A Rising Thunder (2012)
language
English
4.03 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: How can this be an Honor Harrington book when she doesn't even appear until >150 pages in? And even then does not get the majority of space. Like a lot of series (both books and TV, and seemingly Weber is just following the trend), the grand has taken over the particular, and lar...

review 1: Only for the true Weber completist. This is a short, dull, novel that reads like a transcript of 20-year-old C-Span budget debates. It is all politics and fighting over naval budget requests and the history of the Kingdom of Manticore that leads up to the Honor Harrington series....

review 1: Travis Long made the due scion to visit the naval recruiter at just the right time. Despite his ingrained habit of following all rules, he manages to find a niche in the Mantacorian Navy which allowed him to shine as one seaman/petty officer who could bring in solutions out of l...

review 1: I am wavering on the stars. I liked it, but I think it feels cobbled together. I listened to the audiobook. The reader had slight tendency to make the females whiny, but it wasn't so bad I had to stop listening. It may be just my personal preference, rather than a flaw in the boo...

review 1: Jane Lindskold's Ruthless (3)It's more about Michael and Judith before they start a relationship. It's nice, but kinda bland imo in terms of action and burgeoning romance.Timothy Zahn's An Act of War (2)I kinda missed the whole point of this story. Are we supposed to figure out h...
Storm from the Shadows (2009)

English

review 1: This was a terribly repetitive drag. Read as one dimensional characters in far flung areas of the Talbot Cluster are gradually informed of exciting things that happened in other books. Read on as they have meetings to exhaustively discuss those things. Then read on some more a...
Worlds of Weber: Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington and Other Stories (2008)

English

review 1: I read this after having read a few of the later stories of Honor Harrington. It reminded me of another story: "Mr. Midshipman Hornblower" so much that I smiled. C.S. Forrester is probably smiling from above at the notion that a David Weber created a young women character much ...

review 1: Kinda disappointing overall, but interesting to get some of the "side" story details from the main Honor Harrington series. Plenty of scenes with folks sitting around discussing plans for things that will happen, might happen, or just to chat. Not quite a "zillion" characters (an...

review 1: I am still enjoying the series, and I did enjoy this book, but it is starting to drag on. I've typically purchased Weber's books in hardback since I like him as an author, but I doubt I will continue to do this with this series. I picked this one up at the library, and I'm not...

review 1: "Midst Toil and Tribulation" of the Safehold series, book 6 is done! I loved it. It gets a little goofy at times as David Weber tries to lighten the mood because, after all, he's killing off thousands of people in each book so he needs to keep it light. :-)In this book, the Chari...

review 1: As part of the ongoing series, this is excellent. Be warned, though, that this would be the worst jumping-on point in literary history. Readers MUST have read the previous volumes in order for it to make any sense at all.In the context of the series, a whole bunch of plot threads...

review 1: When I first picked this book up I knew it was related to the Honor Harrington series by David Weber, but did not realise it was a prequel set hundreds of years before the others. That's okay, though. It just means I didn't have to worry about missing out on much since I haven'...

review 1: A series of short stories from the Honorverse.'Ruthless' gives us another view of Prince Michael and Judith, a follow on from 'Promised Land', and 20 or so years before we read Ruths story in Crown of Slaves. I enjoyed the story, and would like a few glimpses into their lives.A...

review 1: This book was so similar to the previous book in the series, I had a hard time telling them apart. Endless detail about troop movements, weapons development, and so many names! Not only are the names warped versions of current names, but characters are often identified by seve...

review 1: This series started off really well with an excellent premise for a series of books. But the author seems to think we need to know the biography and intimate detail of every character we meet (and there are far, far too many of them anyway). The plot is excellent and the only r...

review 1: #12 in the Honor Harrington series. Resuming after a five year hiatus, the series follow the fortunes of Honor Harrington after the decisive military victory against the Republic of Haven that ended At All Costs (2005). Two attacks by Solarian admirals against Manticore naval ele...

review 1: The worst installment of what so far has been a pleasant series. Truthfuly, the first book was the best and each succeeding book was a little less better. But none of them was this problematic. I found myself skimming whole chapters to get past some of the wordiness.- Too long...
