Thompson's performance of Zahn's story is simply spectacular. I feel you like Star Wars, you will love this.
I am so impressed with Marc Thompson's reading of Timothy Zahn's work Star Wars: Dark Force Rising: Thr Thrawn Trilogy Book 2. This is more than just an audible book. It is an experience in my mind. The sound effects and the voices create a new universe that I can carry with me where ever I take my iPhone, which is everywhere.
First: The narration and performance are OUTSTANDING! The narrator does a great job catching the feel (and almost impersonation!) of each character. Very easily distinguished, great work.
Second: The story does a great job of feeling like a natural extension of the original trilogy! The twists won't come as hard as something like game of thrones, but is a great listen if you're a Star Wars fan! Wonderfully accented by the musical themes we've all come to know and love.
Overall: Although not the MOST exciting story, and you never REALLY worry about the fate of the characters, it's great to revisit them in the pre prequel/ JJ Abrahams version Star Wars universe. May the force be with you!!
Timothy Zahn's original Thrawn trilogy (and the 4 other published books that have Thrawn in them somewhat, the Duology + Outbound Flight + Survivor's Quest) are geniune works of art that everyone (hardcore SW fan or not) should read.
The Zahn Thrawn audiobooks that utilize the amazing talents of Marc Thompson to bring all the characters & universe to life really make these novels a must-read, must-listen experience for any human being with who enjoys brilliant storytelling!!!!
great middle book for the Thrawn trilogy, the story is very interesting, characters are great and the performance of the narrator is perfect
Second book of the famous Thrawn Trilogy, Dark Force Rising continues a great story in the Expanded Universe. definitely made all the more engaging with Marc Thompson narrating, and great iconic star wars sound effects in the background. The Thrawn Trilogy is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting to begin a journey into that Expanded Universe far, far away....
Amazing performance to tell the story and I was completely captivated the entire time this series has been the most well done audio series I've heard so far I would definitely recommend listening to all three it's a must-have in your library!
story want bad narrator was good but really was distracting to have sardonically so many times in the story. someone buy a thesaurus for this guy
