The War in Star Wars

Where does Battlefront: Twilight Company rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Of the books I've listened to this one is one of the best. It takes an approach to Star Wars that most over look and did it quite well.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that this was from the common soldiers perspective and showed you what being a Rebel really means to those that are fighting in the over all war agents the Empire.

Which scene was your favorite?

Darth Vader entering Echo Base, I'm not going to spoil it, lets just say as the one time you see a Force user this was amazingly well done

This is a star wars junkie bucket list dream book

Where does Battlefront: Twilight Company rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love most of the Star Wars books..minus another new book that came out recently and should of been burned along with Jar Jar. However, with that said, this book is very well done and keeps you involved the whole way through...like a good Star Wars book should do.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were all pretty good.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes..great

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"In the absence of the Jedi,...how many will rise to take a stand? How many will fall?"

Any additional comments?

keep them coming

Best new canon book so far

This is by far the best book in the new cannon with lords of the sith coming in second. The author worked on the old republic so it doesn't surprise me that this was much better across the board especially compared to that bush league garbage wendig put out. Honestly this is the first of the new books that I wasn't looking at the time remaining and wishing it would. My ONLY complaint (if you even want to call it that) is that the narrator does this robotic nick cage voice for the chapter headings. I thought it was pretty funny

Meh... good but I didn't really get into it.

It was a good story but just didn't hook me in. I listen at work and I found myself zoning in and out of the story. Had to start it over at one point because I felt like I was missing too much.

A great military themed novel

If you could sum up Battlefront: Twilight Company in three words, what would they be?

Excellent military thriller

What did you like best about this story?

The plotline mostly

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene with the governor executing several Imperial officers in her own house.

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

Can't say there was.

Any additional comments?

A must-have I feel for any Star Wars fan, even if they may not like it.

Interesting

This was filled with action. Not enough twist and gut wrenching turns as the previous novels. You actually hear another side to the story, based from the front lines point of view. Overall, I can say this is a pretty good listen.

Amateur hour on this one

Music and constant sound effects through out. Very difficult to listen with the other sounds. Who were the producers 14 year olds?

Well, it's Star Wars... But it left me begging for more.

Having read all or nearly all of the new canon books, I would have to say Battlefront: Twilight Company is my least favorite. The action was solid, the dialogue was plentiful, but I felt no connection or empathy for the squad. This isn't an impossible feat either, it was executed perfectly in the Stackpole/Allston (especially Allston, RIP) X-Wing series. Characters could have, and should have been more fleshed out. Nearly everyone seemed bitter and unapproachable.

The narrator's performance was predictable, that is to say excellent, as I'm familiar with Davis' past works in the SW universe. He delivered solid inflection, and the acting was superb, especially when delivering feelings of regret, sadness, nervousness and pain.

The Hoth scene was the most tense and exciting. I thought the author did a good job of 'humanizing' the Rebels and Imperials, rising up the Rebels to a certain level of ruthlessness and bringing the Imperials down from an 'inherently evil' standpoint.

Overall I felt the story was weak and lazy, but still entertaining.

It's an OK story....

This was hard to get though.

The story is slow and mundane and I could only listen in small snippets. I didn't care about any of the characters and only got exited when the story intersected with events we know in the films. It's a cool exercise at looking at the military aspect of Star Wars but it would work better as a live action show/movie.

Amazing!

I wasn't sure how I was going to like a Star Wars book that seemed to take a more wars approach, leaving behind some of the more sci-fi elements. After listening in glad I didn't let that hesitation stop me from enjoying, because it was amazing! I could barely stop listening and wouldn't have minded if it was another 10 hours long!

Slow start, but worth persevering!

First few chapters were hard to get through, characters hard to follow, but the story picks up and runs with a core of characters which is easier to follow!!

Hard to follow.

I really struggled getting into this because the battles are underwhelming and very short, also it keeps swapping between twilight company and then we are following some stormtrooper cadet, battalion. It doesn’t mention your following which group until 1 min or so into the chapter. Only character I am able to follow is Namir, because he is the main protagonist.

Not bad but not anything incredible.

while the usual sounds effects etc are good the story seems a little slow and the narrator seems to struggle doing female voices.

Horrible book....

horrible book, boring as all he'll, story sucked just as much as the boring characters. Lots of words but all filler and did nothing doe the story, so dissapointed in this, so much potential for a fun story... massive fail. Reading performance was A+ as usual though, sounded great, all issues are with the writing and story.

Great game, Not so great book

I had some reservations about this book. As I began, I did my best to put that reservation aside, but I found it hard to get into the narrative. The storyline seemed to be all over the place and didn't flow very well. It felt not only disjointed but also uninteresting. I also found it hard to track different characters' storylines, but maybe I'm overthinking the narrative.
The difference between regulations and the reality of war seemed to be a big theme. This aspect was the most developed part of the overall story and reminded me of many of my world wars classes. However, I felt like I really didn't care that much. I didn't connect with the characters, and that was the biggest downfall for me.
I'm not sure what they were going for here. Who is the intended audience? Because although I live the video game, I also love books, and this book just fell short. In saying that, it's not terrible, and the action scenes were written quite well. I loved it when they got to the Battle of Hoth. But these moments of joy were brief.
