Great story, just hated it is the abridged. I have the hard copy book, I have to get to read that now. Loved the sound effects. Grew up on Star Wars. Totally cool.
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.
The fact that this is the 3rd time I have listened to this production and that I have read the novel should tell you how much I love it. It has great character development, characters you care about, and action all the way. This story may or may not be canon but it fits perfectly within the movie narratives. I only wish that it would have been the full version and not abridged. PS: it totally makes me play the game every time!
I enjoy and love all things Star Wars, I really loved this book as it tells an intriguing story that is different to what we already know. In the same time this story being different actually brings information about the birth of the rebellion, which happens in an interesting way with the main character being the unlikely hero. I really enjoyed knowing/ learning how the rebellion was born. This book is great and anyone will enjoy fan to first timer alike.
I never played the game stop maybe that is where I missed out. Johnathan Davies great performance as always. It just seemed like too much effort on trying to re-describe action sequences you would have seen in the game. I like the star wars "Legends" (formerly Expanded Universe, EU) genera a lot, this one was okay but didn't live up to hype I thought (expecting closer calibre to Darth Bane, Plageius or Tarkin). not bad all expecting more
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.
