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.
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.
even though this is abridged, it could have been a bit longer. the last chapter is full of action but felt rushed. overall, not bad. the biggest fail is the narrator's mispronunciation of established names, but sometimes it was funny.
The narrator reads WAY to fast, also mispronouncing names.
Not enjoyable to listen to. Actually made me not want to listen to the series.
He rushed everything, and the voice "acting" is god awful. This guy couldn't even capture the most basics qualities of the characters. Not to mention all the miss pronouncing of the names and places in the star wars universe. This guy should be banned from ever coming near anything star wars.
Unabridged is the way to go. I want to listen to the whole book, not just bits and pieces.
Nope, this combo is bad bad bad. This guy gives luke a british accent ! He sounds like a dam imperial ! I don't think this guy has ever seen a single star wars movie.
Simple storyline and fairly weak characters; this book suffers from over-abridgment and odd pronunciations take you out of the story.
Still feels like Star Wars though and taken with the rest of the trilogy; it forms a reasonably good book.
