    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.

    Rup says: "Good book, but wrong choice of narrator"
    "Feels like a dollar store version of Star Wars"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Razor's Edge?

    The story itself was pretty slow, but I couldn't get past way the narrator did the voices for the male characters...especially the main characters. You get used to quality in the Star Wars novels and this one felt and sounded like a generic knock off version.


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

    A more exciting story line would have been good. This one was very slow. She also used several instances of profanity and innuendo in the book that don't fit well in Star Wars titles. I guess you get used to a certain level of quality and it just wasn't here in this book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of January LaVoy?

    Anyone. You get used to quality like Marc Thompson who actually sounds like the characters from the Star Wars movies. This book sounded more like the movie "The Ringer" with Johnny Knoxville. I just kept imagining Han Solo saying " Hi my name is Glenn...guess how many fingers I have"


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. I have nearly all of the Star Wars titles in my library and this one was actually painful to listen to.
