Not a very good book. I had trouble sitting through it. I find it hard to believe that Luke Skywalker would get severe depression and Han Solo would have confindence problems. Even if I could get over that, which I did not, the story line was just not that good.
I liked it and looking forward for the next audiobook
I didn't like some of the sound features like the space flight hum or other background sounds but other than that it is a great performance, one of the best I heard.
I asked a 15 year old who loves the Star Wars franchise what I should read to fet back into it. Really enjoyed it. Except for background noise I felt like I was in a Tunnel. Am downloading the next now.
Great production quality!
They were all very well done, but I liked Lando best for some reason.
I read the book when it first came out and was wondering if it would still hold its magic. It does. The production quality of this book is top notch. I wish this trilogy would be made into film!
Marc Thompson is fantastic especially intermixed with the Star Wars sound effects in the background. His accents and portrayals of the different main characters were great - I even like the fact that he kept Lando's pronunciation of Han's first name just like Billy Dee did it.
I had read this series when it first came out and it was great then and great now. Story-wise it is the direct sequel to the original Star Wars trilogy with the original cast of characters.
Han Solo. He got the tone just like Harrison Ford - almost as if Mr. Ford did it himself.
I read this when it came out, and was excited to see it made an audiobook. I waited until we got the unabridged version.
IMHO Jim Dale reading the Harry Potter series is the gold start by which all other aduiobook performances should be measured. Marc Thompson gives Mr.Dale a real run for his money. He is extremely skilled at it and makes the experience better. I cannot give him enough praise.
The story felt like you were watching the original episodes 4-5-6 again for the first time. With Hollywood moving to make "every" series a Bourne series (Why did James Bond loose his humor and just focus on being a BA) The Thrawn Anthology is a refreshing step back in time (yeh, a bad pun) when stories were a little more entertaining because of the story and not just the death count.
The different voices kept the 18 hour book interesting. Although, some of the voices did sound like a cliche.
Great book for a long road trip.
This edition had a number of sound effects to go along with the good reading that helped bring the story to life.
I found that this book filled in some of the gaps in the Hans Solo - Princess Leha saga.
Leha's escape from the ambush on Kashyyyk, while pregnant with the twins.
Marc Thompson just doesn't have a sufficient vocals range. His various voices are rather monotonous and repetitive. When you compare him to the vocals of other audio books performers, like Jim Dale or Gerard Doyle, he just doesn't stand up.
There are always moments that move me in the Star Wars books. I am a true fan of Lucian Philosophy/Theology and the books that communicate his creation.
Fathers Face Remembered
Any Star Wars books writing by Timothy Zahn.
Everything. His characterizations were great. I would put him up there with Jim Dale.
Episode 7 Heir to the Empire
This is a game changer in audio. It goes beyond just reading the book. It has a Star Wars soundtrack. It has sound effects. Just the little things like it sounding like your on the bridge when the book is on a space ship makes this incredible.
