Top 5 maybe best every, If i had my way Marc Thompson would be narrating all classic SI-FI, space operas, ect... I have listen to some great books with dull narration, Marc Thompson and RANDOM HOUSE could revive so many really great books, and sound effects! Great movie for my mind!
Lando and Thrawn! Karrd! Skywalker, I loved them all!
Top Notch, I wish he would go back and do all STAR WARS books unabridged and with this detail to voices and the great sound effects! Why doesn't other SI-FI books have all this great depth!
He could make so many great classic SI-FI come back to life with great narration of character voicing as well as the great sound effects, just enough effects without overwhelming the narration, perfect!
Laughed in parts, really made me think of Han and Lando and the smuggler banter. Also just made me feel like this audio book will set the bar high for future purchases. You are really watching/ listening to a a great movie in the star wars.
I just wish more books were this thorough, unabridged only please, RANDOM HOUSE, HEAR ME, KEEP THIS GOING! FIND MORE GREAT SI-FI and get Marc Thompson on it! Keep whoever does the editing and sound effects as well! Great job all! This one was worth every penny and will keep me buying books with this crew of people.
Top Ten in my favorites so far from audible. I think I will be getting more of Alastair Reynolds books. I'm still exploring audible.com. I like SIFI, FANTASY and a little HORROR from time to time. This hits allot of notes and it does it in a great way. I like the characters, very unique. And a smart, well laid out book.
Peter Hamilton comes to mind, thou this is a little less dense than Hamilton. But for SIFI readers who want a good size book, semi hard sifi with some well done character development. And a different story than the usual 18 year old girl finds super power plug in that is ramped right now this is really refreshing and different and in a good way.
Yes, I think it was well read. I am a little spoiled with Marc Thompson from the Star wars series but John Lee is pleasing over all. He has a semi monotone voice but he did a good job over all.
Space is Dark but your not Alone in the Dark!
Good story, no remake here. Something different. very well done.
The great depth to characters and story board. Nice universe they create here.
DUNE is definitely has a slight infulnace with the hierarchy and political sides. But well done and totally new. Nice concepts and story telling.
Yes, he is a good story teller, better than most.
no, I understand this questions intent. NO ABRIDGED BOOKS! Since fiction reads want all the authors details as he or she has laid them out. ONLY MAKE UNABRIDGED AUDIO BOOKS FOR SY-FI! thanks you, ill only purchase unabridged.
I have gotten spoiled with the STAR WARS line of books that has edited music and noise. All si-fi books should have edited sound effects.
1. Marc Thompson
2. sound effects (not overwhelming, just right, enjoyable!)
3. unabridged, I will only buy unabridged at this point, to bad they chopped a few good series buy going cheap and doing abridged. kills the authors book! ( But this one is great, unabridged, worht every penny)
These there items will purchase more books. Ill spend money if these three items are met.Simple. I wish allot of the sifi classics were redone with these three items mentioned.
heir tot h empire, book 1. Not many this is cream of the crop. A movie for your mind.
In-depth character voices, unique for each person/ alien. Spot on for Han, Lando (my fav), narrated with the right level for the parts he is reading. simply the best out there. my complements to him and random house.
great book, highly recommended!
