    Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn's command, the Republic has one last hope: sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn's terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C'baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

    Any additional comments?

    The Thrawn series was excellent. It was very enjoyable to listen too. I find a good starwars book lights the thrill of stories inside me then so I have to find another to listen too. I venture off to other things in the world until another excellent one pops up and brings that excitement and thirst back.

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

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

    Yes I have recommended it to family and friends. Excellent description of how introverted or quiet people do and can live their lives.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The authors descriptions of her personel experiences.


    Which character – as performed by Kathe Mazur – was your favorite?

    Herself


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

    I listened to it until I was done over a few days, didnt get bored or go to a different book.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I would have had this when I was a child or something similar. I also wish I would have had it as a new parent years ago when my children turned out shy and quiet. I dealt with my life the way I saw best and tried to teach that. "Quiet" describes what I did to cope with the world around me but not everyone can do it my way etc...
