    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?

    It is a well put together audio book. I hope they decide to do more I do not listen to abridged at all. I feel it takes to much away from the story. I hope they decide to do the rest of them


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

    I never listen to sci-fi before so I can't compare it to anything else I have listened to because they are not in the same category. I will have to start looking at more sci-fi but hard to get away from the thrillers.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Luke or Solo


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

    Not sure where I would cry in this book but I did find myself laughing out loud with my wife giving me what the hell looks at me.

    Kate, Michael, and Emma have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage. Yet these unwanted children are more remarkable than they could possibly imagine. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about. Until now. Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey to dangerous and secret corners of the world....

    Stacey says: "Fantastic addicting fantasy"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Emerald Atlas?

    I thought the story could of been a bit stronger. The book made you want more so I hope they add more details in the next one. Could of done without the first 2 or 3 chapters.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The christmas party was the most interesting part. The very beginning of the book was least


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

    Yes I can listen to anything Jim Dale I believe. But his performance with Harry Potter is the best.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    CoCo says: "Excellent and engaging"
    "Great book with a killer 2nd to follow"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lion's Game to be better than the print version?

    Yes I can visualize everything the reader is saying.


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

    Scott brings life to the different characters. He is hard to get used to in the beginning but I have probably listened close to 30 books he has read.
