I usually hate abridged books, but Timothy Zahn is a magician. If you like his work, I would recommend this book. If you haven't read the Thrawn Trilogy, it would still be good, but it's better if you have.
Pretty good. I enjoyed the cast, and I was repeating the names from the book days after I had finished it. An interesting novel. I suppose I can see why this is one of the classics in sci fi, but to be honest I was a little disappointed. I mean, sure it was a great "read,", it was riveting, it was interesting, but to me, it just wasn't on par with other 'classics' as I see them. Although I'm to understand this book has somewhat of a cult following, to me it isn't anything more than an above-mediocre sci-fi novel.
Over 32 hours for one credit should be reason enough. If it isn't, then know you are listening to one of the great existentialist pieces of our time. If that isn't enough, know that you will be hearing it through a great narrator who encapsulates everything you think the characters should be. Highly recommended.
Maybe it was because it was abridged (abridged books aren't that great imo). Maybe it was b/c I had just listened to the masterpiece that is Ep III. Either way, I was not impressed.
