Climax fizzled out
By 1/2 way through, the listener is thinking "That's a lot of material to wrap up, I hope they start soon."
The ending needed to have more substance than what it had. Moreover, the ending was not a fitting end to, what is otherwise, a fine series of novels. Without including spoilers the brief origins of the antagonist are quickly swept aside with a reference to an episode of the animated Clone Wars series, which is aimed at young folks and ultimately cheapens the ending.
I was left thinking; "Is that it? Did I miss a chapter? Is there another instalment coming?" Like the heading states; the ending just fizzled out. Much more focus needed to applied to the conclusion of the story.
Han Solo / Ben Skywalker
Over all the series is very enjoyable and Marc Thompson does an excellent job narrating. It's too bad the ending fizzled leaving the listener thinking they missed something.
yes. Great story to it. has lots of the main characters. and then describes the history of the force good and ties in other stories in it well.
The holy bible.
makes it easy for the professorial driver to drive a listen to a book.
i could have, but very long. Nice thought. helps pass the time on the road.
Yes because of all the special effects and voices, it helps keep characters straight
Han, always Han
I can't say every addition to this series was relivelnt to the overall story, sometimes I feel like all characters do is get positioned and there is very little story but the last two were really great and made me glad I stuck it out
It was one of the better books I listened to and one of the top ones in the fate of the jedi series.
What was there not to like about Marc's performance, he does it again.
I mostly listen on my commute. I love Sci-fi, mystery thrillers, vampire love stories, great girlfriend stories and political thrillers.
This was my first time LISTENING to a Star Wars audio production. I LOVED it!! There are sound effects and music and the narrator used different voices,it was simply amazing!! I felt like I was IN the middle of the action!!. If I had known they were all like this, then I would have downloaded more of these productions sooner!!
I actually think that ALL audio books should have this level of production !!
The story did drag at times,but I LOVED Barv's sacrafice. That section was written so well. I actually cried! The ending could have gone better with Abeloth, but really, how DO you kill a being that IS part of the force itself??
Bottom line is, I LOVE the Star Wars extended universe and I was thoroughly entertained by this book. I think a large part of it was the narrator and the music and sound effects for this book.
Download this book!!
Action, Endurance, Entertaining
I loved how finally the Jedi are victorious against Abeloth and the Sith. Luke had defeated her many times during the series, but she kept coming back. It is good to have her finished off.
He is wonderful as always.
I really enjoyed the ending to the series, but there were some details that were just left kind of hanging. I feel they should have fleshed out more of why Abeloth is the way she is. You learn her backstory, but her backstory is really short. Also a new sith is introduced at the end, and you don't even learn his name even though he fights alongside Luke at one point. I just feel that the book just ended abruptly and did not flesh out some details I still had questions about. But it was a great listen and i loved the book still.
Never since the Star Wars Holiday Special has such a terrible piece of work emerged from the Star Wars universe. Due to the horrendous conclusion the past two 9-book series have led us, I am no longer against the new movies breaking the EU continuity. Marc Thompson's performance was as good as ever, but this ridiculous story has got to go.
