Publisher's Summary

They are the X-wing fighters: sleek, swift, and deadly. And as the struggle rages across the vastness of space, the fearless men and women who pilot them risk both their lives and their machines. Their mission: to defend the Rebel Alliance against a still powerful and battle-hardened Imperial foe in a last ditch effort to control the stars!
Its very name strikes fear in enemy hearts. So when Rebel hero Wedge Antilles rebuilds the legendary Rogue Squadron, he seeks out only the best, the most skilled, the most daring X-wing pilots. Through arduous training and dangerous missions, he weeds out the weak from the strong, assembling a group of hard-bitten warriors willing to fight and ready to die.
Antilles knows the grim truth: that even with the best X-wing jockeys in the galaxy, many will not survive their near suicidal missions. But when Rogue Squadron is ordered to assist in the assault of the heavily-fortified Imperial stronghold of Black Moon, even the bravest must wonder if any at all will survive.
(P)1996 Lucasfilm Ltd. and TM.

Good, but SEVERELY abridged

Henry Thomas's performance is good, but some of the charters sound too similar. It lacks the details that make it a really good book, as the abridged story just leaves out too much of what make the book so much more enjoyable and complete.

What disappointed you about Star Wars?

It was horrible. Too much sound effects drown out reader. Story was too much abridged.

Has Star Wars turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes if they are like this one.

How could the performance have been better?

Soften the sound effects. Do an unabridged version

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars?

Unabridged version is a must. Sounds effects should be very soft in the background not over powering drowning out the reader.

Narrator not engaging at all

I am a life long Star Wars fan, however never ventured into the expanded universe as much. Yes, condemn me haha. I remember seeing the original trilogy at the cinema when they first came out. Anyhow everyone says this series is great to read. I am going to buy the written version as I have been totally put off by the narrator. As someone said, he sounds bored throughout and really does little to engage a listener.

Very disappointing for a Star Wars book

I'm really gutted that this story was so bad.
The narrator sounded bored through the whole story and I struggled through it.
I'll only get the next book in the series if it's a different narrator but I'll even struggle at that.
