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.
Im a big fan of the Star Wars story. I only recently started investing in the novels. This was not what i expected. It seemed like a gimmick in terms of the overall plot. I will listen to this story again and it may turn out it grows on me. Until then...
Yeah, well spent as I'm wanting to really get more familiar with the Star Wars Lore. I'm reading/listening to all the books in order so this was the next one.
I dont' know, it was too much like some wierd zombie story. I didn't like it much to be honest. I did like some of the characters though.
He's got a great voice for it all and how he changes it for different characters. I really liked him.
No, zombie type thing is meh.
this book may have been better if the reader did not sound so robotic and so Monotone at times. it is as if someone tripled to write horror. however it is not scary
Chasm of Books
Less carnage more story.
Probably not but I haven't sworn him off.
The narrator is fine. It couldn't help the fact that Red Harvest is disgusting an gore-focused.
I wouldn't necessarily cut any of the characters, I'd just temper Darth Scabrous with something or someone else. Anything or anyone else in fact.
If you want to see zombies in the Star Wars universe, go ahead and give it a try. The narration wasn't my favorite but John Grover's narration, combined with the subject matter, literally made my stomach churn. However, if you're looking for something that actually adds substance to the Star Wars expanded universe, I'd skip this one. Red Harvest lacks the distinctive Star Wars aurora that makes the universe so special.
