Honor Among Enemies: Honor Harrington, Book 6 | [David Weber]

Honor Among Enemies: Honor Harrington, Book 6

Despite political foes, professional jealousies, and the scandal which drove her into exile, Capt. Honor Harrington has been offered a chance to reclaim her career as an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy. But there's a catch. She must assume command of a "squadron" of jury-rigged armed merchantmen with crew drawn from the dregs of her service and somehow stop the pirates who have taken advantage of the Havenite War to plunder the Star Kingdom's commerce.

A Note from Author David Weber
There's been some confusion—not to say, um, energetic debate, readers and fans being readers and fans—about the correct pronunciation of "Manticoran." The truth, alas, is that a stitch was dropped. An error occurred. A mistake was made… and it wasn't Audible's fault. It was mine. Before Audible recorded the very first Honor Harrington book, narrator Allyson Johnson and I not only corresponded by e-mail but actually spoke to one another by phone. She wanted to make absolutely certain she had the correct pronunciations for names, places, star nations, etc., and I tried to make certain all of her questions were answered. And so they were. Unfortunately, at some point in the process, I replied to one of her e-mails by telling her that "Man-ti-core-ahn" was pronounced "Man-tik-er-ahn." Exactly how this happened is more than I can say at this point, except to blushingly disclose that the original e-mail remains intact, confirming to all the world that it was, indeed, my fault. I can ascribe it only to a temporary mental hiccup on my part and crave your forgiveness. If, however, you must blame someone for the mix-up, that someone should be me and not Audible, who have done everything they could to get it right.

    "One of my Favorites"

    While I like all the books in the series, this one is probably my favorite.
    Wanderman's story is easy to relate to.

    "can't take it anymore"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Honor Among Enemies to be better than the print version?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I have tried to adjust my ear to the chosen pronunciations of the reader but even after listening to 5 of the books I'm being pulled out of the story every time the home star nation of HH is mentioned to find my self screaming in frustration. Can't do it anymore. Love the books, just can't listen to them anymore.

    "Yes We need an order list"

    I'm sorry to say that I keep trying to get used to the reader and , through all the books, I still have NOT. I'm ready to give up on the series because of the irritating narrator.

    I agree that Audible should make an effort at a sequence order list.

    "Bad Narrator Ruins Good Story"

    I've read most of David Weber's Honor Harrington series so I thought I'd give the audio version a chance. Sadly, a terrible reader ruined what is otherwise a really good science fictions story. In most cases the narrator talks in a monotone with little differentiation between the various characters' voices. When not talking in monotone, the narrator spoke in an up and down cadence that becomes so annoying I couldn't finishing listening.

    "Dependable Harrington fare"
    Where does Honor Among Enemies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Above average.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third book that ends with Harrington winning the day in personal combat. The plot device is a bit old by now.
