    1. I think I did – 1 at least – but it would have been the better part of 30 years ago so I’m not sure. Back then I was mainly reading Arthur C Clarke and Isaac Asimov.

    2. I’ve read most of the Honor Harrington series to date. If you like lots of technical military, astrography, and political detail, with a dash of C.S. Forrester’s ‘Horatio Hornblower’ type heroism, then you’ll probably like this series. Generally, the books are a fairly easy read, but you’ll hit sections where they get pretty “hard” – lots and lots of detail about the hardware, or calculations on intercept times and course plotting. The later books also have some sections of fairly heavy political analysis. I’ve found them enjoyable, but occasionally a bit slow moving.

      If you’re looking for a long read, this is also a very good series to pick up. At this time of writing, 28 books, not counting the companion guide. There are 14 books in the main series, and the rest are books of short stories, or side series stories exploring other parts of the universe with other authors. The side stories are generally plotted by Weber, and require his okay before going into print, so they are all canonical, and allow looks at other parts of a big universe.
