Publisher's Summary

In barren desert lands and seedy spaceports...in vast underwater cities and in the blackest depths of space...unfolds a tale of good and evil, of myth and magic, of innocence and power. At last the saga that captures the imagination of millions turns back in time to reveal its cloaked origins - the start of a legend - the story of Star Wars. Based on the screenplay by George Lucas, this novel by master storyteller Terry Brooks probes the depths of one of the greatest tales of our time, providing rich detail and insight into the minds and motives of the characters - and shedding bold new light on Lucas' brilliant creation.

This being my first audio book, at the age of nine

This book is pure Nostalgia for me. I really enjoyed the sound effects, and the characters. I listen to this book on cassettes at least 15 times as a kid. Best part ever is while Anakin was in the races. I found those moments to be more memorable than the movies play on things. 5 stars all around

Couldn't get past the guy voicing Jar-Jar Binks

I'm a fan of the movies and the books. I don't mind Jar Jar Binks but this guy's interpretation of him is all the more annoying

Trash

As bad as the movie if you can believe that is possible. It was basically the screen play read out loud. I don’t think you can consider it a novel.

Nothing New

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, I was hoping for some new tidbits of information.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was lack luster.
