    While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes - going from one danger to a far greater one.

    A new Jeeves audiobook is cause for celebration, especially when the stories are not available in print. This hilarious installment of the inimitable manservant Jeeves and his twit of an employer, Bertie Wooster, includes the earliest stories written by the master of the pen, prank, and pun. The stories are woven together with original material performed by Martin Jarvis.

    Tad Davis says: "Martin Jarvis is perfect"

    Dick Van Dyke, indisputably one of the greats of the golden age of television, is admired and beloved by audiences the world over for his beaming smile, his physical dexterity, his impeccable comic timing, his ridiculous stunts, and his unforgettable screen roles.

    "Still Inspires Me and Funny."
    Overall

    I love this book, my wife told me about this book and I got hooked from his first story. It is a fast listen and hearing Mr Van Dyke tell his own story is worth it. I can't imagine any other narrator telling his story. I have been a fan sense The Dick Van Dyke show and a big Mary Poppins fan. He is a big inspiration in my life as for I am a family comedy performer.

    After a violent civil war and the devastation wrought by the now-fallen Darth Caedus, the Galactic Alliance is in crisis and in need. From all corners, politicians, power brokers, and military leaders converge on Coruscant for a crucial summit to restore order, negotiate differences, and determine the future of their unified worlds. But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi.

    Kir Kanos TN says: "This Series has Potential, but off to a slow start"
    "Star Wars books worth the Price"
    Overall

    I truly am a big Star Wars fan. These books being read to me is like watching a new movie when a book comes out. Fate of Jedi is the same. This is suppose to be a nine book series. I am waiting for the third book already.
    The Star Wars books on Audible is enough for me to keep with Audible.
