Go beyond the film with a novelization featuring new scenes and expanded material.
As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has learned of a sinister Imperial plot to bring entire worlds to their knees. Deep in Empire-dominated space, a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate...and a threat that may be too great to overcome.
If the worlds at the Empire's mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire's military; Chirrut Ïmwe, a blind holy man; his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters. In their hands rests the new hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion victory - if only they can capture the plans to the Empire's new weapon.
But even as they race toward their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate enemy - a monstrous world unto itself - darkens the skies, waiting to herald the Empire's brutal reign with a burst of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.

"An enjoyable listen"
Yes, I find Jonathan Davis a very good narrator and the story was enjoyable.
...the bit where (spoilers)
Darth Vader Strikes Back Harder.....
Yeah,, why won't audible UK offer me the ability to buy the Marc Thompson performed Unabridged Timothy Zahn 'Thrawn Trilogy' of 'Heir to the Empire', 'Dark Force Rising' and 'The Last Command' Audiobooks that are available to buy from the Audible US store?
"Shame about the sound effects"
Great story, but its a shame that the sound effects make listening difficult in places. Screeching sounds in places drowns out the narrative .
"really enjoyabe listen. great work"
really enjoyabe listen.
narration was great with the bonus of John williams soundtrack and sound effects
"better than the force awakens"
very good, goes more in depth than the movie by exploring the characters
Jyn, simply because she had a tragic past and was trying to find her way in the universe
the climax, full of action with great sound effects
Rogue One The Force Awakens
This is a very good book that has an in depth story allowing you to know a lot more about what is going on in the characters minds when they are do certain tasks. It is also the first audiobook that I have listen too that has sound effects. I would definitely recommend buying this book to listen too due to the fact it is a great read.
"An excellent storey and performance."
Storey and performance were both excellent, the use of sound effects and music really bringing the narration to life.
"A thousand times better than the movie"
Takes the movie and adds heart and warmth and character. This is an amazing book. Tip. Read catalyst, a Rogue One Story first. Not as good, but sets the foundation for most of the character driven action.
The deapth it gives to the movie. Reading this after seeing the movie is one thing, but this is so well crafted it stands alone as a fantastic sicence fiction novel.
Difficult to say. They are all fleshed out so well
"Great story and Fantastically narrated"
This story was well worth the money . I now want to listen to A New Hope to carry on the the story arc
had me hooked instantly and was very good and overall was just a very very good audio book
fleshed out all the members of the team. very happy with the length of the book and the reading and sound efects were very good.
