Though Han Solo has thrilled Star Wars fans for decades, the notorious wisecracking scoundrel was chasing adventure and dodging trouble long before he walked into the cantina at Mos Eisley spaceport. Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he’s trapped in a life of poverty and crime - and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang - reaching the distant stars seems impossible.

This is a great adaptation of the movie. It gives real depth too the characters and the story. fans of the film will not be disappointed with the performance. the only let down is the sound of Chewbacca. instead of using sound bites from the films the narrator does a poor imitation. A minor for an otherwise good job.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Grey Ghost by Clive Cussler and Robin Burcell, read by Scott Brick. In 1906, a groundbreaking Rolls-Royce prototype known as the Grey Ghost vanishes from the streets of Manchester, England, and it is only the lucky intervention of an American detective named Isaac Bell that prevents it from being lost forever. Not even he can save the good name of Marcus Peyton, however, the man wrongly blamed for the theft, and more than a hundred years later, it is his grandson who turns to Sam and Remi Fargo to help prove his grandfather's innocence.

as usual, this is another example of cusslers ability to write a can't stop listening tale. I prefer when the Fargo are looking for ancient treasures but the link to Sam's family and a British one at that, makes it compelling listening.

An ancient starship discovered... An eternal enemy revealed... An impossible mission to save humankind. The Goliath has been discovered, the first of its secrets revealed. Now the race is on for Captain Mitchell Williams and his crew to return to Liberty and recover Origin's lost memories before the enemy can complete their violent conquest. It's a mission with a near-zero chance of success. A mission that only the Riggers would be crazy enough to accept - and skilled enough to survive.
