David Weber's Honor Harrington series

Thanks to this forum, I've gotten tons of book suggestions (mostly sci-fi and fantasy, which is just fine for the moment)--and one I was intrigued by was the Honor Harrington series.

I've read the first two books in the series, and am slightly mixed. I absolutely love the character Honor. I think Weber's done an excellent job creating an absolutely likable character--one who the reader always has to root for. But I can't help but feel like he's created this amazing character, then made the books so action oriented that he shunts her aside.

I guess right now I'm craving a bit more personal attention--maybe more about Honor's friendships or relationships, and a bit more about what she's thinking and feeling.

Does this change/get added to as the series progresses?

For the most part, I like the series so far, I just keep coming away disappointed, and wishing there was a little bit more about the character, and less about the action.

Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!

Connie
