Weber quartet

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Recently I’ve gotten back into the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. Today I visited the bookstore, and surprise surprise, it had some David Weber novels on discount and the paperback version of the latest Honor Harrington novels that I didn’t have yet. In fact, they were the first two novels of the Safehold series, Off Armageddon Reef (2007) and By Schism Rent Asunder (2008), which was quite convenient as I already had books 3 and 5 of the series, and the other two were Mission Of Honor (2010) and A Rising Thunder (2012). So I had a nice foursome of two pairs and a small recovery of my read pile which I have been hitting the last few months. However, one cannot read too much of one author so I do plan to put in a break, because, in all honesty, Weber is not that a versatile writer and his prose does get repetitive. His novels are well structured and do not contain flaws so you only obtain a dislike if you read several novels in a row. That said, I should not change into reviewing mode here.
