Publisher's Summary

The embattled Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor's secret fortress: clone soldiers.

As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack against the empire. Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins.

Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn's command, the New Republic has one last hope: sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the stronghold that houses Thrawn's terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C'baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he has already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.

    "Anthony Daniels KILLS it again"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    As with book 2, I enjoy Timothy Zahn's writing and I feel he very much captures the flavor of the Star Wars universe. Anthony Daniels narration was in my opinion nothing short of terrible. The strange inflections and tones attributed to characters was laughable and painful in spots (the way he portrays Joruus C'Baoth was horrendous). Also to add his pronunciations (such as CHIMERA being pronounced Ki-MOO-rah) really took away from the book. It was rather painful to get through, but I wanted to finish out the trilogy.<br/><br/>Also as with book 2 the abridgement was a bit choppy, but in this book it really felt like there were huge gaps left in the story that made it seem inplausible.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Timothy Zahn again?

    Yes


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

    Absolutely not.

    "Love the book, dislike the abridged part"

    This trilogy by Zahn is what brought Star Wars back into our collective conscience. Why then are his audio books abridged? I love the story, and I love being able to listen to it on my iPod at the gym, but slightly disappointed in not being able to listen to the entire work as Zahn originally penned it. It's still a good listen, even though it leaves out half the book. It would be awesome though, if there were radio drama style, unabridged, versions of his books.

    "Good, but why waste time creating abridged books?"

    The story is ok and well performed, but I just don't understand why publishers waste time creating abridged books. By not needing to use your eyes, your reading time is greatly expanded. Abridging is a travesty to begin with - even made worst by doing it on this format...and then not even offering the unabridged version. I don't see how any abridged book can get higher than a mediocre rating.

    "Narration is terrible."

    I made the mistake of buying this audiobook narrated by Anthony Daniels and couldn't even bear listening to two chapters. Do yourself a favor and buy the audiobook narrated by Marc Thompson.

    "Wonderful conclusion to the best Star Wars universe fiction"

    Timothy Zahn did a tremendous job of writing sequels to the original three Star Wars movies, managing to revisit characters we already knew whilst doing them justice. I loved this trilogy as a child and revisiting it in adulthood I still find that it stands above the other books written in the Star Wars universe. I only regret that these were not adapted into films shortly after they were written instead of the prequel films that were made. This recording, with its wonderful narration and Star Wars music and effects remains my favourite, despite the fact that I usually opt for unabridged audiobooks where possible.

    "Horrible Narrator"

    Do yourself a favor, get all the versions narrated by Marc Thompson instead. I was unable to concentrate on the story and the narrator changed up his barely in character voices so it was impossible to tell who was talking.

    "Abridged is better"

    I don't know why people complain about the abridged versions... There's less repetitively boring detail, and it flows better, almost like you are watching a Star Wars movie.

    "Great story, bad narration."

    Just a poor narration of a great story by Timothy Zahn. Anthony Daniels uses poor inflection at times, mispronounces many names of characters and places, and used some annoying voices for some of the main characters. I'm definitely going to steer clear of future audiobooks narrated by Anthony Daniels.

    "Narrator ruins it"

    Great story but 3PO reduces the characters to childlike representations of good and evil using silly voices. Imperials sinister, Rebels bold and strong and weirdly all smugglers are cockneys in this universe. Shows total lack of understanding for what was a great book. Denis Lawson (Wedge) much better in book 1.

    "Not bad but too much missing"

    While I do love this trilogy, there's so much of the plot missing in this abridged version that it doesn't do the original any kind of justice. Anthony Daniels does a good job with the material he has but the occasional music and sound effects are more annoying than helpful in my opinion.

    "Perfectly captures the spirit of Star Wars"

    This series perfectly captures the spirit of the original Star Wars movies, while at the same time introducing a host of new, interesting characters, exciting battles and plot twists. It is an abridged version of the story, but I still really enjoyed it. Anthony Daniels (C-3PO from the movies) gives an enjoyable performance and really makes the story come alive. These stories could easily have been the sequels to the movies and are some of the best Star Wars stories that I have experienced, even though they are no longer 'official canon'. Well worth a read/listen if you are a fan of the movies.
