While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes - going from one danger to a far greater one.
On Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends, only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han himself.

My First exposure to the Extended Universe
I have always loved the star wars universe, but never read any of the books. Now that I commute a lot more, I said I would try out the novels, and on recommendation from a friend, started with the Jedi Academy trilogy. Unfortunately they are abridged and entirely too short for a commute run (I blitzed through the 3 books in less than a week). It is a shame that they did not record the unabridged versions.
The story, as a trilogy however, is brilliant! I felt the tone and the themes from the movies were spot on and overall really enjoyed them.
I only have one real criticism of the narrator, and that is the way he pronounces Courscant. He does it as: "Kouriskant". With a hard "K" sound in the middle (instead of kɔɹəsɑnt) , which made me cry with anguish every time he said it. Multiple iterations of it in the one sentence is terribly jarring.
But that, and the abridged runtime are all I can give out about. I would recommend.

I have noticed a few technical glitches during playback where the programme will freeze for a few seconds then suddenly skip about 30 seconds, bit if you use the skip back 30seconds button it resolves itself. not sure if this is the programme or the app

Abridged - Ugh
What disappointed you about Star Wars?
This was the first abridged audiobook that I'd ever listened to. Never again. The story felt very disjointed and choppy. There was clearly more to be told, but I wasn't privy to it through this retelling of the story. It was disappointing overall, and I will never buy another abridged audiobook again.

Bad way to ruin a good book.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Heald?
The guy has awesome voices that make the story WAY more enjoyable.
Any additional comments?
I absolutely hated the narrator.
I guess i was spoiled the last few books i listened to were read by Marc Tompson.\
He should read EVERY Star Wars book.
