The book is appealing

The book is appealing however the story and performance is not so powerful to support the name 'star wars'

When a Sample Works

I found Timothy Zahn's Behind-the-Scenes section to be interesting. The voice acting of the audiobook excerpt sounded good as well, but the constant interruptions by the otherwise interesting annotations made me grateful for this excerpt - because it's not a book I would want to purchase in audio. The print version is going in to my Wishlist. The audio is not.

Fantastic but too short

What about Timothy Zahn and Betsy Mitchell ’s performance did you like?

It's great to hear the forward and the behind the scenes notes by Tim Zahn himself!

Very interesting, but far too short!

Would you consider the audio edition of Free Excerpt: Star Wars: Heir to the Empire - Behind the Scenes to be better than the print version?

There is no print version (that I know of). I found it fascinating and could have easily listened to it for hours more. It's only 20 minutes long, at least an hour of content would have been great.
