David Weber's "Honor Harrington' series has been a delight to read...however he's begun dividing and interweaving his timelines thru several Novels and seems reluctant to get on with it!
A Rising Thunder is the perfect example,while it is a lot of fun to read and almost stands alone it really dosn't move the 'Honor" timeline much,and it seem to be the first half of a book ...Or the third part of a separate timeline...

The series begins > On Basilisk Station

Format: Hardcover
"A Rising Thunder" reads like the unfinished prelude to the grand finale of the "Honor Harrington" saga; not surprisingly, it is the first half of a manuscript Weber has written already chronicling the war between the Solarian League and the Star Empire of Manticore and its allies. While this isn't by far the best in the "Honor Harrington" series, it is not the worst, and is commendable to the extent in which Weber describes Harrington, Queen Elizabeth Winton of Manticore and President Eloise Pritchart of Haven in almost realistic, three-dimensional terms; however, too often, the plot revolves around secondary characters far less compelling than these key protagonists and their closest friends and allies. One major objection I have with Weber's ongoing plotting is in demonstrating how quickly Manticore and Haven transform themselves from deadly enemies to stalwart allies in the face of Solarian League military aggression. Devoted fans of Weber's "Honorverse" will find much worth noting in "A Rising Thunder"; however, those who are seeking the space-opera science fictional equivalent of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series will be disappointed unless they are familiar already with Weber's "Honorverse" novels.

This book was like most of the Harrington series. I am waiting for the next book. It's a nice product.

Really Mr. WEBER, can you make the Solarians any stupider? Maybe just get on with dealing with your main villains and the evolution of the league.

Honor chuckles a lot, talks even more and does very little. I still like the series, but I wish it would start moving again. The problem is, that Harrington has become too high ranking. Her story arc should be closed with an "...and they lived happily ever after" and the saga turned over to the numerous other engaging characters and a few new writers. David does not have the time or seemingly the inclination to continue and it might be an idea to just treat it as a franchise.
By the way, am I the only one who finds the cats annoying?
