    Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star.

    What disappointed you about Razor's Edge?

    I was disappointed by the story and the narrator.


    What could Martha Wells have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not sexist in the slightest but I found it odd that in the first few chapters of the book we ran into more women serving in the rebellion than in all the movies combined AND they all happened to be on the same ship at the same time.


    What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

    Her female voices were all pretty much the same and her male voices were lower pitched versions of her female voices and all were pretty much the same as her narrating voice. I had a hard time distinguishing narration and dialogue.


    What character would you cut from Razor's Edge?

    I cannot suggest a character to cut from the Razor's Edge because I was not able to finish the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was not able to finish the book due to the narration. If I had a physical copy, I could push through my misgivings about the story but not with this narrator.
