The writing in this book.... Is Timothy Zahn statice, up there with Steve Perry! K on to the next, the voice performance was better then any book on audible i have herd....and i have listen to a little over a hundred books. Sorry marc thompson, jonathan davis, allen sklar, robertson dean, but this dude killed it in the voice world! The end.
The narration is so great, I might.
Story is good, very political in nature.
Daniel Davis' voices and narration are first rate.
If you hated all the trade negotiations and politics of Episode 1, you may get bored of this book during the latter half.
I initially read the epic version but I decided to listen to it again because this book gives the prequel trilogy some depth and much needed background. it's amazing how much the 2 sith lords had a hand in many of the events that shaped the movies. Darth plagues is a great character that flashes out the sith teachings and combines his goals with science to manipulate events.
the voice work is top notch, I'm thinking of listening to it again before the year is through.
if there is one star wars book to read I believe it should be this one, the rise of Palpatine is a story that should not be glossed over. also for the avid star wars fan there are so many details that further enrich the experience.
i loved this book it filled the story of Palpatine before he became chancellor and how he became a sith I loved it. I would have to say my favorite part in the story would have to be the interaction of Palpatine manipulating Darth Plagueis. as I listen to this I could feel the emotion of the differt smoments. just loved it.
This book was very good. I really enjoyed reading about how it all began and to hear it from the Darkside. Looking forward to watching the movies again and learning more about the story.
Captivating, informative and fresh
Great narration, and a good story that completes an already known story to a great degree
He has a way to convey an elegant form of menace that suits the famous Sith lords perfectly, also the maturity of the actor flavours the entire story in a very good way.He is one of those people that i feel are pleasant to listen to, and a perfect addition to "reading actors" of the SW universe in my opinion
Loads of "aha" moments
A very very good book that completes a mythical history we are teased with from the original movies, and a great explanation to a lot of things, a new story wowen into the original stories perfectly. This is not an easy thing to do when making a story so closely linked to a very well known saga
I thoroughly enjoyed the masterful storytelling contained within Darth Plagueis. Overall, the narrator did a fantastic job representing the characters, although there were a few scenes I feel could've been performed differently. I am curious, however, how much of this story is still considered canon after Disney's meddling.
