Publisher's Summary

He is Boba Fett, the most feared and successful bounty hunter in the galaxy, and even the most hardened criminals tremble at his name. Now he faces the deadliest challenge of his infamous career: an all-out war against his most dangerous enemies.

As the Rebellion gathers force, Prince Xizor proposes a cunning plan to the Emperor and Darth Vader: smash the power of the Bounty Hunters Guild by turning its members against each other. Only the strongest and most ruthless will survive, and they can be used against the Rebellion. It's a job for the fiercely independent Boba Fett, who jumps at the chance to destroy his rivals. But Fett soon realizes the murderous factions, criminal conspiracies, and the evil at the Empire's dark heart. Boba Fett has always finished first. And in this game, anything less is death.

Disapointing

What would have made Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter, Book 1: The Mandalorian Armor better?

The book needed to be longer than 2hrs.
Although the voice variation was appreciated, it became a little bit annoying.

What will your next listen be?

Darth Bane - Destiny of Evil

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice animation was really annoying and sometimes difficult to understand.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The storyline had much more potential but just didn't elaborate enough to make it a great listen..

Abridged audiobooks are the terrible

The story was ok. I guess. It’s hard to tell since it’s abridged. I really don’t like Anthony’s “range” of voices.

Filling in the Gaps

Although I am a big fan of Star Wars, I have not read all the books, comics etc. So there is alot of back story to discover. Boba Fett is one of the best characters. Even delivering a serious appearence in the Legacy of the Force series (which I highly recommend), The Bounty Hunter series is a fantastic addition to my library. Most of the story spread across the New Hope and Return of the Jedi timeline.

The character development, and narration of the book is fantastic.

Boba Fett kicks a$$

It’s not a bad story, I read the book back in 98; and I feel that there is a lot left out of this story. Like when Boba Fett is in the sarlacc and talks to the Jedi that’s been digesting in the stomach for a thousand year And how he escaped using a lightsaber, fuel from his jet pack and some grenades to make a hole in the sarlacc.

Not the whole book

I missed a big chunk of info between the chapters. Hate abridged versions of books.

Very poor narration

The story seems OK, but I couldn't make it more than a chapter with the poor narration. The women sound ridiculous and Darth Vader sounds like a character from a Star Wars mockery.

Underrated Gem

What a phenomenal story, Jeter does a great job of world building and meeting the expectations of fans’ beloved anti hero. All the twists and turns and political machinations are thoroughly developed and feel real without Fett seeming too invincible. I would highly recommend to even casual Star Wars fans.

Classic Star Wars storytelling!

I wore out the cassette tape of this audiobook series I had back in the day, and the CD version was stolen. Audible was the obvious next step... this trilogy is one of the best. Boba Fett is alive!

Nothing happened...

The entire book was talking about how cool boba fett was, while boba fett did literally nothing of note, in fact the only thing that happened was a guy found boba fett at the start. Then the rest was different people talking about how cool he was. If he's so cool make him do something
