    Would you listen to Daring again? Why?

    I will be listening to the kris Longknife series every couple of years. I do the same for Asimov's Robot (R. Daneel) Series and a select number of others.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and I have, several times.The Honor Harrington series is one of the best I've ever read. I read / listen to Asimov's Robot Series, at least once a year; however, I found myself reading Weber's Honor Harrington Series for third time in less than two years.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Basilisk Station?

    When Honor saved the Protector and his family.


    What about Allyson Johnson’s performance did you like?

    Everything. Ms. Johnson's performance was perfect. I must say, I personally think "Man-tik-eran" is the proper pronunciation (Sorry, Mr. Weber) 😜


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

    Absolutely, they all are.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Weber, thank you for a wonderful book. (Honor Harrington "The Book", in 14 Chapters)

    Story
    (3839)

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    What did you love best about The Lost Fleet: Dauntless?

    The storyline of Blackjack Geary is great. Mr.Campbell weaves action, drama, humor and intrigue into a wonderful 'episode.'. There lies the problem; each book in the storyline left me hanging. Cliffhangers are bad enough, when the next installment is in another book ($ or credit); but, it really hurts, when it hasn't been released yet.Don't get me wrong, I've bought every chapter / book (All six, so far) and will probably continue to do so. Good news for the author and publisher; but, new readers should be prepared for this.Enjoy the story!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Fleet: Dauntless?

    The 'non' ending of the book. (I did say it was a great chapter).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard to say.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, several times at irony of some reactions to "Blackjack's" methods.
