For those fans that were left unhappy with star wars episode 1, this book does it Justice and gives us those lost crucial information ( and moments) that were never shown in the movie. The origin story of Palpatine Is a must to know for everyone interested in how he controls the galaxy through the shadow.
This audiobook will keep you on your toes as you experience the life of Darth Plagueis and the various characters he encounter.
With Daniel Davis' fantastic voice, music from the movies and a plethora of well timed sound effects, I believe that everyone and anyone can enjoy this auditory marvel.
As a fan of the Star Wars universe, I absolutely recommend til book. It's worth every single penny you give for it. This is also an excellent choice for your first audible book which you get for free. A better deal is hard to come by.
Thank you James Luceno for a fantastic experience. I look forward to either listening to or reading your other works.
While the background story of how Senator Palpatine became a Sith Lord is very interesting, I found the book to be very slow and boring. There was virtually no suspense or excitement. The book trodden along at a slow pace and could get confusing at times. It was an unimaginative story. I nearly stopped listening multiple times just because it got so boring. Missed opportunity to tell a great story.
I would listen to this book again. The performance was awesome. The ambiance created by sound effects and music is amazing. very well done. almost like a radio play.
Good narration, excellent depiction of inner monologue and subtlety
This was as much a story about Palpatine as it was about Darth Plagueis. It also leaves enough mystery that you are never entirely sure whether Plagueis devised and anticipated EVERYTHING or not.
His Plagueis voice seemed like an entirely different voice over.
No, just awe
This book should be canon, or at the very least, the new franchise should draw heavily from this book. Even though many people guessed it, Snoke should be Plagueis. It just makes sense with what this book has to offer.
This story really puts Episodes I, II , and III in a new light and was very enjoyable. Very interesting learning about the sith and the events leading up to episode I.
It's all about the master plan...
