    "Thank you - finally - for unabridged versions"

    It so wonderful to see an unabridged version of a Star Wars story! Keep it coming Random House

    I loved the story - it was a softer, regrouping after the last series and the characters that we meet as we trace the Millennium Falcon's past are as unique and varied as the ship itself - I can see many of these characters popping up in future stories!

    "Star Wars: Millennium Falcon"

    Marc Thompson is great as always. I could listen to this guy read the back of my cereal box. As for the story. Come aboard for the journey, not the destination. Resign yourself to being content with the disjointed meanderings of the author. The conclusion, much like this review, is lack luster. Still, beats the heck out of listening to some blow hard disk jockey during the commute.

    "Punch it Chewie!"

    Great addition to the Star Wars collection. This book puts you in the Millennium falcon and paints a picture that fits perfect with the Star Wars universe. And its unabridged which makes it that much better. I would reccommend this book to any Star Wars fan.

    Story
    "Taste Great...Not Very Filling"
    Would you try another book from James Luceno and/or Marc Thompson?

    James Luceno writes great Star Wars novels and Marc Thompson is by far the best narrator for turning the readings into a movie-like experience. This book managed to be entertaining yet somehow unsatisfying. It's depth of plot is comparable to the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.


    What could James Luceno have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Although enjoyable to listen to, the storyline was shallow compared to the other novels and series.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Much like cotton candy, this story was tasty and fun to ingest but not very filling. Die-hard fans may have a hard time taking it seriously.

    "Great listen!"

    I got the hard cover version of this book for Christmas and I just haven't had the time to pick it up over the last five months. Audible and an mp3 player finally made it possible to enjoy it.

    This was my first audio book. My biggest concern was narration but Marc Thompson was fantastic and brought great energy to the story. My only experience with Star Wars was the movies and a couple of games. I was aware of the back story but this was my first experience with it as well. While this is a great listen I found myself wondering what happened, how did they get here, to this point I mean. Made me do a little research, only to find out that there are a lot more books to listen to if I want to find out. All in all a fun listen though. Enjoy!

    "Good history!"

    This book is a must read for any Han Solo/Falcon fan. The hunt was really cool.
    One downside was the trouble that they were getting into with the gray jedi, was not explained well enough or expounded upon enough.
    Also, the back stories of some of the former owners of the Falcon were very long & tiring.

    "Cool history of the Falcon w/future of the Solos"

    First off if you have been downloading the abridged books, this one's pace may seem to lag at times. There is a lot of background information, and two story line going on at the same time. I agree with others that the climax is a bit of a let down, but the book ties great into the Fate of the Jedi series. In fact I suggest you listen or read this one before moving on to the Fate of the Jedi. Over all the negatives weren't enough to keep me from enjoying this novel.

    "Great story about Falcon"
    What did you like best about Star Wars? What did you like least?

    I loved the rich history of the millennium falcon. The worst part was the abrupt lazy ending. I feel it was written by a ninth grade creative writing student that didn't know how to end the story. cheap and lame.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Luceno again?

    No way.


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

    He has a good range of voices. I enjoy his work.


    Was Star Wars worth the listening time?

    I'm torn. it was, until the ending cheapened the book.


    Any additional comments?

    the book should have ended as book 1 of a trilogy. that way, the author could expand on the story and not take a lazy way out.

    Story
    "This Guys writes Star Wars"
    What did you like most about Star Wars?

    If there is any writer that should be brought onboard for the next Star Wars Movie. It`s James Luceno. He writes this universe like he grew up in it. That`s it, a writer who see`s the characters and fully fleshes them out. R A Salvatore does this to. They could make it be great again.


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

    All his work and R A Salvatore`s too could make the next Star Wars installment incredible.


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

    He has the voices down cold and I believe he is the characters as he flits between them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole passing the baton of a ship that has served well to it`s beloved owner from generation to generation. The Falcon is Star War`s version of an Enterprise.


    Any additional comments?

    If there is anything in the Galaxy that I could own. It would be a YT1300 Correllian freighter. New of the production line ready to have adventures.
