The Rebels have taken the Imperial headquarters world of Coruscant, but their problems are far from over. A killer virus called Krytos is spreading among the population and fomenting a counter-revolution at the same time as the treason trial of Rebel hero Tycho Celchu. As the X-wing fighters scramble to save the rebellion, pilot Corran Horn, given up for dead in an "inescapable" prison, discovers an extraordinary power in himself, the power of the Force!

While I enjoy Anthony Heald in his movies... whoever directed him to read the majority of the voices in this book with a British / Scottish accent needs to have his head examined... Not only was this a bad choice (a couple would be fine - but damn near everyone is way overkill), but the accent itself - wow, just bad. All this coming from a NY born actor - if you want a EU accent - get someone from the EU to read it!
And then the abridging - again - Missing some major details from the book, almost to the point of a incomplete story. It just went way too far on this one.
Everlasting Entertainment Eternal
From this book, I'd say the SSD blasting out of Coruscant
See previous answer.
Absolutely! This isn't the first time I've listened to this book. Despite its being very abridged (as were most of the earlier Star Wars books), it's still most entertaining and portrayed all of the relevant parts of the story.
Despite what it reads in this ad, this particular book is NOT narrated by Anthony Heald, but by Henry Thomas (Elliott from E.T.), who also read the first two X-Wing titles. Heald took over with the 4th book, "The Bacta War".
Yes, I enjoyed reading (listening to) this audiobook. I am a Star Wars fan and the continuing story is really great to read.
The meeting at Alderan, this was the centre plot of the book and everything went wrong from this point. The dramatic moments all harked back to the meeting and it built towards the suspence of the story.
Where they discovered who the tratior was and dealt with him.
I couldn't put it down until I had heard the whole story.
I want to listen again. It was well written, and I want to see more of these books in the future.
