Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command

Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn's command, the Republic has one last hope: sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn's terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C'baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

Publisher's Summary

The embattled Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor's secret fortress: clone soldiers. As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack against the empire, while Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins.

Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn's command, the Republic has one last hope: sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn's terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C'baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

    "UNABRIDGED! Finally hear it all."

    We finally get to hear the entirety of The Thrawn Trilogy. This book was well produced, Marc Thompson did a great job as normal. If you've made it this far in the Trilogy you won't be disappointed.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. It was well thought up until the randomness of the ending. It's still a great Star Wars read.

    Story
    "Thrawn trilogy--three credits well spent!!"

    The narrator--wow, was there really only one!--made each voice so distinctive, expressive, and believable, even for someone like me who has watched the original movies so many times. I tried reading the trilogy because my daughter loved it so, but I kept bogging down and only got about half through this book. When all three came out in unabridged form I got them. What seemed a little hokey and very hard to follow in print came alive in these audiobooks. The story really was great. It was like having those other three installments to the 9-movie series once talked about. It really was as good as a movie. Truly five stars in every way--the story, the narration, and the production quality.

    "Great conclusion to a great series"

    This whole trilogy is written like Star Wars should be written, and it ends in classic Star Wars fashion.

    "Fitting end to a great trilogy!"
    Where does Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was one of the best! I love the fact that they have started doing unabridged versions of the older (and in my opinion, better) Star Wars books.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    All of his characters are great!

    Story
    "The Triology that launched the expanded universe"
    What did you love best about Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, Book 3: The Last Command?

    The book captured the essence of the movies but continued the development of the characters and rebel alliance to a reasonable standard. Luke is still learning what it means to be a Jedi Knight and what responsibilities that go with it, while trying to figure out where and how to begin rebuilding the Jedi. The New Republic is on shaky grounds of establishing a fair legitmate multi-species governing body strong enough to stand in the absense of the Empire and against the threat of remaining Imperial leaders with a divided forum.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mara Jade. An imposing and well trained character with great potential in the Force, Mara is battling an internal struggle to realise her past in a different light than all that she once belived. Forced into an allience with the person she most wants dead, she still finds the strength to determine her own destiny and find a new place in the galaxy.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Absolutly fantastic. Marc Thompson reads each character different so you can follow easily and finds the perfect imflections that you can believe you're listening to Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and others. The use of music and soundeffects from the movies also adds to the entertainment.


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

    Where Garm Bel Iblis points out to Leia that the leader of the New Republic is so afraid of trusting the lives of those she was appionted to govern to less compentent people, she refuses to hand over such responisbilities to anyone she doesn't have absolute faith in.

    I like my horror, techno-thrillers, and science fiction. Which is why Jurassic Park and The Lost World are 2 of my favorite books ever!

    "The Force Will Be With Us, Always..."

    The Thrawn Trilogy comes to a close in The Last Command, and I wish it didn't have to end.
    If you've invested your time on the first 2 audiobooks, you won't want to miss this one! The story draws to a very satisfying conclusion, and for a Star Wars fan like myself, it's FUN! The sound effects, the sweeping Star Wars music of John Williams, and Chewbacca starring as himself! I generally don't care for music or sound effects in an audiobook, because it can be distracting. In this case, I love it! And Marc Thompson can throw a great voice on every character you put in front of him, rock solid performance!
    P.S. Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy, anyone? I'd drop a credit or 3! Let's hope Marc Thompson will continue with an unabridged performance of the next series.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.
