    The space-faring Yherajk have come to Earth to meet us and to begin humanity's first interstellar friendship. There's just one problem: They're hideously ugly and they smell like rotting fish. So getting humanity's trust is a challenge. The Yherajk need someone who can help them close the deal. Enter Thomas Stein, who knows something about closing deals. He's one of Hollywood's hottest young agents.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Agent to the Stars to be better than the print version?

    While I love the feel of a book in my hands, listening to books requires me to hear every word the author intended. Scanning the page visually I read right past subtle shades of meaning and description the author included.

    I LOVE the extra enjoyment listening to an audio edition gives me!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Retribution for stealing clients was swift and just... you'll know that scene when you hear it


    Any additional comments?

    The picture of the anti-hero lead as living in the Hollywierd world of multiple layers of meaning to every word, gesture, and action gave a flavor to the story that couldn't have come from any other place on earth!

    There are two sides to any quarrel... unless there are more. Queen Elizabeth of Manticore's first cousin and Honor Harrington's best friend Michelle Henke has just handed the "invincible" Solarian League Navy the most humiliating, one-sided defeat in its entire almost thousand-year history in defense of the people of the Star Empire's Talbott Quadrant. But the League is the most powerful star nation in the history of humanity. Its navy is going to be back – and this time with thousands of superdreadnoughts.

    Story
    Would you listen to Shadow of Freedom again? Why?

    Love the story line, it's a continuation of events occurring during Dutchess Harrington's reaching out to the Havenites. Other Manticorian officers taking the initiative, making things happen, and living up to the finest traditions of the Manticor Navy


    What did you like best about this story?

    Weber's pulling together the action by giving us a look at each subplot was very well done. The complexities of an undeclared war, a 600+ year old plot against humanity, and the human interests given us by seeing/hearing what the characters were thinking.


    What about Allyson Johnson’s performance did you like?

    Great voices for the characters, her wonderful clear diction, perfectly performed accents, and an altogether terrific reading style.


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

    I'd have loved to listen to it all at once... scheduling and the occasional need for sleep interfered horrible... OTOH, I got to enjoy some of the scenes a couple of times as I found my place and restarted!!!


    Any additional comments?

    David Weber's Honor Harrington universe is always a joy to visit.
