More of an adult adventure than I expected, but not in a bad way. The story was captivating and I was tempted to fight sleep to finish it. The performance was fantastic and the characters and world were remarkable. It’s definitely worth the read and listen.

Star Wars: Thrawn was already a great book with a fantastic story. However, the reading by Marc Thompson truly deserves more than a mere five-star rating. Thompson's variety of voices and Zahn's excellent writing style draw you into the world in a manner nostalgic for some and new for others. If Star Wars is your thing, or even if it isn't, this book is well worth the read and even more well worth the listen. Honestly, this book needs to be a movie, forget Boba Fett and give us Mitth'raw'nuruodo.
