This universe is brought to vivid life by narrators Victor Bevine, Khristine Hvam, and L.J. Ganser.
Please note: This audiobook contains 3 short stories and an appendix:
"A Beautiful Friendship"
"A Grand Tour"
"A Whiff of Grapeshot"
"The Universe of Honor Harrington"
I must admit I am hooked on the Honor Harrington series. The Honor-universe series gives us more insight into the times and history than could be provided in the original series. This book is a collection of three short stories. The first is about young Stephanie Harrington and the first encounter with the tree cats. This is also covered in the youth series about Stephanie, which adults will also enjoy. The second covers archeology about early space travel to Manticore. The third book covers the history of the engineering developments of space travel and the discoveries that allow for hyperspace travel. You really must enjoy science and technical information for this story. It also covers the Winton family and it's rise to power of the Manticore system. The three narrators, Victor Bevine, L. J. Ganser and Khristine Hvam did a good job reading the stories. Looking forward to more in this series.

Confession: I'm an Honorverse fan. If you'r reading this, chances are you are too. This is not the first book I would recommend to someone I'm trying to introduce to the Honorverse. It is however a GREAT companion to the first several Honor books. We hear the back story to Honor's distant relative who settled on Sphinx. We also get a primer on the physics and math behind the methods of travel used in the books. In short, if you're already a fan of Honorverse books - this is a great book that will fill in many of the holes in the back story. The performance, is as good as the writing, but in spots can drag.

If you are reading this, then you are completely hooked on Honor Harrington Universe.
This book is a first collection of short stories and should be listened after "In Enemy Hands".
This audiobook contains 3 short stories and an appendix:
______________________"A Beautiful Friendship"_________________________
This is a story of the first treecat adoption.
Do you remember Honor's story about "missing celery"?
Later this short story was turned into spin off series for teenage readers: Star Kingdom series
It was very interesting.
__________________________"A Grand Tour"____________________________
This is completely of the board short story involving some naval action some interesting native artefacts, left by prehuman spacefareres.
It was written by David Drake, so it has the same feeling as RCN Book Series about
Daniel Leary the lieutenant in the Republic of Cinnabar Navy
( actually it's pretty interesting series too, if you like this short story you should check the series, but keep in mind that I rated this short short story only 3* but the series has solid 4*)
_________________________"A Whiff of Grapeshot"________________________
A Story by S.M.Stirling. The events take place during one of the coup d'etat attempts.
in my opinion this story is a waste of your time.
_____________________"The Universe of Honor Harrington"___________________
Well, If you haven't learned anything about main planets, legal systems,history of space exploration, economics of the main players, then do not despair.
This is your chance to confirm everything you think you already know about Honor Harrington Universe.

2 of these togethwr may be an enjoyable audio book. its a waste of a credit for 3 short stories and an appendix
While some of the stories or info presented here is new, much of it comes from other sources as well. Having said that it is a nice anthology and is read well.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Let us know that the whole first half of the book was part of another book in another series, and that the rest was random shorts stories that have nothing to do with the Honor character. I feel like I got ripped off and wish I could get my credit back.
Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?
I would listen to the author again, I just feel slighted by this release, I feel like they are using his name to advance the careers of the other writers on my dime.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
the narrator was good
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger when I kept having flash backs to a book I just paid for in the tree cat series.
Any additional comments?
REFUND PLEASE AND TAKE THAT SLOP OUT OF THE READING LIST.
Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?
I'm thinking not if the reader is the same as the last story on this set of discs.
Has More Than Honor turned you off from other books in this genre?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I really liked the first story about the 11 year old girl and the "tree cat", I really wanted to hear more.
Was More Than Honor worth the listening time?
Up to the last story which I just fast forwarded through to find something interesting, the reader didn't help there either. He has a very irritating voice.
Any additional comments?
I'm going to try books 2 and 3 since I have already purchased them and I sure hope it gets better.
Not new stories! Literally copied from othe honorverse books. I feel very cheated! I may never buy honor again. Mad!
