Publisher's Summary

He is Boba Fett, the most feared and successful bounty hunter in the galaxy, and even the most hardened criminals tremble at his name. Now he faces the deadliest challenge of his infamous career: an all-out war against his most dangerous enemies.
As the Rebellion gathers force, Prince Xizor proposes a cunning plan to the Emperor and Darth Vader: smash the power of the Bounty Hunters Guild by turning its members against each other. Only the strongest and most ruthless will survive, and they can be used against the Rebellion. It's a job for the fiercely independent Boba Fett, who jumps at the chance to destroy his rivals. But Fett soon realizes the murderous factions, criminal conspiracies, and the evil at the Empire's dark heart. Boba Fett has always finished first. And in this game, anything less is death.
(P)1998 Lucasfilm Ltd. and TM.

Filling in the Gaps

Although I am a big fan of Star Wars, I have not read all the books, comics etc. So there is alot of back story to discover. Boba Fett is one of the best characters. Even delivering a serious appearence in the Legacy of the Force series (which I highly recommend), The Bounty Hunter series is a fantastic addition to my library. Most of the story spread across the New Hope and Return of the Jedi timeline.

The character development, and narration of the book is fantastic.

Ok for hardcore SW fans

The story is hard to follow and jump around since its so abridged. Read the book if you have time. I'd skip it till you listen to everything else in the SW universe otherwise. I am going to skip the next 2 audio format and I normally listen to every SW book.

Nothing happened...

The entire book was talking about how cool boba fett was, while boba fett did literally nothing of note, in fact the only thing that happened was a guy found boba fett at the start. Then the rest was different people talking about how cool he was. If he's so cool make him do something

Disapointing

What would have made Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter, Book 1: The Mandalorian Armor better?

The book needed to be longer than 2hrs.
Although the voice variation was appreciated, it became a little bit annoying.

What will your next listen be?

Darth Bane - Destiny of Evil

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice animation was really annoying and sometimes difficult to understand.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The storyline had much more potential but just didn't elaborate enough to make it a great listen..
