Yes, Drew's story was excellent, not to mention greatly narrated by Jonathan Davis.
The tense and gripping ending. I never thought one could 'read' about a lightsaber battle but Drew made it truly imaginable with his accurate descriptions.
The background noise sets the environment, while Jonathan and his many voices really add flavour to each character. It would have been a bit flat if all the characters had the same voices, so the fact that each character had their own unique identify really made it more exciting.
Despite being evil (albeit a lawful evil), you really do feel a bit sorry for Bane and everything that he struggles against.
I can't recommend this entire series enough. Not only is it great story telling, excellent narration, but the characters are their own with each distinct personality. Some you really care for while others you just want to slap. But the fact that you care so much either way is a great testament to how good this series is.
Wish they made a movie!
Darth Bane training young apprentice!
Bane in the Sith Temple!
Get it! Now
The Rule of Two is a very good Star Wars installment following the pattern of the Old Republic series. The Sith dominate but the Jedi are there trying and prying.
The author succeeds in creating the ever so lasting magic Star Wars atmosphere but despite all odds in favour for the story-line the final steps of the race stumble and you ask why and how could nobody see that big flaw.
The author does not clinch it and I was ripped apart by this galactic big mistake...
I hope the third part of the trilogy will make up for the flaw of Rule of Two. The first episode Path of Destruction does not show any such story deficiencies but on the other hand there are no such climaxes as the Rule of Two offers when the "big fight" is on. That one makes up for all of your money purchasing this great listen.
On my 64-long Star Wars chart The Rule of Two is found on place 15. Not too bad, I believe.
Joakim - the Swedish book worm.
- The narrator... I listened and read "Revan" from the same author from the same SW era, but with Marc Thomson... that was incredibly good!.. i loved this story (also read it) but the boring presentation made it uninteresting
- background music, effect... that was also much better in "Revan"
The performance of the narrator was so boring and shallow that it made very hard to enjoy the otherwise great story...
Marc Thompson... definitely!
It has.. :) I'd re-record it with Marc, and better music/effects but I guess it is not possible.. :)
