro, el espacio es el campo de juegos, hay planetas, imperios, viejas casas nobiliarias, sistemas de castas, guerras, mercenarios, leyes militares heredadas desde Napoleón y en uno de estos planetas viven los Vorkosigan, condes del emperador y partes del sistema retro nobiliario futurista en el que se desarrolla la historia.

Miles es el hijo del conde Vorkosigan y por un ataque químico estando su madre embarazada, nació con ciertas desventajas físicas de esas que dan carisma a algunos queridos personajes. Es bajito, tullido contrahecho de huesos fragiles, patológicamente enamorado de la hija de su guardaespaldas con la cual ha crecido, fracasado aspirante a la la escuela de oficiales y mamonazo pendenciero de brillante intelecto y ulcera sangrante, espíritu estratégico y flor en el culo, todo ello y bastante mas.

Aquí Miles convertirá un viaje sencillo al planeta de su parte materna en una aventura de malabarismos que en cualquier momento puede convertirse en desastre. Se hará con una nave de transporte de mala muerte por ciertas circunstancias, y de ahí acabara en la situación militar mas extrema posible saliendo adelante con su capacidad para meterse en un lio tras otro, vendiendo neveras a los esquimales, por decirlo de alguna manera sin contar mas.

Para ser un género literario que no frecuento en absoluto, me ha divertido bastante y es que Miles, por no decir el Almirante Naismith, es un tipo peculiar y muy cercano a esos otros tullidos que tanto nos hacen disfrutar en otras sagas, normalmente a base de ingenio, suerte desmedida (de ambos signos) y amargura filosófica. Muy recomendable y voy a seguir con este Miles Vorkosigan a ver como le va.
