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.
Star Wars: The Episode One We Always Wanted
Awesome to listen to and be apart of. This brings you through the first episode. Slow to some people but I loved the details of the whole story.
Started off interesting and narration is good. But story began to drag out and become somewhat uninteresting.
