Darth Plagueis is a book as much about the rise of Sidious as it is about Plagueis the wise. What makes this audio performance so spectacular is Daniel Davis' convincing portrayal of both main characters. As far as im concerned, Daniel Davis is Darth Plagueis. Ah! A Sith!
This is a great book. I hope Disney decides to canonize it. They won't be able to make it better. I do wonder if the stuff about Darth Maul conflicts with existing canon stories though. I hope not. Still a great book.
the narrator does an excellent job taking you behind the scenes and showing all the planning that leads to the star wars prequels. Tip my hat to the author as well for having written this masterpiece
First and foremost, this is not an audio book, it is a full-scale theatrical production complete with Star Wars music, sound effects and superb narration.
From where the story starts to where the story ends is a true tour de force. The size and complexity of the tale prove to be strengths and weaknesses - there are times when the book feels like it tries to do a little too much, which is my only notable critique. Aside from that, it is an in-depth look into the rise of Darths Plagueis and Sidious as well as the history of the Sith. The attitudes and philosophies of the main characters show that their drive for power was more nuanced than simply "taking over the galaxy". How the characters arrive in their final stations greatly personalizes this interstellar tale. So, the 4/5 stars for story should really be a solid 4.5.
Darth Plagueis is well worth the time and a feature length movie would be an excellent set up for the cinematic Star Wars saga.
great story. very interesting how everything was incorporated to explain other deficiencies in the star wars canon.ending a bit forced .thought plagueis would put up a better fight in his own death.
This was the most informative book about the Force I've read to date. It focuses on the nature of The Force and how sentient beings perceive and interact with it. Super cool book. Plagueis is an amazing character
Performance was excellent. Tones and inflections of the narrator were great. Story was good. It was nice to have the history the book provided.
