Made it through the whole book, but only once, as opposed to my usual two listens. The novel took the enticing concept of "a zombie story set in the Star Wars universe" and made it feel like a Goosebumps book.
All the zombies ever seem to do is scream (the performance makes sure you are very clear on the fact that they do scream), and ooze blood. Even though it takes place in a Sith academy, where all the students are teenagers, I really had trouble believing that the fledgling warriors couldn't stave off an undead invasion. Give anyone in The Walking Dead a lightsaber and they'd make it to the series finale.
A Jedi who communicates with plants was mildly interesting, and the bounty hunter was kind of cool. Umm, the droid was ok. That's about it.
Better than Aftermath, but don't both with this one unless you're planning on reading every single one of the Star Wars novels, or you're 11.
This book is a little child-like, and poorly narrated by a person who ignores punctuation and obviously is into amateur theatre. It is isn't clear who would enjoy this.
Had it read by a few Star Wars fans who could of offered some constructive feedback. It was like listening to young boys making up a story as they go along.
Just about anyone.
The last page was wonderful.
I feel let down by this entire experience. The content and the narration was the only thing chilling about this work. Truly, this book can only be described as childish.
Currently listening to all the Star Wars books.
I cant believe so many people are giving 2 and 3 star ratings. This book rocked. If you liked Death Troopers or Maul: Locked Down then you'll like Red Harvest. Joe Schreiber brought the gore into the Star Wars Galaxy with Red Harvest. I loved it.
the moment the first student turned into the undead.
His ability to give each character a distinct voice.
A Sith Outbreak
I have read/listened too almost all Starwars books out and this was one I hadn't been aware of until now. So with excitement I got it without reading reviews.
I have wasted my money. The performer sounds like he has just learned to read with many awkward pauses and the story just drones on. I only got about 3 hours into it and decided silence was better. This is the very first audio book I've ever not finished.
Save your credit and get any of the other great Starwars books.
great story excellently written. Awesome book. the narrator read in an unnatural manner almost mechanical. it was hard to listen to because of the narrator. it was almost like it was computer generated.
This book was as much Star Wars as the latest Harry Potter book. In fact, if you substituted the word "sith" with "death eater" and "Jedi" with "auror" and had the seldom light saber reference changed to wand, this book could have easily been a Harry Potter and zombie fusion instead.
Coming from a background of having read dozens of Star Wars books and having watched every movie several times, I was really hoping for some strong sith lore at least. There was zero lore.
If you're into quirky sound effects of heads being squished onto meat hooks, and listening to the detailed descriptions of faces being ripped to shreds by the teeth of other former sith students turned zombie, then boy oh boy, this is the book for you! There are hours of cheese ball sound effects and gory descriptions.
This book is not for the faint of heart. This should definitely be rated R.
it had a few unique twist I got a little hokey taking the Dark Side of Witchcraft illness and sorcery into the dark sides abilities interesting concept but not quite sure if it jibes
Wish I could get this time back. Even the Star Wars Universe isn't immune to the obsession with zombies.
