This was an enjoyable story to listen to. The narration was good and the sound effects added to the dramatic story telling. If you're a Star Wars fan, you'll enjoy it.
Solid story, great performance and builds more into the Vader story. If you enjoy any of the Star Wars you will enjoy this.
War, Love, Hate
The deception of Darth Vader
War has erupted and one man must make a decision to decide the fate of the entire Galaxy.
So far the worst star wars book I've listened to from audible. Force Unleashed II was so bad I got a refund. I should ask for one on this book as well. But I'll take this one on the chin.
If you want to hear about Starkillers love for 4-5 hours then these 2 books may be to your liking.
If your a big fan of the game with the same title than you'll love the book my only issue is if you read or play one than you'll know exactly what is going to happen in the other.
If you are a fan of the Star Wars Movies, then you will be able to relate to many of the principle characters in this audio book. There are several parts of this book that left me with more questions than answers, however, I was engrossed in the story being told by the reader and the Star Wars-esque sound effect help to complete the listeners immersion into the varied locations and situations.
Bottom Line: Recommended Listening for any real Star Wars fan.
I must say i absolutely abhor abridged books and this is a prime example. The accompanying sound effects and vocal changes add entertainment value but it is evident there are story actions missing. Each missing action depletes the overall story and leaves you thinking "did I miss something?". I recommend it for fan-boys or fan-girls that can't get enough but if you aren't, I suggest waiting for an unabridged copy it may be better.
FORTY SOMETHING THUG FOR HIRE WHO ENJOYS A GOOD BOOK.
THIS IS JUST A MEDIOCRE OUTING BY ALL CONCERNED. AND THIS IS FROM A GUY WHO LOVED THE VIDEO GAME IT IS BASED OFF, AND A HUGE STAR WARS FAN TO BOOT. BUT LACKLUSTER IS THE ONLY WORDS TO DESCRIBE THIS EFFORT. FROM THE STORY, TO THE READING, THERE ISN'T ANYTHING HERE TO BLOW YOUR SPEAKERS. IT'S NOT THAT IT IS BAD. IT'S JUST NOT ELEVATED FROM ITS SOURCE MATERIAL; WHICH IS A VIDEO GAME. EVEN THE SOUND EFFECTS LAID INTO THE NARRATION DIDN'T HELP BRING EXCITEMENT TO THIS LACKLUSTER (THERE'S THAT WORD AGAIN) PRODUCTION. IF YOU SKIPPED THIS ONE YOU WOULDN'T BE MISSING A THING.
