Hi guys: A few on this forum recommended that I try some David Weber. I've just read On Basilisk Station, and it's been a mixed experience. ** I enjoyed the character development, and in particular the evolving relationship between Honor and her exec. The book hit a character-based peak around the middle. ** I found the physics (hyperspace, impeller drives, etc.) very hard to follow, and I expect I would have done even if I'd been a physicist! Unlike other authors, such as Alastair Reynolds, Weber utterly fails to explain science in an understandable way using everyday images. And do we need such lengthly info-dump? ** The battle sequences were too long for me. Superficial description. I prefer to capture some drama in brief then get onto emotional ramifications. Now, what does the future hold? Are there jewels awaiting if I journey forth in the honorverse? Or should I pack it in now because the Mistborne trilogy is beckoning from my bookshelf and I was planning to re-read Enders Game and Gemmell's Rigante series...? Coragem.
