Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen

Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen - Lois McMaster Bujold Dull: even everyone's favourite spoiler made only for a "So what?" reaction. No story, no conflict, no anything.
Badly written: not that Bujold's style was exactly streamlined before, but at least in previous books she'd stopped short of overloading the text with obviousness.
Wish I hadn't read this.
