  • Star Wars: The Jedi Academy Trilogy, Volume 1: Jedi Search

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Kevin J. Anderson
    • Narrated By Anthony Heald

    While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes - going from one danger to a far greater one.

    Cade says: "Bad way to ruin a good book."
    "Abridged but still fun"
    Where does Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I got my membership & started listening to the newest Star Wars novels when a glaucoma surgery was going to keep me from reading for a month.

    The newest versions are superbly engaging. They are also unabridged so lots of ideas as well as extra back story about the Star Wars universe comes out.

    Still, I liked the story and it is interesting to hear even the abridged version as this is the background for all of the later novels I have been listening to for the last few months.

    I recommend these recordings though mostly because they are no unabridged versions.

    Would you recommend Star Wars to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. Lots of fun for those of us who want to continue the on-going saga and learn more about the philosophy of the Force.

    Did Anthony Heald do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Mostly. I always knew who was who.

  • Path of Destruction: Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 11 mins)
    • By Drew Karpyshyn
    • Narrated By Jonathan Davis

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Karen says: "Great Story, Fantastic Production"
    If you could sum up Path of Destruction in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling, informative, fun

    What did you like best about this story?

    Learning the background of the Sith Rule of Two.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    They were all so good.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Each time that Bane becomes more aware of how the world around him needs to be changed.

    Any additional comments?

  • Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition), The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Timothy Zahn
    • Narrated By Marc Thompson
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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....

    Ryan says: "It's about time!"
    "Still great story after 20 years"
    Would you listen to Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) again? Why?

    I would listen to this story again because it is so well written and performed.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Admiral Thrawn was my favorite character because he has so much depth.

    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    He really is THE actor for Star Wars reading... so many great voices and such good pacing.
