A good book that I enjoyed much more then I thought I would. Narrated by Hondo Ohnaka (Disney era Star Wars' answer to Jack Soarrow).

I know this book is aimed a younger readers but it is still great for older Star Wars fans that have been their from day one.

The book contains 3 stories. The first an aging Hondo is drawn into a heist (or is is the other way around) by a young Han Solo, Chewbacca and a mystery woman.

The second story is rescue attempt of and post

I listened to this book via Audible.

Pirate's Price is part of the Flight of the Falcon series, which spans several books and comics. It heavily features Hondo Ohnaka, who first appeared in The Clone Wars TV show and later Rebels. It's a frame narrative that ties into the other stories in the series.

The overall concept is Hondo recounting his past experiences and adventures with the Millennium Falcon over many years. Apparently Han and Chewie know Hondo fairly well, and it

This is an incredibly fun and exciting book. It is an easy read meant for young adults but it adds to Han Solo and the millennium falcon 's story from the point of view of one of my favorite secondary characters.I laughed a lot and could not stop turning pages. Honestly wish it were longer. I would read a full novel of Hondo narrating his own adventures. Plus the ending leads directly in to smuggler's run so this is a must before going to Galaxy's Edge. I can't wait to re read it with the audibl ...more

Pirate's Price sets up the story of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland
WHERE I WILL BE WORKING ON THE OPENING TEAM THIS SUMMER BUT IT'S NO BIG DEAL I'M SO EXCITED.
This book is hysterical. It's for a younger demographic, but it's fun for adults too. LIKE DISNEYLAND. Sorry; I'll calm down. Still, I'm 100% sure it was misshelved in the Barnes and Noble where I bought it. It was in the children's section... but the little children's section. After I picked it up, I spied a book teaching kids how to go potty. That'/>WHERE

This review is really for the audiobook.. which. Is. Awesome. Seriously, don't bother with the print. Never thought about how much I would enjoy listening to Hondo tell me a story for 5 hours but I am so glad thats exactly what happened. The actual stories are kind of whatever but they are sooooo not the main focus of enjoyment here. The author did a great job writing Hondo's speech and personality. Def my fav SW book/audio production by a long shot .

I’m not an audiobook person, but sometimes you have to make exceptions. When I heard Pirate’s Price was being narrated by Jim Cummings, the person who actually voices Hondo Ohnaka, I knew an exception might be in order. Now Pirate’s Price is a younger reader novel at just 240 pages. On top of that, I was not familiar with Lou Anders’ writing. So jumping all in with Pirate’s Price was a bit of a gamble. Thankfully, it paid off big time. I could not believe just how fun this story was as an audiob ...more

While it pained me to spend an Audible credit on a 5 hour book, the reviews were glowing, and I was not disappointed.

Jim Cummings masterfully narrates a collection of stories told by Hondo Ohnaka, infamous weequay pirate from the Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons. The format of the book is for young readers, but it is full of comedy gold, great characters, and canon details for Star Wars fans of any age. I enjoyed it more than many of the recent additions to the "grown-up" novels. It is

I saw this book at Barnes & Noble and laughed. I wasn't going to get it, but I decided to because I thought it would be an easy, fun read. Hondo Ohnaka, introduced in the Clone Wars tv show and later seen in Star Wars Rebels, narrates this story. I wasn't expecting much out of this book, but it ended up blowing me away. I had such a great time reading it, and since Hondo was narrating the story, I laughed out loud more times than I could count. He is such a funny and likable character. Altho ...more

This was so much fun! Lou Anders took a risk writing a story entirely from Hondo's first-person perspective and it totally pays off. He understands the character and brings him to life incredibly. I laughed out loud multiple times while reading.

A simple story made 300% more entertaining because it's written from Hondo's POV. I laughed a lot at this.

I enjoyed this more than I was expecting to. I didn't particularly like the first entry in the Flight of the Flacon series and not once did I ever think to myself "I'd really love to see Hondo get his own book". He was a nice value added element for Clone Wars and Rebels, but I didn't expect him to be able to carry his own book.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed this one. The characterization of Hondo is spot on and I think treating the book as an anthology of stories never allowed for anything

Anders goes above and beyond in crafting an intricate (by middle-grade standards) plot that ties all three stories together, and in imagining environments including an elaborately shielded safety-deposit planet. There’s also a world where cities are built on the shells gargantuan grazing creatures that move in herds, so buildings constantly rearrange themselves.

You don’t want to get caught underneath a city like that. Needless to say, Hondo does. That’s what you get for trying to ste

This was fun! I always go into these middle grade Star Wars novellas with guarded expectations, and it's such a delight when I enjoy them. This got a few genuine laughs out of me.

The 'present-day' of this book is after the events of the The Last Jedi, but it contains a lot of flashback scenes and a story-within-a-story format, so it manages to tick a few nostalgia boxes while also dropping some tantalising tidbits about things to come.

