  • ""Impressive! Most Impressive!""

    Overall

    Any Star Wars fan will know, the title of this review is a quote from 'The Empire Strikes Back', spoken by Darth Vader during his first battle with Luke Skywalker. \"Impressive\" just doesn't do this book justice though, it is utterly superb.

    The Jedi battle with Dooku on the separatist flagship, the deepening darkness on Coruscant and in The Republic, the rising fear within Anakin Skywalker, the twisted inner-workings of the minds of Count Dooku, Darth Sidious, and General Grievous....All these things (and more) feed your imagination, and open-up the Star Wars Universe, like never before.

    On top of this, the narration is masterful, almost an art, which brings the story to life in such a way, you could almost be there.

    Amazing book, and well worth buying. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and wil do so again, I have no doubt of that :-)

    After years of civil war, the Separatists have battered the already faltering Republic nearly to the point of collapse. On Coruscant, the Senate watches anxiously as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine aggressively strips away more and more constitutional liberties in the name of safeguarding the Republic.

  • "What A Difference A Book Makes!"

    Overall

    In a word, AMAZING!! Thoroughly enjoyable, from start to finish. You're listening for an hour, before you even get to where the movie begins, this should give you some idea of the depth of the storyline.

    The writing is excellent, and the narration adds to it immeasurably. Drama, excitement, and edge-of-your-seat action, right from the outset........superb stuff!

    I'm eagerly anticipating 'Episode III' now, if it's anywhere near as good as this, I'm in for a treat :-D

    A great book, and a definite 'must' for your collection.

    There is a great disturbance in the Force. From the sleek ships of the glimmering Coruscant skyscape to the lush gardens of pastoral Naboo, dissent is roiling. The Republic is failing, even under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, elected 10 years earlier to save the crumbling government. Separatists threaten war, and the Senate is hopelessly divided, unable to determine whether to raise an army for battle or keep the fragile peace.

  • "A Great Listen"

    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this, well worth buying. As with most books, this expands the storyline from the movie, and delves deeper into the thoughts of the characters, which definitely adds to the story.

    There was something that I found a little disappointing though. The Narrator pronounced Palpatine incorrectly, a minor point I know, but you'd think he may have checked the pronunciation of characters names, before he started reading ;-)

At last the saga that captured the imagination of millions turns back in time to reveal its cloaked origins, the start of a legend, the story of Star Wars.

    "The Film - Extended"

    Overall

    This is an outstanding dramatisation of the film, turning the original story into a 6-hour epic, full of new details and background that really adds to the story. If you're thinking of buying this, you've most likely seen the film - but if somehow you haven't, I would suggest that you need to see it in order to get the most out of this audio adventure. The sound design is fantastic, using musical scores and effects straight from the film. Mark Hamill reprises his role as Luke Skywalker and Anthony Daniels returns as C-3PO. Other lesser actors play the other characters, and while this takes some getting used to, after a while it seems perfectly natural. It would have been great to have the rest of the original cast (given that this was made originally in 1983), but several of the other actors are good sound-alikes.

    My only criticism is that Darth Vader doesn't feature as prominently in this adaptation as he does in the film. Also, some scenes would be difficult to follow by sound alone unless a listener had already seen the movie and could visualize the action once more.

    If you consider yourself a Star Wars expert, you'll enjoy the extra scenes of Luke Skywalker with his friends on Tatooine, the schemes of Grand Moff Tarkin as he plans to use the Death Star to seize power from the Emperor and many more besides. If you're a casual fan, you'll simply enjoy being whisked along by the breathtaking pace of an fine epic sci-fi romp that is entertaining to the last. Well worth your money; great value for an Audible credit.

  • "A good crime caper!"

    0 of 1 helpful votes
    Where does Scoundrels: Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks quite high up against some of the other audiobooks I've listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scoundrels: Star Wars?

    The ending has a fantastic and unlikely twist which makes you smile.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This compares very well with his other work, good characterisation although with so many it can get confusing, especially if you take an extended break from the book.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Han Solo puts Danny Ocean to shame in this crime caper with a twist......


    Any additional comments?

    Very good and suprising book where the plot constantly changes and evolves with a great if suprising ending.

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that's left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can't quite remember, yet can't entirely forget.

Until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy - and exterminate the Jedi.

    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

    The tale of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and the fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker has become modern myth, an epic tragedy of the corruption of a young man in love into darkness, the rise of evil, and the power of good triumphing in the end. But it didn't start out that way. In this thorough account of one of cinema's most lasting works, Michael Kaminski presents the true history of how Star Wars was written, from its beginnings as a science fiction fairy tale to its development over three decades into the epic we now know, chronicling the methods, techniques, thought processes, and struggles of its creator.

    Hot on the heels of the New York Times bestseller William Shakespeare's Star Wars comes the next two installments of the original trilogy: William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back and William Shakespeare's The Jed Doth Return. Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter. These two plays offer essential listening for all ages.

    When the Empire threatens the galaxy's new hope, will Han, Luke, and Leia become its last chance? When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo - something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

    But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she's determined to stay behind enemy lines.

    It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy's worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.

    The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn.

    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

    John says: "Verily; A great reteling."

So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star.
