    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I've read the book about a year ago, and I found that Daniel Davis has wonderful voices for the different characters in this book. It really helps that he has a deep rich British accent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is nice to learn more about Darth Sidious and his rise to power. He is a complex character and this book really helps me to understand why he did what he did, and exactly how he became Emperor Palpatine.


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

    British accent. Enough said.

    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....

    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) the most enjoyable?

    The sound effects and the reader's accents were amazing! This is the best audiobook I've ever listened to. Not to mention I'm a huge Star Wars fan.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) to and why?

    This is a lot like a cross between a great unabridged book like Lord of the Rings, and a high quality radio drama.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    His accents were mostly spot on. Especially Luke Skywalker and Admiral Thrawn he did a great job varying his tones and subtle voice inflections.


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

    The first time I heard the main "Jedi music" playing when the book mentioned Luke I was hooked.


    Any additional comments?

    The music, sound effects, amazing voice acting, and fantastic story line all together bring a regular boring day of work into a time that I actually look forward to now.
