National Public Radio's 1981 adaptation of Star Wars was one of the most successful presentations in the history of radio: and a very tough act to follow. Nevertheless, two years later, the members of the Star Wars production team eagerly returned to create a radio version of The Empire Strikes Back.

Like its predecessor, this electrifying drama boasts an outstanding cast (including Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Anthony Daniels as See Threepio, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, and John Lithgow as Yoda); a greatly expanded script, with many scenes not found in the movie; and audio engineering of unparalleled excellence. The Empire Strikes Back takes you once more into a galaxy of pure sound and limitless imagination for an adventure you'll never forget.

    " This book is a classic, yes. However, it doesn't help that the book was easier to predict than the amount of rainfall in Arizona, and the plot itself was plagued with cliches. That said, this IS one of the first sci-fi novels written, so I'll cut it a bit of slack. But it isn't the best. I'd reccomend this to hardcore fans of the Star Wars franchise, but no one else. "

    " Had an interesting experience reading this book as a child. When Luke is frozen into the ceiling of the space yeti's cave, I suddenly imagined that the scene took place on a stage. The walls of the cave were cardboard, the space yeti a costume, the snow Styrofoam beads. I couldn't get this impression out of my head. Immersion utterly disrupted, I wondered if I'd ever be able to read a book again. "

    " Loved the movie...but the book is forgettable. "

    " As a kid who watched this movie very day after school, I can vividly remember reading the novelization as a second grader. Probably better just watching the movie. "
