I enjoyed listening to every second of this audiobook. The story is great with a twist that is new - at least to me - in this universe: Jedi and Sith, Smuggler and Headhunter all working toghether for the same goal.
I very much liked that basically all situations were presented from the perspective of more characters, which I find rare. Gives a fuller experience.
I don't have a favourite scene, but sure would like to try the 'Reactor core'. :)
Han Solo's Eleven
Mark Thompson does an excellent performance on all his characters, but my favourite was Lando Calrissian, as he sounded 100% like Carl Weathers including the accent and everything.
An excellent and exciting story full of twists! I think I'm going to listen to it a 3rd time as well. :-)
Han Solo, of course. :-) Even when in doubt, he plays it cool.
When the missile gets stuck in the Falcon. I know that Han and Chewie eventually survive as they are in the movies, but I was still nervous whether that thing will blow or not. :-)
Another 5-star delivery from Marc Thompson. The only weird thing was Chewie's voice. I just couldn't get used to it, not even by the end of the book. I wish they had used the sound of Chewie from the movies, like in most other Star Wars novel I listened to.
The time period is great, so the reader get's to know what happened between the movies, how the rebels got to where they did. Also exploring the pirate faction is something I enjoyed which is missing from the movies.
Marc Thompson or Jonathan Davis.
January is good in the narrative but just doesn't have the voice and / or the experience to properly do different characters. She delivers an OK performance on the voices but for me Marc Thompson is the king of Star Wars audiobooks.
