Publisher's Summary

Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. 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. These refugees have turned to pillaging and plundering to survive - and they are in debt to a pirate armada, which will gladly ransom the princess to the vengeful Empire...if they find out her true identity.
Struggling with intense feelings of guilt, loyalty, and betrayal, Leia is determined to help her wayward kinspeople, even as Imperial forces are closing in on her own crippled ship. Trapped between lethal cutthroats and brutal oppressors, Leia and Han, along with Luke, Chewbacca, and a battle-ready crew, must defy death - or embrace it - to keep the rebellion alive.

Great Book, Adequate Narrator.

Where does Razor's Edge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have no earthly idea.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I can't due to my busy schedule.

Any additional comments?

Great Book, very entertaining, and brings a new light to the destruction of a certain planet and Leia Organa. I love the why they had written the characters Han and Leia, but their interactions seemed... odd and not in the odd way it should; uncomfortable, skirting around these feelings they've got, etc. No this just felt... well odd. Aside from that the characters were well written and the plot was interesting and drew you in but... the narrator isn't perfect.

Now I don't know if it's something to do with vocal depth or not but all of January LaVoy's men sounded like she was doing one of the those random deep voice impressions of someone. Again I'm not sure if it's just me or maybe the Narrator isn't the best choice for a female narrator but I don't see Marc's or Johnathan's female characters as those random high voiced interpretations. Maybe it's harder to make a deeper voice than a higher voice? I'm not sure.

In the end, though, i had fun with this book, it was interesting, it drew me in, and the overarching story was once you reach the end ties together. I will suggest this to any and all Star Wars fans!

Good book, but wrong choice of narrator

If you could sum up Razor's Edge in three words, what would they be?

Good book, but the Audiobook felt inconsistent with the usual high quality of Star Wars audiobooks.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Razor's Edge?

Overall, I loved the exploration of a time period which is often not dealt with in Star Wars novels. The personal struggles and guilt within Leia were well written.

Would you be willing to try another one of January LaVoy’s performances?

Probably not - this is the first audio book I have ever considered looking for a print version instead. The narrator's voice is pleasant, and the narration aspects were good - but when doing characters' dialogue, it was difficult to distinguish between characters. It really detracted from my ability to feel involved in the story. And all the men sounded as if it was an impression of Rosie O'Donnell after 40 cigarettes. For many books, I am sure she would be great, but it really didn't work here.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not especially, but that's fine. I like to break the books up and listen to them on my drive to work.
