Scoundrels: Star Wars | [Timothy Zahn]

Scoundrels: Star Wars

Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

Publisher's Summary

To make his biggest score, Han's ready to take even bigger risks.

But even he can't do this job solo.

Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

That's what a mysterious stranger is offering in exchange for Han's less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper. The payoff will be more than enough for Han to settle up with Jabba - and ensure he never has to haggle with the Hutts again.

All he has to do is infiltrate the ultra-fortified stronghold of a Black Sun crime syndicate underboss and crack the galaxy's most notoriously impregnable safe. It sounds like a job for miracle workers...or madmen. So Han assembles a gallery of rogues who are a little of both - including his indispensable sidekick Chewbacca and the cunning Lando Calrissian. If anyone can dodge, deceive, and defeat heavily armed thugs, killer droids, and Imperial agents alike - and pull off the heist of the century - it's Solo's scoundrels. But will their crime really pay, or will it cost them the ultimate price?

    "Timothy Zahn delivers again"
    Where does Scoundrels: Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since most of my library is Star Wars and I joined Audible to listen to Star Wars I will only compare it to them. I would put this one 4th on my list behind the Thrawn Trilogy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The oceans eleven feel that the story had, Han had to recruit all these different smugglers and criminals to pull off this big heist. How all the different characters had different reasons for being there and how they all seem to have consciences and feelings about each other, not some soulless characters that you don't care about.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't really want to give the story away but my favorite scenes are them putting their plan into action.


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

    I didn't have an extreme reaction but I greatly enjoyed it and would be interested hearing more from this writing/reading tandem that seems to do so well together.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like any of the author's other books you will like this one, and twice as much if you're a Han Solo fan.

    "Great little side story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, if they liked star wars books


    What other book might you compare Scoundrels: Star Wars to and why?

    I would say it's similar to the latest X-Wing book, Mercy Kill.


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

    Marc Thompson is one of the best readers of SW audiobooks, I hope he continues to do more in the future. It's very irritating that some readers do not pronounce the names of things correctly, which isn't the case with him.

    "Oceans Eleven meets Star Wars"

    This is a fun easy listen from the creator of the Thrawn Trilogy. The Narrator does a phenomenal job jumping between voices. I thought the plot got a bit outlandish at times but this is Star Wars after all so you have to be expecting things to be a bit out there. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the movies.

    "Surprises all the way to the end!"
    What made the experience of listening to Scoundrels: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Great story to slot between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Gives a lot of background on why Han & Lando have such a strained relationship, and a great surprise ending! A great read/listen for any Star Wars fan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The reveal at who was running the caper at the very end.

    "Zahn+Thompson=gold"
    Would you listen to Scoundrels: Star Wars again? Why?

    Interesting plot lines, some a bit obvious but never-the-less good listening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    When you find out the Fettman was involved all along!


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

    Thompson's performances are what initially got me interested in audio books. His ability to grasp the movie characters voices in incredible, You feel as if you are listening to the characters from the movies!


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

    I laughed at parts and some make you a bit misty


    Any additional comments?

    Only thing i didn't like was noone from the 'good' team died. Which I know is cliche for the series of star wars but come on, at least 1 persona should have could have died without ruining the franchise line :D
