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!
Retribution for stealing clients was swift and just... you'll know that scene when you hear it
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!
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
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.
Great voices for the characters, her wonderful clear diction, perfectly performed accents, and an altogether terrific reading style.
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!!!
David Weber's Honor Harrington universe is always a joy to visit.
