People generally buy audio books as an accessory to the hard copy it belongs with, but the work that goes into making these auditory masterpieces is pure awesome. This week, we dug up a couple gems from Marc Thompson, veteran voice actor for several books in theĀ Star Wars franchise.

His voice has been showcased in the Thrawn Trilogy, thrawn duology, and Legacy of the Force series to name a few projects from his expansive resume. Most recently, he voiced the newest novelization of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. You can watch the videos below to see Marc doing what he does best, and be sure to check out StarWars.com for a more in-depth look at the production of audio books.
