  • "Beyond the film..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I'm sure you know the story by heart if you are looking at this. What separates this collection of NPR radio dramas? The production is fantastic, even if only a couple of the actors are the 'real' ones in the film. The depth this adds to the familiar story is what makes this stand out. The first two episodes of the thirteen take place before the film opens. A lot of extra dialog and description too. Not only does Han shoot first, he is a very dark character only redeemed by his heroics at the end.

    My only other comment is that I would rate it PG. The film has a few curse words, and this production adds a few. There are also sections that are fairly dark, such as Vader's interrogation of Leia. If you have a younger Star Wars fan I don't think I'd recommend this one.

    This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.

Anthony's greatest hits:
  • Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Vector Prime

    "A good book ruined by bad narration."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What would have made Star Wars better?

    I've read this book in paperback before, and rather enjoyed the story. There is certainly nothing wrong with the book itself, as I was excited to listen to it this time to relive the memories. But the narrator, Anthony Heald, has a terrible performance in this book, not putting any effort into the characters' voices and making terrible sounds with his mouth, as well as reading at a very awkward pace. Not having him try and match the characters' voices in the films was okay, but the pace of reading in this book was so clumsy that I couldn't wait to get through it, so I could find a book with a better narrator. The timing in several of the sentences he reads totally changes the mood and feel of the story, and ruins some of the most emotional parts in Star Wars novel history. Save your money or credits, this narrator ruins a great story.


    What didn’t you like about Anthony Heald’s performance?

    Pace of reading was too fast many times, and too slow in all the wrong parts. Reader didn't bother to even try mimicking character voices. Reader smacks mouth in annoying and awkward clicking sounds.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars?

    I would have cut Anthony Heald and given the part to Marc Thompson.


    Any additional comments?

    These older books would be nice to have redone with the quality of later books narrated by Marc Thompson. I listened to those in a matter of weeks, and would gladly listen to more if they were as well performed by those later Random House Audio presentations.

  • Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance

    "An okay story brought to new life by Marc Thompson"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance the most enjoyable?

    Definitely the performance of Marc Thompson. Though the story was fairly interesting, it lacked the quality that many of the other more experienced writers of Star Wars novels bring to the table. The characters lacked some depth, and the fact that we won't see these characters in future books made them lack much development. But Marc Thompson's performance truly adds a new life to the book, making you feel for the characters on a deeper level than simply reading and adding more realism to the story.


    Would you recommend Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance to your friends? Why or why not?

    For the audiobook, sure. But I would recommend other books before this one, unless you, like myself, have been flying through all of the Star Wars audiobooks like a madman. For the book itself, no. But if you like listening, and just can't get enough of Star Wars adventures, this will do nicely


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to most of Marc Thompson's Star Wars novels now, and this does not disappoint. This must have been more difficult, however, for at the time of production he had no reference to the voices of the characters. Even still, his voice acting is incredible, and he distinctly and definitely brings to life all the characters he portrays. Excellent work as always, Marc Thompson.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not particularly. There were a few parts that moved me some I suppose, but most times it could have been built up better, or left more mysterious. Not that this book will make you feel nothing, but there's no big surprises like you have in novels by Timothy Zahn.

  • "The Wraiths Are Back"

    8 of 8 helpful votes

    Wraith Squadron is back in "Mercy Kill", with an adventure that takes place after the events in "Fate of the Jedi".

    I have met Aaron Allston a couple of times, and once interviewed him for my Star Wars fan club. He's a great guy, and is one of the best writers for SW books out there, because he can combine action, intrigue, humor, and sheer innovation together into a great story. This book is reminiscent of those that have cemented him as one of the most prolific SW authors.

    First off, the narration is excellent, and a special treat for Star Wars audiobooks are the music, ambient and special effects that are weaved throughout the story. You don't get that in most books, and it really helps you feel "in" the Star Wars universe.

    As far as the storyline goes, the point of view mostly follows Voort "Piggy" saBinring, an old Wraith Squadron vet, who is recruited back into the action by Garik "Face" Loran. This is an interesting character to feature, I thought. The book also gives us some backstory on what the Wraiths have been up to in the intervening years, and also gives closure on the stories of some of its members that had been left hanging. This also gives us a more emotionally impactful story, as well.

    We also are introduced to a new generation of Wraiths in this book. Also, this particular storyline is scaled back from the galaxy-spanning conflicts of "Fate of the Jedi" and others - which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It enables us to focus more deeply on the new characters.

    A couple of drawbacks - I don't think the new characters mesh quite as well as the old classics. Maybe I'm just nostalgic, though. Also, there isn't much actual starfighter action in the book - its more of Wraith's style of clandestine operations. I think calling the book "X-Wing" in the title generally makes you expect space battles. Finally, the more limited scope of the story didn't quite meet all my expectations - but all these things are subjective and I'll leave it up to you to decide for yourself.

    If you liked the other books in the "X-Wing" series, then you should get this one. You'll get more of the characters you love, and you'll get to find out where the story - and the characters - go from here.

    Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand - for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission. A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire.

That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sith - until his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order...and create it anew from the ashes.

    Twenty years have passed since Darth Bane, reigning Dark Lord of the Sith, demolished the ancient order devoted to the dark side and reinvented it as a circle of two: one Master to wield the power and pass on the wisdom, and one apprentice to learn, challenge, and ultimately usurp the Dark Lord in a duel to the death. But Bane’s acolyte, Zannah, has yet to engage her Master in mortal combat and prove herself a worthy successor. Determined that the Sith dream of galactic domination will not die with him, Bane vows to learn the secret of a forgotten Dark Lord that will assure the Sith’s immortality - and his own.

    The tale of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and the fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker has become modern myth, an epic tragedy of the corruption of a young man in love into darkness, the rise of evil, and the power of good triumphing in the end. But it didn't start out that way. In this thorough account of one of cinema's most lasting works, Michael Kaminski presents the true history of how Star Wars was written, from its beginnings as a science fiction fairy tale to its development over three decades into the epic we now know, chronicling the methods, techniques, thought processes, and struggles of its creator.

    Hot on the heels of the New York Times bestseller William Shakespeare's Star Wars comes the next two installments of the original trilogy: William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back and William Shakespeare's The Jed Doth Return. Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter. These two plays offer essential listening for all ages.

    When the Empire threatens the galaxy’s new hope, will Han, Luke, and Leia become its last chance? When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo - something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

    But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she’s determined to stay behind enemy lines.

    It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.

    The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn.

    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.
