Not copied and pasted from previous books.
It's a "Honor Harrington novel" - it says so right on the cover picture, trouble is, she's not in it as an active character and is just mentioned in passing once or twice....I gave it an overall rating of two stars because it held enough of my attention to actually finish it.
This felt as if the author had to write a minimum of x words, so she threw in a bunch of not very related scenes to pad it out. The whole thing fell very flat for me, especially after the first two excellent books.
Anything by Michelle Sagara/West - you don't need a computer to run a concordance to recognize the word use or style:-)
In my copy (the enhanced version) about 32 minutes from the end she stops halfway through a sentence and says something that sound suspiciously like f*ck and then restarts the sentence - I doubt that's in the printed copy of the book!
One more file editing error - the enhanced version comes as a single file, yet halfway or perhaps 2/3 through the file there's the tag the comes at the end of an intermediate part ("You've reached the end of a part, but not the end of the book.....") Someone was asleep at the editing desk...
Can't choose - it was all good
It's a great story though there are occasional failures of internal logical consistency which I wont boor you with since this is a fantasy after all!
The audio editing leaves something to be desired (at least on my iPod), with occasional gaps - it sounds as if an error was made in the middle of a sentence, the error removed and then a correction spliced in with too much silence at the beginning. It's not a huge problem but it niggles. Occasionally, the pronunciation is a bit off, cataclysmic and [Hieronymus] Bosch come to mind.
