Audible has made it possible for me to get into Star Wars novels again! I stopped reading Star Wars novels because it became to hard for me to follow what was going on. But when someone's reading the novel to you, it makes the exerience much more enjoyable.
Overall, I like the direction that this novel goes. Jacen's overconfidence in his abilities is very apparent, but not so much that it makes his character one sided. The struggle of the Corellians, and Han's dedication to his homeworld, gives the story an interesting twist, and the tie in's from past novels and material gives this Expanded Universe great depth. The only thing about the plot that I found confusing was how willing Jacen was to listen to Lumiya and except what she had to say.
The only other real detractor, which everyone seems to agree upon, is the abridgement of the story. It makes things choppy and hard to follow sometimes.
Overall though, a great story, worth the listen.
