    The rulers of the People's Republic of Haven are in trouble and revolt is brewing, so it's high time for a short victorious war. But Honor Harrington is going to give them a war that's neither short nor victorious.

    Would you listen to The Short Victorious War again? Why?

    possibly, in a few years


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Honor Harrington - of course


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes - but that was the way I read the print book.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader's pronunciation was so different on many words than the way I read them in the book that it continually pulled me away from the story to try to figure out what she was saying. It has now (after the previous two books) gotten so I can almost ignore my irritation, but not completely. Every time she says man-TIC-o-ran it drives me up a wall. I hope I can begin to not hear it in the later books for I'll probably listen to at least the first ten books in the series.

    Despite political foes, professional jealousies, and the scandal which drove her into exile, Capt. Honor Harrington has been offered a chance to reclaim her career as an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy. But there's a catch. She must assume command of a "squadron" of jury-rigged armed merchantmen with crew drawn from the dregs of her service and somehow stop the pirates who have taken advantage of the Havenite War to plunder the Star Kingdom's commerce.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Honor Among Enemies to be better than the print version?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I have tried to adjust my ear to the chosen pronunciations of the reader but even after listening to 5 of the books I'm being pulled out of the story every time the home star nation of HH is mentioned to find my self screaming in frustration. Can't do it anymore. Love the books, just can't listen to them anymore.

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Floor to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I think I would have skipped those parts that I found tedious to listen - which would have made the reading experience more enjoyable


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    The small town Chief of Detectives


    Any additional comments?

    Not bad - good voice acting, good story though dated, interesting characters. But I found there to be many descriptive passages that, if reading, would have skipped, but listening I found tedious and repetitive.
