So I’ve listened to the first two books in David Weber’s Honor Harrington series, On Basilisk Station & The Honor of the Queen. I’m enjoying the series immensely! I will be starting book #3 soon.
There is a some wit, some tears and some bloody space battles!! Think female Horatio Hornblower in space! (If you don’t know who Horatio Hornblower is…I’m sad and you need to read more!)
A fair warning to those who dislike profanity or listen to audiobooks in the car with your kids. There are a few 4 letter words, especially in some of the battle scenes closer to the end of each book. There is a point in each book where the “F” word makes an appearance.
If you enjoy tech detailed sci-fi this is a great series I think!! AND you can currently get the ebook together with the audible narration for about $2 for these first two books via Amazon.com! Go to the regular Amazon website, the Kindle version of the books are free and you can “add narration” for $1.99 each. If you go through the Audible webside you will have to use a credit or pay around $20 each for them!
