Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire Reviewed

Somewhere between the second and third Star Wars movies, there was a lot of extra stuff that happened. Fortunately, there was a series of books that could pick up all this amazing space battling and name dropping: The Expanded Universe series. Chris used to read a lot of these. Like a lot. So when we decided to do guilty pleasures he knew exactly what he wanted: to hear Chewy growling, light sabers buzzing, and space lasers firing (pew pew pew!). The audiobook captures all that perfectly, an abridged version complete with voice acting and cheap sound effects! Meet the new character, prince somethingorother, who is trying to kill Luke. But so is the Empire. And that's pretty much it. So they battle in space. It's exactly what you know and expect.
