Heir To The Empire grabs you from the beginning with one of the best introductions of a villain in any story. Admiral Thrawn is painted so vividly in such a brief amount of time, an incredible feat that not many can achieve. The first chapter makes us terrified for our favorite team of Star Wars characters and keeps us listening all the way through the book. Marc Thompson is the best narrator I've ever heard. His vast collection of voices and impressions transport you to a galaxy far, far, away...
yes. It is very well done, the background music and sound ad a great feel to the story
luke very well done and portrayed the part well
I hope the other 2 books in the Thraun Trilogy are going to be like this. You can't get the other two unabridged.... I would wait until it happens! Marc Thompson was amazing (legin.....wait for it.........dary).
YES! Marc is an amazing Narrator! Zahn is a masterful writer!
Book two! LOL,...when is it coming out?
Luke meeting Mara was pretty historic.
When is book two coming out LOL!
Sci-Fi fan extraordinaire! Not Fantasy; just Sci-Fi.
I listen to books on the road to help me sleep. Well this kept me up! I liked the abridged since I had read the books. This performance of the full story was outstanding. Pleas do the next two.
The whole interaction with Thrawn, Paeileon and Karrde played well.
Excellent as always
Just when you thought it was over.
Voices were great. Story was fun, exciting.
ysalamiri blocking the force
All had the right characterizations.
Where are the rest on audible!
When mara jade revelas her past. Of course that is my favorite part anyway. Hearing thrawn talk about knowing a planets 'art'
I love the music and sound effects. I didnt like how mara sounded like a petulant teenage boy
I would recommend this to my friends because it is an awesome book, just about everyone has seen the original Star Wars films, that is all you need to jump right into this book.
The understandable characters, Timothy Zahn makes characters living a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away seem like real people.
His flair for portraying multiple characters
Star Wars the way it was meant to be!
I was blown away by the quality, attention to detail, and overall excellent treatment to this book. The voices, music, and sound effects are all done to perfection. This audio experience has made it a brand new book to me! I can't recommend this high enough for any fans of sci-fi, even if you don't like Star Wars. PLEASE finish the trilogy in this same manner!!!
The amazing performance by Marc Thompson. The variety in his voices, the understanding of what he is reading... Simply amazing. I wish all audiobooks were read this well.
Admiral Thrawn - the accent, the sound of genius.
Sadly, I haven't yet had the pleasure, but I will gladly look to other books read by Mr. Thompson.
Neither. I know the story very well having read it as a kid.
This book has to appear in everyone's library. Even if only to see how amazing an audiobook can be.
