The narrator--wow, was there really only one!--made each voice so distinctive, expressive, and believable, even for someone like me who has watched the original movies so many times. I tried reading the trilogy because my daughter loved it so, but I kept bogging down and only got about half through this book. When all three came out in unabridged form I got them. What seemed a little hokey and very hard to follow in print came alive in these audiobooks. The story really was great. It was like having those other three installments to the 9-movie series once talked about. It really was as good as a movie. Truly five stars in every way--the story, the narration, and the production quality.
I read this when it came out, and was excited to see it made an audiobook. I waited until we got the unabridged version.
IMHO Jim Dale reading the Harry Potter series is the gold start by which all other aduiobook performances should be measured. Marc Thompson gives Mr.Dale a real run for his money. He is extremely skilled at it and makes the experience better. I cannot give him enough praise.
I read this trilogy a long time ago, but this audiobook made it an entirely new and awesome experience. If you're a Star Wars fan, then this series is a MUST listen.
Yes, it was good production, love the story
When the katana fleet was found and bel iblise joined the new republic again
A diversity of voices
Good clean fun
It was star wars in its best tradition , good story, good narration had a lot of fun listening to it.
GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN
Its Star Wars so...everything!!
Spoiler alert. All of them
No, but I will listen to it again
Punch it chewy
It is just as good because it is unabridged.
This is just an amazing story! One of my favorites.
If you line up the Thrawn Trilogy with the current two Star Wars film trilogies, based on having listened to books 1 and 2 (so far), I'd put this closely behind the original (New Hope/Empire/RotJ). Excellent narration performance and production values. Fun, fun, fun!
I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.
Hell yeah Marc does an unbelievable job with these books. This is only my 2nd star wars book but I plan on listening to all the ones Marc has done. I would recommend them for anyone.
There are some epic fantasy books out there that you can catch bits and pieces in it but the book can live on it own very easily
he brings you into the world of star wars. I can actually picture the story playing out in my head while I am listening to it.
There was a lot of moments with Mara that are moving in the book.
