Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Michael A. Stackpole presents a stirring new tale set in the Star Wars universe: the dramatic story of a heroic X-wing pilot on the razor's edge between the Force and the dark side.
Corran Horn has distinguished himself as one of the best and brightest of Rogue Squadron's elite fighting force. Then his wife, Mirax, vanishes on a covert mission for the New Republic, and Corran vows to find her. To do so, he knows he must develop the latent Force powers inherited from his grandfather, a legendary Jedi hero. He joins Luke Skywalker's famed Jedi academy to begin training, only to quit in frustration at Skywalker's methods. Now Corran is on his own. Using his Corellian undercover experience, he must infiltrate, sabotage, and destroy a ruthless organization in order to find his wife. But to succeed, Corran will have to come to terms with his Jedi heritage and make a terrible choice: surrender to the dark side...or die.

Critic Reviews

"Stackpole adds many engaging details and minor characters of his own to the Star Wars universe and puts his skill at telling a fluid action story on full display here. This novel will play well among the loyal fans and can be enjoyed even by non-fans with a taste for star-faring swashbucklers." (Publishers Weekly)

Abridged... really?

What disappointed you about Star Wars?

I honestly think that I MAY have enjoyed this book more if it was not abridged. I bought the abridged version because there was not an unabridged available. The scenes came... one right after the other in quick succession, not allowing the fullness of the story to be absorbed. I really wanted to like it... but couldn't find the rhythm.

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

I have heard Anthony Heald before in a business book, one of Chet Holmes' I think. In that genre he does well. In the Star Wars EU I don't think I will listen to any more if his performances, at least not until I have exhausted all other means. His personas were narrow and unconvincing and his narration was generally uninspiring. And how about those pronunciations?? Maybe I am just used to Marc Thompon (Whom I really enjoyed in the Thrawn Trilogy), but pronouncing the middle C in "Coruscant" and "Exar Kun" as Exar Kyioon... not my favorite.

Any additional comments?

Although I enjoy the Star Wars Storyline, I was not convinced by the Exar Kun character. After 4,000 years of dormance, why come back now? Why not during the emperor's reign, especially if you claim to be so much more vastly powerful than him? I dunno, left something to be desired.

Only worth it if you havn't read the book

Taken on its own merits, this audiobook is ok. It tells the story of I, Jedi and covers all the major elements and plot points. Anyone who has not read the novel will enjoy this. Anyone who has read the novel will hate it. this is an ABRIDGED version of I, Jedi. nearly 600 pages reduced down to just under 3 hours of audio. An unabridged audiobook of that length should take 12-13 hours to run through, and as such the editing takes its toll. almost all the supplementary descriptions and non plot critical conversations that serve to immerse the reader have been removed or altered, leaving the final product feeling hollow and lacking depth.

So much missing

What was most disappointing about Michael A. Stackpole’s story?

The mos disapointing thing about this adaptation is that it was way to short. There is so much more in the book that develops the charachter and the story. Very disapointing
