Excellent adaption of the movie, terrific reading (as always) by Marc Thompson.

This novelization is a great example of how the movie tie-ins can work to turn a fun action movie into a very good SF story. When it works (and it does very well here) the author can add the logic, narrative and exposition a fast paced movie inevitably lacks. I love the background parts (Han's Imperial service, L3-37's awakening and transition) that are now in my mind's eye version of the movie.

Thompson as narrator does his usual job of creating - from one voice - a full cast of characters. His rendition Dryden Vos and Becket are particularly striking.
