As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has learned of a sinister Imperial plot to bring entire worlds to their knees. Deep in Empire-dominated space, a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate...and a threat that may be too great to overcome.
If the worlds at the Empire's mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire's military; Chirrut Ïmwe, a blind holy man; his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters. In their hands rests the new hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion victory - if only they can capture the plans to the Empire's new weapon.
But even as they race toward their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate enemy - a monstrous world unto itself - darkens the skies, waiting to herald the Empire's brutal reign with a burst of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.

elaboration of the movie story, but constant pain
The book recounts the movie's story and elaborates on key points and character back stories. I don't want to spoiler here, but I found it very satisfying filling many of the holes the movie could not fill in its 2 hour run.
The speaker does a good job giving the characters distinct voices, and most of them close to the movie.
So why am I only giving 2 stars? The audiobook suffers from constant background noises that are supposed to create the atmosphere, but a lot of them are high-pitched, and continue for several minutes without stop. Then they change over to a different high-pitched noise. Most of them have the same volume as the speakers voice.
That is absolutely a no-go for an audiobook you might want to listen to with headphones.
If you want to read that story, buy the book, I am sorry to say.
