    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator has one voice, one tone, and no sound effects. It was a major effort to remain conscious.


    What other book might you compare Rainbow Six to and why?

    The quintessential opposite would be any of the Harry Potter book narrations.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

    Mark Thompson, Jim Dale, Gerard Doyle


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

    Yes

    When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn't count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord. Being an empath has never been easy on Jade's relationships. It's no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it's up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her.

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

    Yes. The book is a fresh change from recent publications. It touches on the metaphysical and the current.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The heroin. Her character development was real.


    What does Traci Odom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A wonderful dramatization.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Witches, Angels, and Demons in the Crescent City. A modern day battle between good and evil. A resurrection of the eternal battle between God and Satan.

    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....

    Ryan says: "It's about time!"

    Story
    What did you love best about Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition)?

    I found that this book filled in some of the gaps in the Hans Solo - Princess Leha saga.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition)?

    Leha's escape from the ambush on Kashyyyk, while pregnant with the twins.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Marc Thompson just doesn't have a sufficient vocals range. His various voices are rather monotonous and repetitive. When you compare him to the vocals of other audio books performers, like Jim Dale or Gerard Doyle, he just doesn't stand up.


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

    There are always moments that move me in the Star Wars books. I am a true fan of Lucian Philosophy/Theology and the books that communicate his creation.
