The origin story of Han Solo is a rollicking space western that translates well from the big screen to audiobook form. The immersive sound effects and iconic music create an authentic Star Wars experience, and narrator Marc Thompson continues to expertly voice the denizens of this galaxy far, far away. Thompson's young Han is wisecracking but sounds more earnest than the swaggering rogue he'll eventually become. Other voices are uncannily accurate impressions of their onscreen counterparts, particularly those of Lando Calrissian and Han's world-weary mentor, Tobias Beckett. Thompson doesn't try mimicking the movie's female leads, Qi'Ra and the free-spirited droid L3-37, but captures their essences by using higher pitches and different accents. With added viewpoints and subplots, this audiobook enriches and expands upon the original story. A.T.N. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
