    The dying Empire's most cunning and ruthless warlord - Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic's destruction. With the aid of unimaginable weapons long hidden away on a backwater planet, Thrawn plans to turn the tide of battle, overwhelm the New Republic, and impose his iron rule. Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican Council.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The performance by Marc Thomson is very good, perhaps even better than that in the first audiobook.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    A bit foreshadowed by the first half of the book. The author was definitely going for a symmetry with the original trilogy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Mara and Luke rescuing Tallon was very reminiscent of the first Star Wars movie, perhaps a little too much


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    not really that kind of book I'm afraid


    Any additional comments?

    I think of the three stories it is the weakest, but it does have its good points. It is well worth listening to because the third part in the trilogy is very good. Hopefully when they make the next Star Wars movies they use these books for the screenplay,

  • The Problems with Philosophy

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 34 mins)

    The Problems of Philosophy discusses Bertrand Russell's views on philosophy and the problems that arise in the field. Russell's views focus on knowledge rather than the metaphysical realm of philosophy. The Problems with Philosophy revolves around the central question that Russell asks in his opening line of Chapter 1 - Is there any knowledge in the world which is so certain that no reasonable man could doubt it?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Oh yes. I like to listen to books like this just before I drift off to sleep. The ideas were stimulating and the voice droned a bit so it helped me to fall asleep in no time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Basic ideas of philosophy that were reasonably clearly expressed.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not appropriate.
