"Helping to propel the listener forward is the stereophonic sound of a jet engine zooming across the listener's hearing field, establishing effective breaks and transitions in the story." (AudioFile)
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.
This was the first Star Wars audiobook I had ever listening to... And for that I am glad.
With the indept story you can finally understand the bits that was missing from the movie, and with the extra sound effects on offer. You are basically feel like you are listening to a complete radio play with nothing missed out!!!
Also it is probably the one Star Wars production when you don't have to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy it.
Honest I lent it to my mother... who is not hot on the saga, but even she said it. The whole production of story, narrator and sound effects, was pretty good, and sucks you in.
I think that I wanted too much from this book. One reads, or listens to, a prose adaption of a film to get a deeper understanding of the story, the characters and the world which they inhabit. And one does some of that here, mostly about the thoughts and feelings of Jango and Bobba Fett, and some deleted scenes from the film feature here. But mostly one gets a very well written and excellently performed account of what in the film. Like I said, I think that I wanted too much.
It's still an excellent listen.
