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.

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.

This must be an abridged version

Be careful the other Thrawn trilogy books I listened to were by random house audio and over 10 hrs in length. this audio book is only 3 hrs long.

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.

abridged books are awful

I know some don't mind them but truncated audiobooks drive me nuts. it's like an extended description from the back cover, not a story.

Good story that needed better Narrator

I loved the first book and narration, the 2nd book wasn’t a good story and narration wasn’t great. Anthony Daniels iconic voice of 3PO is always great, but doesn’t translate to other characters. This book would’ve been a lot better with a different narrator.

That narrator sure does a great C-3PO

An abridged book is what it is, and some may not like. But for sure that narrator does an excellent C-3PO!

Not what it could have been

This was a terrible ending to what has been a great story. Also, the narrator on this book was different than the previous 2 and he kinda sucked a lot.

Really took me back.

On Christmas as a kid, my dad got me a cassette tape off this. I played it every night until one of the cassettes broke. After a while, the other cassette broke. for years I have been dying to find the exact audiobook read by the voice actor of C-3PO. only place I could find it was here. it's still as beautiful as the day I lost it.

Courskant

The story is good, but the narrator. I really don't like. Words like coruscant, chimaera are pronounce oddly.
I hope that they make new edition out of this and Mark Thompson will also read the last one.

A great book but needs updating

As always, Timothy Zahn lays out a great story. My only issue is that after 20+ years I feel it needs a rewrite. So many details about thrawn don’t correlate and it needs to be read by Mark Thompson and the team behind the latest Thrawn books
Anthony Daniels does a good job but having listened to the rest of the Thrawn books I find myself disappointed at this edition now.

Could have been better

Anthony Daniels' pronunciation of well established names is strange. For the other two books in the Thrawn trilogy, I recommend Marc Thompson's narration instead.

Voice actor changed

The new voice actor made everything sound like 7 yo kids or a bunxh of senile reptilians screaming at each other. Random house productions were better.
