Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?
For driving in a car and "reading" a book at the same time, yes.
Has Star Wars turned you off from other books in this genre?
no, still love 'em.
What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?
Pretty good character variation, Mr. Davis is a great reader and his voice keeps me interested. That said, the sound effects can be too loud or add to the confusion instead of clarifying. I say spend more time getting the book's tension and arc flowing better instead of adding the lame song at the beginning and all those sound effects. I want the whole book. I hate to have it abridged. If you focus on the voice and characters coming from it, I will sit through the 11-15 hrs it takes, feel cheated by the 4-6 abridged gives us.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, but usually every day or every other day I'd get a good chunk out of it.
Any additional comments?
Abridging a book sucks! A lot! There are dozens of them! I hate this! Make less books that would have the whole thing in there, cover to cover, instead of throwing tons of half (assed) books on our digital shelves. Want whole story! Can't exactly read the paper copy, want whole audio books!

Three stars is generous for this one. Far too many details are left out of this abridged version. I am a definite fan of Zahn's previous SW titles and this one just felt incomplete. Buy the paperback!

Well worth the listen if you have read the Thrawn trilogy and are after some back story of the Outbound Flight mentioned many a time in those books.

Until they release a FULL VERSION like that have with many other Star Wars novels, don’t waste your time with this copy, contains barely HALF the content of the actual novel.
