    For those of you that are interested, Randomhouse has posted an excerpt of the audio book for Star by Star. You can listen to it by clicking here. SBSaudioexcerpt You might want to go there quickly before they take it down. The excerpt is mind boggling.

    Can one of you please post a transcript for us poor, speaker-less people? Or you could at least PM me if you don't want to put any spoilers here.

    OMG! I knew I was going to like this!

    Wow. Anyone not wanting to know the imfamous "MAJOR SPOILER" should not listen.

    But God, thats so cool! So sad. I love it. I want the novel now!

    Sorry, I wouldn't be able to type it up. Someone will do it soon, I'm sure.

    I wonder why they would release that part as an excerpt.

    Bib, the excerpt is over seven minutes long, it's going to take awhile for someone to post a transcript. The excerpt is about Anakin and a group of jedi knights attacking the Yuuzhan Vong. The group includes Jacen, Jaina, Tahiri, Lowbacca and others.

    They released part of the end of VP as the first teaser excerpts. Besides, many people may not truly know whats happening. I know I kind of different, in respect to the whole formations of the Jedi (who was where) and some of the names for things.

    I think the cats out the bag for the spoiler...


    Wasnt that bad. Not that good. The bit where it says how he reaches through the force just sounded corny. Liked the Vong feet part though

    Wow.

    ...

    Wow. That was... wow. I'm at a loss for words. :(

    I'm this close to tears right now. That was very well written. I could almost see what was going on. I want this book more than ever now.

    I know!!! (Now that I'm not speechless I can talk about it. ;)) When Tahiri said that I though oh how said considering what would happen later. Little did I know that at the end of the excerpt....

    The music and sound effects give a nice punch. I wish I had those when reading.

    Holy cow. I'm speechless. I can't talk. Unbelievable.

    If they put this in audio excerpt, I'm led to believe that the "spoiler" may actually be UNproven later on in the book.

    That excerpt was, as you all said, very well written. However, I believe it is misleading. I believe Vergere may be correct in that Anakin does not actually die.

    -Anakin is not shown dying (at least from what we hear)

    -Jacen and Jaina are right there, despite heavy fire. They may be able to carry an unconscious Anakin away, especially if Jaina indulges in a bit of Force-lightninging.

    more later...

    I got the impression that Jacen and Jaina were separated from Anakin. Am I wrong about that?

    chayes32, It would help to have the Realplayer media application to listen to the excerpt. The player is available for free at various websites.
