Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star. These refugees have turned to pillaging and plundering to survive - and they are in debt to a pirate armada, which will gladly ransom the princess to the vengeful Empire...if they find out her true identity. Struggling with intense feelings of guilt, loyalty, and betrayal, Leia is determined to help her wayward kinspeople, even as Imperial forces are closing in on her own crippled ship. Trapped between lethal cutthroats and brutal oppressors, Leia and Han, along with Luke, Chewbacca, and a battle-ready crew, must defy death - or embrace it - to keep the rebellion alive.
Took a little bit to get used to
Good Book.. Narration took some getting used to, WHERE IS MARC THOMPSON!!!!
I get that its a Leia story so a female narratior seems logical. But it did take a few chaptars to get used to it.
Give it a chance!
Good Book, bad read
I agree with others, the narrator is hard to listen to. But, its not that she reads poor, or has a bad voice..she is just 1.) Not familiar with the characters she is trying to "act" for, 2.) the voices are horrible. If she just read the book, I would be fine. But every male voive sounds like "Grace" trying to pretend she is Principle Roony in Ferris Bullers day off. The worst thing I thought, is she made Leia sound like a B with a bad itch. Every sentence was attitude. In A new Hope, when leia says " If money is all you love than thats what you'll receive"... Imagine that attitude..constantly. It is off putting and not the character.
Again, Jeanette has a great voice...she just cant do voices
Do not waste money on this narrator. Her voice is grating. I own at least 50 audiobooks and all the narrators are at least decent, but I can't stand her voice.
