Very well done for a Star Wars audiobook. Even though it is abridged, the 6 hour run-time leaves enough material to make this audiobook entertaining. That said, you can still notice gaps where, I assume, material was cut out for the abridgement. This can be annoying after a while. I won't beat around the bush, I loathe any abridgement and I would encourage people to complain to the publisher so that they will begin releasing unabridged versions of these books. Other than that, this book was excellent. Marc Thompson is one of the most talented narrators that I have heard. It is a pleasure to listen to him. The different character voices that he assumes throughout the book are executed flawlessly and I had to keep reminding myself that it was the same person speaking. The writing, sound production, and music were all top notch. I would give this 5 stars if not for the abridgement.
One last thing, stay away from any of the star wars audiobooks that are less than 6 hours in length. They are so butchered by the abridgements, that they are not worth your time or money. Quite a few of these are narrated by Anthony Heald and he is just plain awful. I found this out the hard way. Just remember, Anthony Heald = extremely poor narration. Jonathan Davis = Extremely good narration. Marc Thompson = Outstanding narration.

What disappointed you about Star Wars?
Great story and the narrator Marc Tompson is fantastic. These abridged versions however are a huge disappointment. I will finish the rest of this story but will no longer give up my credits or purchase any more of these abridged versions ever again. It sucks that the producers and random house audio have created so many abridged books.. They are a huge let down. I feel some what ripped off. I have some titles that are 40+ hours of content and cost 1 credit. These are barely 6 hrs and are so chopped up as to take more away they give.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger! At the abridgement!

Lots of action, space battles and light sabre fights. Worth a read if you like star wars.
gets better and better all the time story keeps on edge a must listen cool.
I have been completely enamoured with Legacy of the force.
Absolutely hooked on the overall story ark aswell as the individual stories contained each book.
But this is where the story Really Slows down (frustratingly so)
And I'm sorry to say the same thing happened in the Fate of the Jedi series, and that is...?That as the writers take it in turns it gets real boring when Aaron Alston turn comes to write his entry into the series.
He's style is just so long winded and boring.
