    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    What other book might you compare Endurance to and why?

    I would compare this book to "Into Thin Air" on steroids.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was jubilant for even the tiniest victory the crew had.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was spectacular. Every moment I kept thinking it couldn't get any worse, and it kept on going. Every trial is more difficult than the last. The things they have to do with the lack of equipment is truly unbelievable. This book is about triumph of the will and Shackleton's will is greater than nearly anyone in history.

    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    If you could sum up Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) in three words, what would they be?

    Best Production Ever


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    I have to say, he gives voice to Thrawn, and I think the acting is pitch perfect.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has amazing production values. You forget at times you are listening to a novel, and instead find yourself engrossed in the action and dialogue. It reminds me of old time radio programs. Marc Thompson makes you forget he is one person, a truly amazing voice acting performance. I will buy all the books he reads.
