It's compelling, fun, and bring you back to what Star Wars was before the Prequels!
Grand Admiral Thrawn! he's my favorite EU character of all time.
He's smart, interesting, and has so much going for him. He's the Palpatine of the non-force-users.
It will always be Han. Just awesome.
I don't get moved by Films (with the exception of Act of Valor), Books, etc.
This was my favorite Star Wars book since the moment I read it for the first time. In the Star Wars cannon the films can overwrite any EU materiel, I loved this this book so much that I categorize any thing else that may contradict this novel as non-cannon.
Anyways after This was released i had to listen to it and Marc does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. If you say your a Star Wars fan then read/listen to this! That's an Order!
A Hermit with a pen
This was an incredible story. Zahn extended the Star Wars universe seamlessly and Marc Thompson breathes life into this great work.
The saga continues. The worse part about the Star Wars movies is that they end. Heir to the Empire continues the story keep fans satiated.
Marc Thompson does an incredible job brining all the characters to life. Admiral Thrawn is one of the coolest villains I've ever come across. Thompson also does a great job as Han Solo.
The Storm of Thrawn.
I loved the book but we need the rest of the Trilogy in the Unabridged version so we can continue the whole story
Twenty years ago, Zahn jump starting of the expanded, post ROTJ Star Wars with an epic trilogy that remains a standard by which all later Star Wars books were judged. Seeing this special edition unabridged recording inspired me to revisit this title to see how well it held up. For the most part, it has aged well. Zahn offering a compelling and swift moving narrative giving us a look at life in that galaxy far far away after the Rebellion's victory.
Most important of all, though, is the unabridged redition of the complete story. To many Star Wars novels suffer from their abridgement into audiobook form. This gives the full experience and I hope that we will get to have the other two books of this trilogy in unabridged form soon as well.
Wow, what an amazing production!
I'm blown away by the quality and the performance that Marc Thompson has done.
Excellent book and I believe excellent starting point for those trying to understand who in the heck Thrawn is.
I recently started reading Star Wars and am anxious to start the second book.
Excellent narration; the production is amazing! It's been years since I read these books and Mr. Thompson's narration brings them to life in the most delightful way!
