A definitive NO!
it made me wince in agony at the horrible reading and terrible impressions, the reader frequently miss-pronounced locations such as Corascant, Yavin and names like Mara Jade and more. Not to mention the style and flare which he uses to try and impersonate Han Solo is gaudy and horrible and nothing at all like that of the movies, it is obvious the reader has never even watched a single one of the Movies. and the impersonation of admiral Ackbar is absolutely HORRIBLE. whiny and high pitch is exactly opposite of the movies.
its sad to hear such a horrible reading of such a great book. and i hope they go through with a second recording with a better reader.
Having never read the full length book, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the abridged version, I didn't feel like I had really missed anything. Biggest negative though is Anthony Heald's frequent mispronunciation of names and places.
Narrator needs to learn what commas are for! He read way to fast and ran sentences together. His attempts to do voices was very poor and the whole thing felt like he was rushing to get through! Also most of the names were not pernounced correctly.
Story was good just performance and Narrator was horrable also I like to read along with a book but thus is an abridged version so a lot of stuff was missing. All in all very disappointed .
Was never much of a reader before due to the fact i had to actually read. Now i'm discovering unexpected adventures with time to do other th
starts to explain the finsing and training of the new jedi order. looking forward to hewring the rest of the story
First the story line was great the problem I had was with the narrator he was unable to bring the story to life and because of that it didn't grasp my attention only during the action.
