Publisher's Summary

As the war between the Republic and the scattered remnants of the Empire continues, two children, the Jedi twins, will come into their powers in a galaxy on the brink of vast changes and challenges. In this time of turmoil and discovery, an extraordinary new Star Wars saga begins.

While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes - going from one danger to a far greater one.

On Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends, only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han himself.

    Story
    "An amazing book with a horrible reader."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    No


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kyp Durron


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anthony Heald’s performances?

    A definitive NO!


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

    it made me wince in agony at the horrible reading and terrible impressions, the reader frequently miss-pronounced locations such as Corascant, Yavin and names like Mara Jade and more. Not to mention the style and flare which he uses to try and impersonate Han Solo is gaudy and horrible and nothing at all like that of the movies, it is obvious the reader has never even watched a single one of the Movies. and the impersonation of admiral Ackbar is absolutely HORRIBLE. whiny and high pitch is exactly opposite of the movies.


    Any additional comments?

    its sad to hear such a horrible reading of such a great book. and i hope they go through with a second recording with a better reader.

    "Pretty good for an abridged version"

    Having never read the full length book, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the abridged version, I didn't feel like I had really missed anything. Biggest negative though is Anthony Heald's frequent mispronunciation of names and places.

    "story good, production lacked a lot"

    Narrator needs to learn what commas are for! He read way to fast and ran sentences together. His attempts to do voices was very poor and the whole thing felt like he was rushing to get through! Also most of the names were not pernounced correctly.

    Story was good just performance and Narrator was horrable also I like to read along with a book but thus is an abridged version so a lot of stuff was missing. All in all very disappointed .

    "too short"

    the story itself is ok, but its so short so the 2 storylines dont get much detail. Also the price is quiet high for the content.

    "Performance ruins it"

    Performance ruined the story. Reader rushed through the reading far too fast to enjoy it.

    "Good story, but..."

    The performer was lacking some fundamental Star Wars knowledge. Pronunciation was off on a number of key components.

    "Meets a forgotten high bar."

    As the standard for Star Wars authors & stories have fallen, this stands the test of time.

    Story
    "Great store line but with some problems."

    First the story line was great the problem I had was with the narrator he was unable to bring the story to life and because of that it didn't grasp my attention only during the action.
