I've been doing the Star Wars EU thing lately, in audiobook form.
For the 20 year anniversary of Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy, they released an unabridged edition of Heir to the Empire read by Marc Thompson (who, if you're not in the EU audiobook loop, has been the voice of the EU since the Legacy of the Force series, and is by far my favorite EU narrator). Naturally I'm quite familiar with the story, but it's nice to re-visit it, particularly with Thompson's narration. Unfortunately the word is sales haven't been stellar, so we may not get the rest of the series.
Next up was James Luceno's Darth Plagueis, read by Daniel Davis (you might remember him as the Holodeck creation Professor Moriarty in TNG). As you can imagine, it tells the story of Palpatine's Sith master, from just prior to HIS master's fall, to just after the events of Episode I. If you're curious about how Palpatine became Sidous it's worth looking into. The narration by Davis is excellent, so I can heartily recommend the unabridged audio version.
Currently I'm finishing off the Fate of the Jedi series; the ninth and final book in the series, Apocalypse by Troy Denning, was released yesterday, and I should finish it today.
For those attempting the Stieg Larsson Millenium Trilogy, I quite enjoyed the unabridged performance by Simon Vance. He gives each character a unique voice, so you know who's speaking right away, and he handles the various Swedish names (people, streets, towns, etc.) with ease.
