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.
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. :(
