Publisher's Summary

As the war between the Republic and the scattered remnants of the Empire continues, two children, the Jedi twins, will come into their powers in a galaxy on the brink of vast changes and challenges. In this time of turmoil and discovery, an extraordinary new Star Wars saga begins.

While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes - going from one danger to a far greater one.

On Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends, only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han himself.

    Story
    "An amazing book with a horrible reader."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    No


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kyp Durron


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anthony Heald’s performances?

    A definitive NO!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it made me wince in agony at the horrible reading and terrible impressions, the reader frequently miss-pronounced locations such as Corascant, Yavin and names like Mara Jade and more. Not to mention the style and flare which he uses to try and impersonate Han Solo is gaudy and horrible and nothing at all like that of the movies, it is obvious the reader has never even watched a single one of the Movies. and the impersonation of admiral Ackbar is absolutely HORRIBLE. whiny and high pitch is exactly opposite of the movies.


    Any additional comments?

    its sad to hear such a horrible reading of such a great book. and i hope they go through with a second recording with a better reader.

    Story
    "Has this narrator ever scene Star Wars?"

    I've never left a negative review before on anything it's not my style, but I'm only two chapters of this book and I cannot take this narrator. His character voices are great and he pronunciation of words very clearly BUT having just listened to the Thrawn series narrated by Marc Thompson, these audiobooks are difficult to listen to.

    Right off of the bat this narrator pronounces CORUSCANT wrong and it drives me crazy! Aside from the fact that his impersonation of Han Solo is completely wrong and he reads extremely fast. I am a huge Star Wars fan but I'm going to have a hard time listening to the rest of this book I might have to get the hard copy instead.

    "Need a different Narrator"
    What would have made Star Wars: The Jedi Academy Trilogy, Volume 1: Jedi Search better?

    A new narrator who pronounces the names correctly and makes the story interesting.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kevin J. Anderson before, how does this one compare?

    I have not, but if Anthony Heald is narrating I won't listen.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Heald?

    Marc Thompson, hands down

    "Story is okay. Narrator is annoying."

    I listen to these books at work and I decided to listen to every Star Wars novel in chronological order. I can honestly say this is the first narrator I've been annoyed by. He doesn't pronounce the names of places correctly, he made Han Solo sound like the biggest tool bag ever, he has suuuuper long pauses, and I can hear the spit in his mouth sometimes...I thought very seriously about skipping this book just because of him.
