    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....

    Where does Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lando and Thrawn! Karrd! Skywalker, I loved them all!


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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!


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Only the most desperate colonists dare to make a new home on Hellhole. Reeling from a recent asteroid impact, tortured with horrific storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and churning volcanic eruptions, the planet is a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits, and charlatans…but also a haven for dreamers and independent pioneers. Against all odds, an exiled general named Adolphus has turned Hellhole into a place of real opportunity for the desperate colonists who call the planet their home.

    What did you love best about Hellhole?

    The great depth to characters and story board. Nice universe they create here.


    What other book might you compare Hellhole to and why?

    DUNE is definitely has a slight infulnace with the hierarchy and political sides. But well done and totally new. Nice concepts and story telling.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Yes, he is a good story teller, better than most.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: Dark Force Rising the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: Dark Force Rising to and why?

    heir tot h empire, book 1. Not many this is cream of the crop. A movie for your mind.


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

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?
