    The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents. Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses.

    What made the experience of listening to Allegiance: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Timothy Zahn is a can't miss in my eyes and ears. Simply the best! Marc Thompson is an awesome narrator! These storm troopers have a heart and brains.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The trio of Luke, Han and Leia after the destruction of the first Death Star. Also, getting to hear Mara Jade in action as the Emperor's Hand was too good to pass up, especially face to face with Darth Vader!


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Storm Trooper LaRone.


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

    I couldn't, but definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    Zahn and Thompson...perfect together.

    In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Jerry Lewis recounts with crystal clarity every step of a 50-year friendship, from the springtime, 1945 afternoon when the two vibrant young performers destined to conquer the world together met on Broadway and 54th Street, to their tragic final encounter in the 1990s, when Lewis and his wife ran into Dean Martin, a broken and haunted old man.

    We were not created to just get by with average, unrewarding or unfulfilling lives. God created us to leave our marks on our generations. Every person has seeds of greatness planted within by the Creator. When life weighs upon us, pushing us down, limiting our thinking, labeling us in negative ways, we have what it takes to overcome and rise above into the fullness of our destinies.

    Angela says: "Extremely motivating and a good listen! Funny too!"

    Story
    Where does Break Out! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Inspirationally, in a league of its own. I found it very moving in his use of anecdotes, as well as inspirational in the stories of ordinary people who have had extraordinary lives.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joel's mother who with polio and a bad leg still work skirts with pride.


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

    It's as if I'm listening to him at Lakewood and enjoying a private sermon that is not preachy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh at times and was moved many times by this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to anyone who needs that caring voice of wisdom and faith.

    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....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) to be better than the print version?

    No question about it. I got through it a lot faster and the sound effects helped my visualization.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thrawn is a brilliant tactician and written well as a villain who is not egocentric or pompous, simply that darn good!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to name just one.
