%A David Weber
%T At All Costs

I have just finished reading the electronic Advance Readers Copy of At All Costs. It hasn't been edited yet, and there are a number of typos, and it is as long or longer than War of Honor.

It is MUCH more tightly written. There is very little in the way of infodump, and frankly I don't see where ANYTHING could be cut.

But it is also an extremely uncomfortable story to read. A necessary story, one that the Honorverse demands, but still uncomfortable and painful.

The current war hurts, there are too many decent people on both sides, and the stakes are far too high.

I do not regret ordering the advance webscription, I will order the hard cover and re read it at some leisure in November.

But I doubt that it will be one of the Honor novels I reread regularly.

If you cannot see the causal relationship between "I have chocolate" and "Life is Good", you simply aren't trying hard enough.

Before I give the impression that its all doom and gloom, good things do also happen. Things that are probably long over due.

The release of the ARC has spawned an insane number of comments in the Snerkers Only conference on Baens Bar, in particular [ROT13 due to potential spoiler effect] sebz gur "rjjj, Unzvfu" naq gur "Orgu vf Ahpxvat Shgf" oevtnqrf.

Latest news: my hardcover should be arriving at Slow Glass Books in a week or so and should include a new CD.

Yay!
