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?

    "Story was slow to start"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Scoundrels: Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print. I am all about the audio performances now. I find that the unabridged audio versions narrated by Marc Thompson are amazing. Second only to the original trilogy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end.


    Any additional comments?

    Best EU ending I can think of.

    What did you love best about Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Ocean's 11 feel of this story. It was a lot of fun. There was a whole lot of characters and the narrator did a great job of making them come to life.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is not going to change you view on life, but if your looking for a good book to listen to on a road trip this will keep you well entertained on your drive.

    "Awful narrator. Couldn't make it 10 minutes in..."
    What disappointed you about Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    The narrator was terrible. The voice he did for the "Lord" at the beginning was so grating, I hate to stop listening.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Timothy Zahn again?

    Zahn is great, so yes.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narrator or stop the narrator from doing such an over the top fey British voice. It would be better for a cartoon or something...


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    N/A

    Where does Scoundrels: Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    i would say it was in the middle

    The ending was the weakest part

    Marc does an amazing Han Solo and Lando


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

    no

    I really liked the Oceans Eleven approach on this book, I just wish the ending would have been stronger. It ended on a weak note and felt rushed.

    "You need more Han Solo, right?"
    What made the experience of listening to Scoundrels: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Getting to relive some of the nostalgia from my youth. I love these characters!


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

    No spoiler, but man... what a twist!


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    All of the voices! Occasionally Han would sound like one of the other characters, but his performance is very versatile and authentic to the Star Wars Universe overall.


    Any additional comments?

    While the background ambiances and sounds add to the general Star Wars vibe, it does sound pretty awkward when listening at 2X and 3X speeds.

    "Star Wars Rocks!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Scoundrels: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Tim Zahn is a great writer.....and totally tuned into the Star Wars Universe!


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

    The recently written AudioPlay "Smuggler's Gambit" , or the cheesy but entertaining full cast audio play "Rebel Mission to Ord Mantell", written by the late Brian Daley.


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

    Marc Thompson is an amazing multi-voice actor! Often, while listening, I couldn't tell if it was him alone, or if there were other actors helping him......


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

    No extreme reaction......just a great, entertaining story.....

    "Star Wars: Scoundrels"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Star Wars: Scoundrels is one of my new favorite audiobooks. I've never read or listened to any Expanded Universe stories before, even though I'm a big Star Wars fan, so this was a new adventure for me. And I'm really glad I decided to check this out when I was looking for something light and fun to listen to.

    The story is not even very original, but it's still pretty cool. It's a heist story starring Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando. They've assembled a team to pull off a big con job. It's sort of like Ocean's 11 in a galaxy far, far away. It's set between Episodes IV & V, so there are references to Luke, Leia and some of the other characters. The story still has a lot of action and a few twists that really kept me intrigued.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    I also really enjoyed Marc Thompson's performance and all the sound effects. It really brought me into the Star Wars universe. Marc's take on Han and Lando were especially great!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES!!!... this is a great in between story that just enough ties to the existin time line to make it relevant but still its own story. Also the twist at the end.... Inger you Kyser Soze you......


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

    The nods to "Indiana" Jone and "The Usual Suspects"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The vault break in that is the nod to Indiana Jones


    Any additional comments?

    This is why I love the Star Wars Universe... They can take an existing story formate and still find ways to make me geek out at the end.
