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.
This book did not have the elements that would help you envision a Star Wars story. Very little mention of the force, Sith/Jedi rivalry and rank structures, powers etc... It read more like a horror story. There were no tie-ins, just a very linear book. No emotional attachment for the audience. The narrator did not change is voice to distinguish characters. Poorly written, poorly executed. :(

not so sure I would, no
I didn't feel he was the right narrator for this kind of work. I imagine him better reading for a financial thriller or something by John Grisham
no. Let me rethink a second ... no.
The author stole too many elements from other works - zombies from the Halo series, "I have a set of unique skills that ..." from Liam Neeson, and so forth. There was nothing he added to the greater body of Star Wars literature and I ended up stopping halfway through.
Great book. And Lionel Luther is awesome! I was worried when I realized Marc Thompson wasn't reading. In his own way John Glover is great. Marc is great with voices and John is great with feeling. The story is StarWars. I don't know why people get weird cause there are zombies. I like both. Regardless it is all about Sith Alchemy. Very StarWars. To be honest I was worried because I read some bad reviews. I honestly don't think they even listened to it or if they did they went into it with a closed mind. Let's face it Marc Thompson has spoiled is when it comes to audiobooks. Any ways I own every non abridged StarWars Audiobook and will be listening to this one again and again!
Hmmm for 4 months this book has been on my mind to download next time i get a new credit! But i have always read the rewieves and always decieded not to download it! But now when i finally did i regrett it!!
