This was my first audiobook and I loved it, the story was incredible and the narration impeccable, that along with the effects and music created a vivid picture in my head, when I closed my eyes it was like I was watching it All play out, even more personal then a movie. Great story great reader great performance!
I was intrigued to start this story to learn how the emperor came to be. This novel did not let me down at all. The narrator did a outstanding job and I recommend to any one. Good job
The story is great, it sets a great stage for The Phantom Menace and also gives the listener a look into the Sith. The performance was mostly great. The reason for the markdown was the performers "female" voice. I understand it doesn't have to be perfect but it is borderline distracting. Other than that, I have no complaints.
Wonderfully written and performed. Answers so many questions from the Prequel Trilogy. Also explains the Sith, which in the movies get hardly any screen time.
A look into the origin of Palpatine through the eyes of his Master. Gripping and intriguing.
The narrator does a pretty good job with most of the voices though, gets a bit confusingly similar with the different Senate humans. Also, in my opinion, Darth Sidious and Palpatine should have had different tonal qualities from each other.
Because this view of Palpatine is thru Darth Plagueis we don't get to be inside Palpatine's head as he masters the Dark Side. A perspective I was hoping to gain. Alas.
A great book however! Very enjoyable!
I loved learning the backstory to the rise of Palpatine, as well as finally learning about the mythical Darth Plagueis.
I would compare this to Star Wars: Kenobi, in that it's centered around a single character.
Darth Plagueis. Daniel Davis was amazing, and his voice lent a genteel and powerful air to the character.
