Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold

I've read this before so just skimmed an hour or so to make sure I remembered it. It turned out to be one of our rare books for the book group: everybody liked it. There were two guys who hadn't read any LMB; one won't read more (he just started reading modern SF a few years ago when he joined us), but the other asked about the rest of hers. We explained how it's probably her least book -- almost a pumped-up story -- but it was good and her others were better. He said he'll have to read the others, but he only reads one book a month (on commuter rail) so it will take him some time.

The annoying part was when 10 of us went to TGIFriday's because I had a coupon for 20% off the orders of the entire table. The actual taking orders and delivering wasn't that bad, but she should have put the right groups on each page instead of making a single one for each of us. It took our end of the table (the other end was all paid by Dad) almost 20 minutes for her to get the checks right.

That seems to be a constant reward from Verizon, but I don't know that we'll want to do it as a large group again.
