I would recommend this book to a friend (starting with book 1 of course) because it has all the greatness of Star Wars without the intelligence insulting story of most other Star Wars EU and prequels.
Well, that's a little hard without spoilers. But I guess I'd have to say Han Solo situational and reactionary cleverness at any given situation he finds himself in.
Do books have scenes? I guess the best imagery I have was the escape of the Millennium Falcon from the Star Destroyer.
Thrawn marshals his forces, to destroy the Republic forever.
Rad reading, rad story, it's worth your monthly credit. But start with book 1.
It had many strengths over the printed version. The inclusion of music at key moments literally gave me goosebumps. And when he got the voices right, it was very cool. The only downside, and the whole reason I gave it 4/5 for performance was when he did the girl voices, it was just distractingly bad and awkward. I wish they could have hired at least 1 chick to do some voice reading for this.
Timothy Zahn is, in my opinion, a better care taker of Star Wars cannon than anyone else that I could give (other than myself since I have all my own opinions already built in).
He did the guys voices like Luke, Thrawn, Palleon, Karrde, Lando, really well. C3PO as well. The only male voice that wasn't spot on was Han, but even that eventually grew on me.
I'm not a very emotional guy, but hearing this story with the music and everything, really gave me goosebumps. It was great to hear the story this way.
Stop writing Star Wars episode VII and let Zahn take over in story board. This is the Star Wars fans would choose if IP didn't draw arbitrary lines of violent force over imagination.
