No it was not due to just the amount of characters and names in this book!
This is definitely a ZOMBIE book. A wonderful zombie book set in a Star Wars universe. It takes a very interesting turn half way through where plant life comes through in a zombie universe. Very new, very cool. LOTS of characters though and lots of different names which makes it a little hard to follow especially when listening and not reading. YAY Sith zombies.
The book was amazing especially the way Joe endused the horror into the star wars genre. Everyone gave this a stupid low rating just because of how squimish and disgusted some were. If you dont like the horror genre of book this is a defenite no no. Others on the other hand is a must buy.
I chose this book without knowing the premise, so it took a while before I realized it would ONLY be about teenage Sith zombies. The story was just terrible - I didn't care about what happened to any of the characters except kind of the protagonist and she went from being perfectly helpless to supposedly strong to helpless again so many times I couldn't even keep track.
John Glover's performance was awkward. His pronunciation was stunted and jarred me out of the story I was so desperately trying to finish multiple times. Overall not a Star Wars book I'd recommend to anyone.
nothing to say but the narrator was ssooo bad. he made it hard to enjoy the book. I thought the book was trash until I was able to hear past the narration around maybe chapter 25... he is God awful... you would be better off reading the book yourself as opposed to having this narrator..... SAY the book to you (as opposed to read) of he were an actor his range would be akin to Nick cage.. that is to say this narrator had ZERO range.
Unimaginative story with blatant references to other movies/ games that no one liked in the first place. In space, you can dream up any story. Instead, the author ripped off other stories and killed the Star Wars vibe.
Write your own story. Really? A Jedi reciting the skills line from Taken? Do you know what a Jedi is...?
The narration was fantastic. Only enjoyable part of the story.
The entire Sith side of the story. Why the hell did you jump on the zombie bandwagon? The reason why people like the Star Wars universe is because there are ENDLESS possibilities. You can literally do anything, you are creating a new universe. Instead you beat the undead horse.
I ran out of ranting.
The narrator is good, but Marc Thompson is better by far. The story is odd, a few phrases from the movie Taken almost word by word, and then turning into a zombie story. Not really a story line I expect for a Star Wars novel. But once I decided to look past that the story was not bad.
The story in Red Harvest was, honestly, kind of dumb. To sum it up in a few words... Force-sensitive, talking flowers and zombies. You read that right, zombies. The only thing that was really Star Wars about this was the fact that they used some of the same terms. This story would have fit just as well in a contemporary setting. There was nothing special about it.
As for the narration... John Glover has a very good voice but some of his enunciation choices and awkward pauses made me feel like I was listening to something narrated by William Shatner or Christopher Walken. I love them, but not to listen to a book.
Overall, Red Harvest was a week entry in the Star Wars extended universe, in my opinion.
