This is a great series and David Weber is a very good author with rich detail and great story telling. Unfortunately, this abridged version is so cut up it is not worth the time. At the end, at least they admit it has been "extensively abridged".
Wait for Audible to come out with an unabridged version or get the book. I now have to get the book to fill in the holes I know are there.

I adore the Honor Harrington series. I didn't notice this rendition was abridged when I got it and I am so disappointed. I feel like I missed most of the story and just got spoilers! Thus the two star rating.
This book is less action oriented than previous books, but I still feel I would have enjoyed it greatly in its original entire form and could have awarded it three or four stars for sure.
Barbara Rosenblat who reads the story is absolutely terrific and I look forward to hearing more of her clear diction and excellent character renditions and accents. She deserves five stars, but they only give me one place to rate the book overall.

I've loved all af the Honor Harrington books I've read before this. Unfortunately I was quite dissapointed by this one. The narration and production quality were excellent.
However. When I finally got to the end and heard in the END credits that it was an abridgement I'd been listening to I realised why I wasn't satisfied with this book.
I'll be going back and reading the full-length dead-tree version to get the real story and put this cut-down version behind me.
In the future I'm afraid I'll have to assume titles are Abridged unless stated otherwise. If only the assumption could be made the otherway round: 'Unabridged, unless otherwise stated'.
