When a Sample Works

I found Timothy Zahn's Behind-the-Scenes section to be interesting. The voice acting of the audiobook excerpt sounded good as well, but the constant interruptions by the otherwise interesting annotations made me grateful for this excerpt - because it's not a book I would want to purchase in audio. The print version is going in to my Wishlist. The audio is not.

Very interesting, but far too short!

Would you consider the audio edition of Free Excerpt: Star Wars: Heir to the Empire - Behind the Scenes to be better than the print version?

There is no print version (that I know of). I found it fascinating and could have easily listened to it for hours more. It's only 20 minutes long, at least an hour of content would have been great.

Fantastic but too short

What about Timothy Zahn and Betsy Mitchell ’s performance did you like?

It's great to hear the forward and the behind the scenes notes by Tim Zahn himself!

Give this a listen before getting the real thing

Any additional comments?

This is just a taste of the audio behind the scenes book which this is basically and annotated version of the star wars heir to the empire book done by the author it is very interesting and defiantly made me want to get the real thing because i was not sure how this would work in an audio format this showed how it can work with out being weird
