I remember hearing these stories years ago on tape. It was such a treat to find them at Audible. The story is awesome. This radio drama includes a talented cast with real star wars sounds and great music. It's a "must hear" for every Star Wars fan. The only bummer is the missing part three - Is there a SW:Dark Empire Part III anywhere?
It's an interesting direction the author attempts to take but the performance by the readers honestly takes away from this book. In to many instances it feels "forced". But I'm a Star Wars fan and ultimately I'll give it a passing grade based on that alone......
IT'S not a story by The Genius George Lucas. But anything from his Star Wars Galaxies is worth listening to. I will order the next book. May THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
the voice actors who act out the story are great. thry sound so much like the real actors from the movies you can't tell the difference and if you could you'd be surprised. It's well worth the purchase I dont regreat it and you wont either. May the Force be with you!
Fun to hear this story from star wars expanded universe. many ideas for later storied originated here like force storms and holocrons
It's hard to say who might enjoy it since the hardest part was actually hearing the entire performance.
Audio was terrible and I couldn't pin down why. Maybe some parts were phoned in and others took place in the sound studio. But some conversations were one sided because the other half could barely be heard. I blame the sound engineer for dropping the ball on that one.
Billy Dee was awesome but then again he had the easiest job. Although I think the rest of the cast may have come across less cheesy if they didn't try so hard to sound like their characters and just acted like their characters.
Disappointed. Not being able to hear everything hurt the performances the most.
A remastering might be in order so all the dialogue can be heard and not just parts of it.
I guess it seemed like the characters were all from either Texas or New Jersey. It felt like it was read too fast. I couldn't even complete the book. I am sure it was meant to be a great story but it fell short in my opinion I'm sad to say.
After listening to Timothy Zahns and Drew Karpyshyns other Star Wars Audible-books, this one was a real disappointment. Voices, story and performance...:-( I didn't manage to get through the last part..
careful, but I don't think I dare, since I don't know whether it is Tom Veitch's bad, or someone else to blame...
Actors, sound quality, effects, - sorry - just about everything
I wish I could exchange it for some other book
Since I nearly got through this audible-book, I haven't bought a new one, I
Yes, but only because it is the Star Wars franchise
This was a very underwhelming story. More appropriate for the ages of 6 to 13 year olds.
Reluctantly yes. Some characters were flat in their performance and inconsistent with the movie personalities.
The redeeming quality is that it is an important part of the Luke Skywalker development from Jedi Master to Grand Master.
They should rewrite this story becasue it is too important of a development in the re-emergence of the Jedi.