If you're on the fence about whether or not this

Reunion with Hondo Ohnaka

I don’t normally go for the junior grade novels, but a book featuring Hondo Ohnaka teaming up with Han Solo and Chewbacca was too fun to pass up.

This is a light hearted romp and a fun adventure. Lou Anders did a great job capturing Hondo’s voice. This is actually three stories told from Hondo’s perspective inside a framing story that actually begins after The Last Jedi.

If you like audiobooks, then you are in for a treat as Jim Cummings reprises

This was such a fun read! It also has lots of little tidbits about Battu and Blackspire from the upcoming Star Wars Land at Disney parks, Three stories narrated by Hondo give us more info on The flight of the falcon and possibly info on who is trying to buy it. I loved everything about this book and I will be borrowing the audio version from my library as well.

My Review: I am really enjoying this telling of legendary tales and this time we get three stories involving the Falcon. I really enjoyed Hondo's narration of the story, a bit unreliable but still so much fun. We also get the crew we all know and love of Han and Chewie. I like how the stories take place in vastly different time periods in the saga, from post clone wars to after the Last Jedi, but it is done in such a way that it doesn't give away too much. As far as I know this is the second book in th ...more

Do you remember the pirate Hondo Ohnaka from either the Star Wars: Clone Wars or Star Wars: Rebels animated series? You don’t? That’s a little shocking. Sure, this Weequay was a background character, but he managed to insinuate himself into some pretty unforgettable sequences, both for better and for worse. I was never much of a fan myself. So imagine my dismay when I tuned into Star Wars: Pirate’s Price only to discover he was the front-and-center character driving the plot?

Yeah, I

The Millennium Falcon was truly a beautiful ship...And the legendary Hondo Ohnaka wanted her. After all, Hondo was feared throughout the galaxy as a pirate of extraordinary skill and his crew was as notorious as he... well... almost... when he still had a crew. He had captured a Sith, fought with and against the Jedis. Why...he was friend to Obi Wan Kenobi. No one was as interesting as he. And HE was going to own the Falcon. Well he was going to steal the Falcon...if only that pesky Han Solo guy ...more

Bazine Netal has been searching for the Millennium Falcon. On Batuu, she meets up with the famous pirate Hondo Ohnaka, who tells her three tales of his encounters with the ship and her crew.

This was extremely funny and listening to Jim Cummings voice Hondo for five hours was an absolute delight.

Considering this was meant for a younger audience, I didn't have high expectations of it. But the last part of the book made the entire thing worth it. You have not enjoyed your day until you've experienced a small army of porgs pooping on someone in defense of their ship.

Pirate's Price was an unexpectedly fun adventure - enjoyable for an adult reader and definitely a five-star read for the middle-grade target audience. Hondo Ohnaka, the Weequay pirate from the Rebels series, narrates a trio of tales about his run-ins with the Millenium Falcon. The first tale is the longest and best, with numerous surprising twists and a solid role for young Han Solo. Almost made me wish they'd used the Pirate's Price plot for the Solo movie. The next pair of tales are short and sweet, though they l ...more

I was really surprised by this one. I wanted something short for Friday to listen to in work, since I probably wasn't going to be able to get back to it until Monday, so I figured I would try this one. Once I realized it was from Hondo's point of view, just wasn't too sure I was in the mood for that, or would really like it. I certainly knew who the pirate was from Clone Wars, but most importantly, from SW Rebels - thought he was okay and all. I loved this! It was narrated by the actor who did t ...more

This was a lot of fun to listen to, especially with Jim Cummings — Hondo in person — reading it in character!

It neatly wrapped up at the end, and it felt like a must addition to the canon, especially when one thinks of the upcoming Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland.

I also very much enjoyed the nods to the Clone Wars and links to Episodes VII and VIII.

Great story behind how the Falcon got to Batuu in the hands of Hondo Ohnaka. I've heard the narration is delightful in the audio version but I read it with Hondo's voice in the back of my head. Perhaps not the same as hearing Hondo say pew-pew but close enough.
Christopher Lutz
Hondo Ohnaka is one of the best characters in all of Star Wars. I’m thrilled he’s part of Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge and gets to be introduced to the larger general public. As an explanation for why Hondo has the Millennium Falcon on the planet Batuu, this story is believable and rewarding for me, having watched the character over ten years and multiple TV appearances. The only way to consume this adventure is through the audiobook. The voice of Hondo himself, Jim Cummings, does the narration and sp ...more

There isn’t a Star Wars character better suited to narrate a book about himself than Hondo Ohnaka. What would have been a solid middle-grade anthology is elevated to must-read status for any fan of The Clone Wars and Galaxy’s Edge because of its hilarious first-person narration, which I assume is made even better by listening to the audiobook. Lou Anders obviously understands Hondo to his very core, and if he doesn’t pen the in-universe novel The Book of Hondo one day, I will be sorely disappointed.
