Description

As the war between the Republic and the scattered remnants of the Empire continues, two children, the Jedi twins, will come into their powers in a galaxy on the brink of vast changes and challenges. In this time of turmoil and discovery, an extraordinary new Star Wars saga begins.

While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes - going from one danger to a far greater one.

On Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends, only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han himself.

Abridged - Ugh

What disappointed you about Star Wars?

This was the first abridged audiobook that I'd ever listened to. Never again. The story felt very disjointed and choppy. There was clearly more to be told, but I wasn't privy to it through this retelling of the story. It was disappointing overall, and I will never buy another abridged audiobook again.

Bad way to ruin a good book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Heald?

Marc Tompson
The guy has awesome voices that make the story WAY more enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

I absolutely hated the narrator.

I guess i was spoiled the last few books i listened to were read by Marc Tompson.\

He should read EVERY Star Wars book.

Seriously.

has he even seen star wars?

the story wasn't bad but the narrator sounds like he's never seen the movies. pronouncing almost every name incorrectly made it hard to love. not only that but it was read so fast I lost track of the story a few times.

Great book, but sloppily abridged.

What disappointed you about Star Wars?

The abridgement sounded like it was SO compressed. I know that that is the point, but it took SO much away from the story.

What did you like best about this story?

This series of books is one of the best from the Star Wars cannon.

Would you be willing to try another one of Anthony Heald’s performances?

It depends. This Narrator wasn't too good with this title, but I'd be willing to give him another try I guess.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars?

Nothing. I would have added a ton more. Basically, I was expecting this to be more like the book. Other abridgements I have listened too have basically turned a full book into a 2 hour version, but this was not the case here. It was butchered.

Any additional comments?

Don't Listen to it. Read it. Much better. Don't want to? Forget about it. Just not worth it in this case. Try another series.

annoying

What disappointed you about Star Wars?

the voice of the narrator was very different from the other star wars books i have gotten from audible. The way Anthony Heald does the voices and reads the book and the pronouncement of names makes me think that he has never seen a starwars movie in his life. it was very difficult to listen to and not be distracted by the performance. I nearly turned it off after the first 10 minutes. It is like John Lovitz is reading star wars.

Disappointing

Yep, I'm that jerk that is going to review a book after the first 10 minutes. I would wait, but I'm done with it. I just revived my interest in Star Wars by re-upping my Old Republic game subscription and read the Thrawn Trilogy expertly narrated by Marc Thompson. His voice acting was exception and the story was compelling. I devoured them and moved onto the next books (chronologically according to Wookiepedia) in the series.
And I'm heart broken. Mr Anderson has made Han Solo sound like an idiot with the line "before they turn us into Space Meat!".. I almost gave up right there. But Anthony Heald, whose voice is remarkable, is now mispronouncing important names (Han and Corruscant both were teeth grindingly annoying).

So yeah, 10 minutes in and I give up. It is the first time in 6 years that I've been so disppointed by both the narrator and the story that I haven't just looked at the good and ignored (or grimaced thru) the bad. I doubt I will do any of the other Star Wars novels except those that have the Zahn / Thompson combo.

Great story, but narrator ruins it for me

What did you like best about Star Wars: The Jedi Academy Trilogy, Volume 1: Jedi Search? What did you like least?

Great story, but bad narration with multiple mispronunciations. Coruscant is pronounced "CorusKant", Han Solo sounds like a 1940's gangster, and Wedge Antilles sounds like Scotty from Star Trek. Very distracting after hearing the amazing Mark Thompson in so many great readings.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Luke Skywalker

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Heald?

Mark Thompson! PLEASE!

Do you think Star Wars: The Jedi Academy Trilogy, Volume 1: Jedi Search needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It already has one

What happened?

Jarring pacing, mispronounciations, bad character voices, and static sounds. This was just in the first chapter.
