Kelly Marie Tran did a fantastic job!

The story gave a descriptive and compelling backstory of the heroes of the bomber group that died defending the remnants of the Resistance against the bolstered First Order.

Filler

Not the best story in the current crop of Star Wars books but certainly not the worst. Filled in some of the back story on the bombers in last Jedi but it didn’t really go anywhere. Worth picking up if you’re a completionist but not if you’re a casual fan

this book is awesome!!!!

I love this book the audiobook!!!! I think it is really good and lends a lot more depth to Rose's character. The story wasn't SUPER complex, but it worked for me thematically. It is more character driven anyways. I think this story is a must read and will make you appreciate all of Rose's parts in the film more and explains a lot that is only briefly touched on. Outside of Rose and Paige, most of the characters don't really have a lot of depth or distinguishing features. I really liked Reeve Panzoro, though.

I also think Kelly Marie Tran did a REALLY good job reading the story. it made me smile to have a familiar voice reading, and hearing Rose's story from "Rose herself" is amazing. I also really like how this audiobook incorporates music and sound effects. it makes it even more exciting and enhances the emotional feeling of the book.

I definitely recommend this book and think it is a must read / listen if you like Star Wars The Lsst Jedi and Rose tico :)

Story was boring and voices were non existent.

Having actors read audiobooks can habr mixed results. I really liked Ashley Ekstein in Ahsoka because that story was told almost exclusively from Ashokas voice or thoughts so having the voice of Ahsoka read everything was actually a positive. I had mixed feelings about Janina Gavankar in Inferno squad because she could habe showed more range but there was at least some differentiation between the voices of the characters. Here, the method didn't work at all. Kelly Marie Tran voiced Rose great but every other character sounded exactly the same. There was one conversation between Rose and Leia that I couldn't even follow cause they were exactly the same voice. On top of that issue the story was pretty boring even for a young reader books whuch Star Wars generally nails.

Decent Into for Rose

The story was a decent intro for Rose and her sister. It also helped you get to know some of the Characters seen in Last Jedi. Over all a good story but not one I would listen to more than once.

Nice new story to support The Last Jedi movie

A very nice story to give more background for a new character in The Last Jedi. I thoroughly enjoyed Kelly's reading of this story. I know this story won't be for everyone but if you are looking for a story that brings you a better understanding of one of the best new characters in the Star Wars universe, this story delivers.

Not much here

Pretty boring. Most of the dialogue was monotone, the story was dull, and the reader didn't add anything to the characters.

A waste of time

I’m done falling for the Star Wars tie in scam. The stories are placeholders. In some cases they contain some context that should actually be in the films. This novel does nothing to build up a character who is poorly written in the film.

It gives us more about Rose Tico.

This story takes place during the events of the Force Awakens. While it is interesting, it doesn't really give me more insight into who Rose Tico is or why she is important.
