I really enjoyed the story. The performance was also top notch. My only concern was with some of the ambient sounds used to simulate space travel. One part in particular really annoyed me, that being when Luke was stuck in space with his X-Wing -- the hum of the engine was agonizing to listen to in the background. Tried adjusting the EQ on my device to no avail. Aside from that, I loved it.
Also, I wish the other books in the series had a square cover to match this one. Books 2 and 3 of this series don't share the same Audible standard square artwork which bothers me (OCD after all).
I read this book maybe a decade ago and hearing it now wonderfully performed my Mr. Thompson and well produced brings back excellent memories and has made me want to read the entire series again.
loved it, easily the best audio book I've listened to. I could not stop listening, I felt as though I was watching a film rather than listening to a book, excellent.
Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the story now as much as I did 20 years ago. However the performance, or shall I say the effects used in the performance, left much to be desired. Mr Thompson wasn't the problem. The over use of effects and sound editing interrupted and distracted me from the story more than added to it.
I had high expectations for the thrawn series as in hadn't read it yet, and the content met those expectations.
The performance was above and beyond what I expected. The reader's voices were varied enough to easily discern different characters and he gave each of them a memorable voice so it was easy to remember who was talking.
The effects provided in the background gave a great atmosphere and context to each scene.
