I like technology as well as books
Definitely, the way all the characters are introduced and all the conflicts are set in motion in this first book make you thirst for more and want to immediately get the next book.
Thrawn, because he is so smart and the way he sets everything up, like he can never fail. He's always a step ahead of everyone.
I love all of Marc Thompson's performances, from the voices to the emotion he puts into reading the book helps with immersion into the universe.
if you are a Star Wars (old school) fan, you should want to try this one.
very impressive performance, so many voices he can do and very consistent.
The narrator for this book was amazing, I really enjoyed listening to his re-telling of one of my favorite Star Wars novels.
Fun Fun Fun!!!
none that I've heard so far even come close.
He brings these beloved characters to life. Han and Luke are spot on!
Star Wars fans don't miss this unique listening experience.
The production qaulity was great. The characters sounded like they did in the Star Wars movies and the sound effects helped add to the experience.
Incredible full on production. This is so much more than just a narrator reading a book. The narrator is incredible about sounding like the original actors in the movie series. I have really enjoyed to sound effects for R2D2, Chewbacca, starfighter laser guns, etc. Really fun to listen too!
This story is great for the Star Wars fan who wants to follow Luke and friends into the future from episode VI (Return Of The Jedi). The performance was good with the exception of the wookie who speaks english. The sounds made during and after a sentence were like fingernails on a chalkboard. Most of human voices are really well done and similar to the way I remember hearing them in the movies.
A really good follow up to the movies. Princess Laya is a little softer than I remember. Lots of new people in this series that would be fun to follow. Great story line, and the delivery is amazing.
So did not read the novels between the movies and this series. And apparently there was a lot going on. Laya organa solo is carrying twins! Are you kidding me how did I miss that?
I have never heard of Mark Thompson before but I am really impressed with the amount of characters he can keep up with.
The first part of the Thorn Series makes you think the Empire just got its second wind and is over the Death Star money pit.
Lots of new characters but the good ones are still in this one. Mark has a great Solo voice too.
I've been a big Star Wars fan since episode 4 came out in the 1977. With the exciting news about Disney's purchase of Lucas, I decided to try Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition): The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 1. I was sadly disappointed. What a rip off. Overly simplistic, poorly developed, and sophomoric, Zahn should stick to writing comic books. I would give the book zero stars if that were possible.
There's something good about listening to an audio book where you see the voices you hear as they're familiar figures from the silver screen. Full of Star Wars action and adventure. The ending was a bit unsatisfying, but I supposed that's what you get when you listen to a trilogy. A must for Star Wars fans as it answers the question, "what happens after the movie is over".
