Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Beautiful Friendship (Honor Harrington - Star Kingdom Book 1) (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
A Beutiful Friendship was my first (well, second after "By The Book") venture into the Honorverse (following the chronological order of stories as suggested by venerable Wikipedia at [...]) and I wasn't disappointed. While I realize that some readers may find the yarn spun in this novella about Honor Harrington's first encounter with the sentient species of her homeworld, Sphinx, and her subsequent ascent to her first kind of official enlistment in public service somewhat mushy, I found it tremendously captivating to read even if the author strummed those emotional strings rather heftily here and there - and I fell for it fully, big sentimental oaf that I am. :) It's probably not a very _adult_ book, coming to think about it, but one I shall enjoy tremendously to read to my own kids one day, to ignite the love for faraway worlds and alien species in them. For that, it has my glowing recommendation. If there is still an adressable kid in you, susceptible for wonderment and awe, treat that child in you to this entry into the world of Honor Harrington, when she was still known as ornery young Stephanie and about to embark on her first of many adventures.
