Publisher's Summary

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. It is a stalemate that once broken, could lead to galactic chaos.

Critic Reviews

"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)

What A Difference A Book Makes!

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.
