    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.

    What about Allyson Johnson’s performance did you like?

    The performance was fine, different voices, well paced...


    Any additional comments?

    I never actually finished this story, as about half way through my third attempt (on a third day) to listen to it I just gave up. It was too simple and too boring. I kept finding my thoughts wandering away from the story into other things and had to keep repeating even to get where I was. And I can hardly remember it, it was so trite.

    I bought this because other reviews were so glowing that it sounded like a story that I couldn't lose on. Sadly, I actually bought the first four in the series. Thank goodness audible is good about returns! Now I can use that money for better books.

  • The Brothers Ashkenazi

    Story
    (53)

    In the Polish city of Lodz, the Brothers Ashkenazi grew up very differently in talent and in temperament. Max, the firstborn, is fiercely intelligent and conniving, determined to succeed financially by any means necessary. Slower-witted Jacob is strong, handsome, and charming but without great purpose in life. While Max is driven by ambition and greed to be more successful than his brother, Jacob is drawn to easy living and decadence.

    it was an interesting view on the times and culture. The reader's mispronouncing Jewish holidays & some Yiddish words bothered me, though.
