    Story
    "Anthony Heald's reading is slow torture."
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Heald?

    Marc Thompson is the only one who should be narrating the Star Wars books. His descriptions and the emotion he puts into his reading makes you feel it as if you are there.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to Anthony Heald's narration is painful. The combination of his horrible accents, and the disgusting sounds that come from the inside of his mouth (clicking and sloshing saliva), I cringe when I listen to him.

    Audible, please look into remaking all of the abridged Star Wars books. They all need to be unabridged with the polish of the Fate of the Jedi series. I listened to that entire 9 book series in three weeks.

    Story
    "A good book ruined by bad narration."
    What would have made Star Wars better?

    I've read this book in paperback before, and rather enjoyed the story. There is certainly nothing wrong with the book itself, as I was excited to listen to it this time to relive the memories. But the narrator, Anthony Heald, has a terrible performance in this book, not putting any effort into the characters' voices and making terrible sounds with his mouth, as well as reading at a very awkward pace. Not having him try and match the characters' voices in the films was okay, but the pace of reading in this book was so clumsy that I couldn't wait to get through it, so I could find a book with a better narrator. The timing in several of the sentences he reads totally changes the mood and feel of the story, and ruins some of the most emotional parts in Star Wars novel history. Save your money or credits, this narrator ruins a great story.


    What didn’t you like about Anthony Heald’s performance?

    Pace of reading was too fast many times, and too slow in all the wrong parts. Reader didn't bother to even try mimicking character voices. Reader smacks mouth in annoying and awkward clicking sounds.


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

    I would have cut Anthony Heald and given the part to Marc Thompson.


    Any additional comments?

    These older books would be nice to have redone with the quality of later books narrated by Marc Thompson. I listened to those in a matter of weeks, and would gladly listen to more if they were as well performed by those later Random House Audio presentations.

    "a great set of books butchered"

    the narrator was awful and the abridged version of this set leaves out vital information and stoy content.

    "No more abridged."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I had read that this book was one of the Star Wars books that had key points in the progression of the series. But in abridged form, it jumped around with obvious gaps. If there was something interesting, I missed it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing abridged.

    "What even happened?"

    I could not follow how everything could escalate so fast. And having a character sacrificed in such an unimportant event? Really? And how could such an advanced society not realize that their moon was going to collide with their planet? It seriously took Han to deduce that outcome to get planetary evacuation started?!

    "decent narrator, abridged seems to be castrated"

    the abridged version skims too.many details and leaves you constantly wondering how certain events happen or why more.often than not, I felt almost cheated by the experience.

    "horribly abridged"

    I love this series on Hard copy, so I was excited to have the first one as an audio book during a long trip I was taking. I was extremely dissapointed with it, however, because it has been so mangled by editing. ths story has many points where it skips major plot points, but then refers to them later as if they had still happened. this ends up creating several points that range from confusing to nonsensical. the narration was fair, though the voices were odd at times.

    I'd stay away from this audio book if I were you

    "Narration is unbearable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A deaf person might enjoy the performance more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Seemed like an interesting story. Might try reading the series instead.


    What didn’t you like about Anthony Heald’s performance?

    The timing, inflection and voices were completely off.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All of the above. Anger. Sadness. Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I will not be buying any more of the audiobooks in this series due to the horrible narration. The story seemed interesting but I could not get past the narration. Would love to hear it with a different narrator.

    "R. A. Salvatore is better at Fantasy."

    I like R. A. Salvatore's fantasy work, but I could not get into this tale. Sorry.
