I would recommend this to any Star Wars fan who wants to truly relive the spirit of the old stories! If you have ever loved Star Wars (the original trilogy), and enjoy audiobooks, ORDER THIS IMMEDIATELY!!! Why are you waiting? Reading this is taking too long! Go order it now and then come back to this review. It'll be here waiting when you get back.
The sound effects are very well done and add tremendously to the storytelling.
Marc Thompson's vocal performances are above reproach. He does Han, Luke, and Lando perfectly and distinctively. Talon Karde sounded like he was being played by Ricardo Montalban (which is absolutely fine in my book). Palleon was brusque and almost fatherly. And to actually hear his voice for Grand Admiral Thrawn gave me chills. Very, very well done!
The John Williams score (and all variations composed for all movies in the franchise) was present and really lent an emotional weight to the performance. Great stuff!
I was truly sad when the audiobook was over. I have read the books several times, but to hear it like this, I felt like I was really spending time with it. It had real personality that was truly reminiscent of the original trilogy. Now, I miss it like I would a person. I greatly hope that they put together the same performance quality for the two other books in the series!
