I would absolutely listen to the Heir to the Empire audiobook again. Marc Thompson has an uncanny ability to bring our favorite SW characters back to life. He not only imitates the voices of the characters but he also instills the correct mannerisms and inflections that only an expert narrator could. Thus listening to an audibook narrated by him is akin to watching one of the movies.
The work put into this book has the same amount of professionalism and experience as the other books narrated by Thompson. The characters sound like what they're supposed to and the sounds are phenomenal. Of course no one can forget John Williams score which is also used in this book.
Recently I listened to the Force Awakens narrated by Marc Thompson. Both TFA and HttE are unparalled in terms of the expertise of the work that went into making the audiobooks.
I loved how dedicated the Wookiees were in protecting Leia. It really showed how seriously they took honor and repaying a debt to past saviors.
The only negative part of this audibook I would have to say is Mara Jade. Not only is she a cold-hearted and conniving villain throughout most of the book, I also feel that this is one of Thompson's weaker performances. She almost sounds like a man due to the performance and I really hope that she's more tolerable in Dark Force Rising. It's almost surprising that she turns out to be Luke's wife.
Love having an unabridged version, this book and its attention to detail is phenomenal! The sound effects and voicing are endearing. Looking forward for the other two!
loved this book the mix of politics and so much action that just pulls you into the battles and paints the most vivid battle field. I wouldn't recommend passing this book up it is a classic and still one of the best.
Yes, It was a great read. Very well wrote
Yes and he is very strong; just hate the Wookie scene very annoying lol
No that is hard for any book
Try you will enjoy
I loved it . had no idea that has been out for 20 years or I would have read it twenty years ago. I must read for any Star Wars fan trying to fill in the gaps between the movies. thrawn is a great bad guy and I hope someday Disney makes this series into a movie
some of the chapters have an unbearable hum in the background that distracts entirely from the story. I think it's the chapters on the falcon
This was my first foray into a Star Wars audiobook and it was great! Superbly narrated with sound effects. The novel excellently stitched together several story lines which trailed the main characters, whom alternately weaved into and out of each other's events throughout the book.
There was suspense aplenty which makes me want the second book in this trilogy.
I loved it when it first came out and still do. Great performance by Marc Thompson.
Rawrs voice irks, but a decent story. Author does a good job imitating Han, Chewie and Skywalkers. Thrawn does sound pretty menacing. My 2 issues are the sound Rawr makes, it's too grating on the nerves; and some of the background becomes to loud.
Overall a decent story. I'm interested to see where it leads. And that's what counts.
