The story was great and well put together. I would say that this is a must for any Star Wars fan. The only complant I have is that the other two books is the series are abridged and the voice work is not nearly as well done as Marc Thompsons. Get this one you won't be sorry!
It was very easy to engross myself in this book. It was the next best thing to watching it on the screen.
Thrawn without a doubt is an amazing and complex character.
His tone and inflection were perfect. He also gave each character their own personality and accent in his narration making it very easy to follow and imagine.
Legend For Life
For those who have been wondering....
Unabridged Dark Force Rising and The Last Command audiobooks coming in June
We might not be getting further annotated editions of the Timothy Zahn classics, but at least audiobook fans are getting something: Unabridged recordings of Dark Force Rising and The Last Command will be coming out in June, Random House audio announced this week. Read by Marc Thompson, the audiobooks will be available digitally on June 26.
The fact they use accurate sound effects as well as character impersonations makes this book fantastic.
Not going to spoil it :)
Amazing ability to impersonate characters.
I would but do not have the time.
Cannot wait for the other 2 books!
The time was not well spent. Over 13 hours and almost no action. Luke Skywalker only pulls his lightsaber a total of 3 times! Too long, too boring.
The way the unimportant details dragged on and on with almost no action. The final
My first Marc Thompson performance but he did a GREAT job.
I wouldn't buy the sequels. Heck, I wouldn't listen to them if I got them for free like I did this book. Too boring.
I heard this is the best of the Star Wars novels, if that's the case, then this will be my last Star Wars Novel. It's the first one I've ever listened to and it was incredibly boring. I'll stick to watch The Clone Wars series.
Timothy Zahn caught the excitement of the Star Wars series. This is a great series as it carries on with what happens in the
Mostly that it is unabridge. Excellent narration on top of a great story.
I hope they will do the other two books in the trilogy also. And I really hope this starts a trend of unabridge Star Wars and Star Trek titles being done!
Marc Thompsom does a great job with effects but I would wait until the unabridged series is finished.
Best so far, however I've only completed 2 books. The performance alone I think will keep this ranked among my top.
Marc Thompson was truly splendid with the wide range of characters he portrayed. His Lando got me every time.
Sucked me into the expanded universe and now I'm hooked. I only wish there were more expanded universe Star Wars books that were unabridged.
I picked up books 2 and 3 on my Kindle after listening to this so that I could finish the trilogy. I truly hope they continue releasing unabridged versions of books 2 and 3 of the Thrawn Trilogy and Marc Thompson does the narration. I would put whatever book I was listening to on hold to listen to them.
