I enjoy this whole series. All are available from Baen Books as e books for less than $6 each and some are on their free e library. Most of the books on my nook are from Baen.

I love this series and reread the books all the time. Strong characters whose story lines I can't wait to continue in new books when they come out. David Weber builds a great world. I can just picture the action and scenes easily from his description. On Basilisk Station is a great start to Honor's world.

I was quite impressed with this book. It did remind me of Phule's Company by Robert Aspirin in many ways, but without the humor. I like the 'universe' Weber built his story around. But, the long descriptions of some of the more psuedo-technical aspects kind of turned me off (a little too much like trying to describe dilithium crystals or Jefferies Tubes for my liking). The interactions of the crew struck me as honest portrayals of how people in a hierarchical organization relate to one another. I really liked it. The eBook was formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammatical errors. There was the matter of no distinct separation between scenes within a chapter, but I think this might have to due with me converting to epub off of the Baen promotional CD files.

I really enjoyed this book because of it's take on the whole historical context of British naval terms from the early 19th century. Alas, that era is now over. But this book depicts what might happen if we were to carry on the ideals and type of speech of those people. It also paints a political scheme very well (if you can keep up with the numerous names of the societies and their characters!). I give it four stars.

The Honor Harrington series is space opera at its best with brave, loyal characters, incredible spaceships, and detailed space battles. Honor Harrington is Manticoran Navy to the core. The Manticoran system has three habitable planets - Manticore, Gryphon, and Sphinx. While the system is governed by a Queen and has a hereditary aristocracy, Honor is from yeoman stalk. She is a native of Sphinx and her parents are doctors. She doesn't have the patronage that many of her fellow Navy officers have. Fortunately, she is both more competent and luckier than most other officers.

This book has been hanging around in my library for a while staring at me just screaming at me to read it. Now that I have I wonder what took me so long! Well written with superb characters the story had enough real physics weaved into it to make it not only believable but flat out exciting. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves sci fact/fiction. For myself im looking forward to the next in line!!!

From the beginning the plot and the pace of "On Basilisk Station" was set and the story picks up and never stopped holding my interest. Honor Harrington is assigned to a large space command. Basilisk Station is the end of the line in the Navy - only those that have brought discredit to the Navy are sent there. But in Harrington's mind, all she believes is that she is being punished for doing her best in a very difficult situation. I was expecting a so-so read, not a great book, but was I pleasantly surprised, for this novel was fabulous - I couldn't put it down. If you enjoy military Sci-Fi I would recommend this book. So Long.
