Publisher's Summary

As the Jedi and the Republic focus on internal struggles, a new threat surfaces beyond the farthest reaches of the Outer Rim. An enemy appears from outside known space, bearing weapons and technology unlike anything New Republic scientists have ever seen. Suddenly, Luke, Mara, Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca, along with their children, are thrust again into battle, to defend the freedom so many have fought and died for. But this time, all their courage, sacrifice, and even the power of the Force itself, may not be enough.

    Story
    "Anthony Heald's reading is slow torture."
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Heald?

    Marc Thompson is the only one who should be narrating the Star Wars books. His descriptions and the emotion he puts into his reading makes you feel it as if you are there.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to Anthony Heald's narration is painful. The combination of his horrible accents, and the disgusting sounds that come from the inside of his mouth (clicking and sloshing saliva), I cringe when I listen to him.

    Audible, please look into remaking all of the abridged Star Wars books. They all need to be unabridged with the polish of the Fate of the Jedi series. I listened to that entire 9 book series in three weeks.

    Story
    "A good book ruined by bad narration."
    What would have made Star Wars better?

    I've read this book in paperback before, and rather enjoyed the story. There is certainly nothing wrong with the book itself, as I was excited to listen to it this time to relive the memories. But the narrator, Anthony Heald, has a terrible performance in this book, not putting any effort into the characters' voices and making terrible sounds with his mouth, as well as reading at a very awkward pace. Not having him try and match the characters' voices in the films was okay, but the pace of reading in this book was so clumsy that I couldn't wait to get through it, so I could find a book with a better narrator. The timing in several of the sentences he reads totally changes the mood and feel of the story, and ruins some of the most emotional parts in Star Wars novel history. Save your money or credits, this narrator ruins a great story.


    What didn’t you like about Anthony Heald’s performance?

    Pace of reading was too fast many times, and too slow in all the wrong parts. Reader didn't bother to even try mimicking character voices. Reader smacks mouth in annoying and awkward clicking sounds.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars?

    I would have cut Anthony Heald and given the part to Marc Thompson.


    Any additional comments?

    These older books would be nice to have redone with the quality of later books narrated by Marc Thompson. I listened to those in a matter of weeks, and would gladly listen to more if they were as well performed by those later Random House Audio presentations.

    "a great set of books butchered"

    the narrator was awful and the abridged version of this set leaves out vital information and stoy content.

    "To much left out"

    There is so much detail that was left out. It's really a shame this is such a great book.

    Story
    "What even happened?"

    I could not follow how everything could escalate so fast. And having a character sacrificed in such an unimportant event? Really? And how could such an advanced society not realize that their moon was going to collide with their planet? It seriously took Han to deduce that outcome to get planetary evacuation started?!

    "No more abridged."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I had read that this book was one of the Star Wars books that had key points in the progression of the series. But in abridged form, it jumped around with obvious gaps. If there was something interesting, I missed it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing abridged.

    "Disappointing."

    I had high hopes for this book, and discovered less than an hour in that they skipped enormous portions of the book for some reason. I've read the paperback before, and there were massive gaps and changes in the story for this audio version. 80% of the action at Lando's Folly is missing. Disappointing.

    It's ok. It's only three hours so it's a good filler between other books.

    "LOVE THE STORY--BUT"

    The story of Star Wars will always be a major part of my life. However, I truly miss Mark Thompson as the narrator. Mark has the perfect skill (e.g. voice) set required to keep listeners glued to the story. Nevertheless, I will purchase remaining books of this story and enjoy them.
