    "An excellent conclusion"

    As I said on the first book, "Wow", what s great story. Another example of why anything with Star wars and Marc Thompson is worth having. Get both books and listen back to back for the maximum benefit/enjoyment.

    This is definitely worth the point. Get it.

    "Star Wars Continues Its Stride"

    The pair of books kept me engaged as much as the first three. Zahn hit it dead on and, as always, Thompson's narrating takes you back to a galaxy a long time ago and far, far away.

    "Well worth purchasing!"

    Marc Thompson is a master reader! He brings Zahn's intricate plots and fascinating characters vividly yo life, with the help of John Williams's original scores and fun sound effects from the films!

    "Perfect"

    Definitely a good story. Absolutely worth your time.
    The narrator had a good way of telling the story, he really made it sound like he was there feeling their pain, joy, excitement etc.
    The story had a lot of key points and for the lack of a better word Frustrating points.
    You really wished to continue until you knew what happened.
    A good listening for all star wars fans though you should listen to the first book

    "A Brilliant conclusion to the Duology!"
    Where does Vision of the Future: Star Wars (The Hand of Thrawn) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Random House's Star Wars productions are always top notch and this delivers on all cylinders!
    This is by far the longest Star Wars novel i've read and the 3 part download emphasised this when i was revisiting the story in audio form.


    What other book might you compare Vision of the Future: Star Wars (The Hand of Thrawn) to, and why?

    The production level on these books is top notch, not only is the narration cleaned and crisp with very little sibilance.
    Utilising the Lucasfilm library of John Williams Star Wars soundtracks as well as the in galaxy sound effects really helps to immerse the listener in the galaxy.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Marc Thompsons' portrayal of Han Solo is very accurate and also kinda comical due to his grumpiness (Han's not Marcs!). Very apt
