I was first introduced to audiobooks during a summer when I decided to drive a truck in order to pay for college. Listening to books all day, every day was the only thing that made that job bearable.
Definitely. In fact, I've already "read" it twice. I got the print edition when it was first released in paperback and absolutely loved it. But after hearing Jonathan Davis read it, I would never go back to print. He brought this story to a whole new level.
Bane. This is his story, and for good reason. He's not a good guy, but you can't help but cheer for him anyway.
Yes. I just finished listening to Snow Crash and Jonathan is way better in this one. His voices are far more varied and they suit each character perfectly.
Path of Destruction is the best of the Darth Bane trilogy and one of the best Star Wars books available. I can easily recommend this to any Star Wars fan, but also to anyone who would enjoy a story about a villain unleashed. The pacing is great, the story is solid, and the characters cannot be beat. This book is well worth a listen.
Adapting the dark side to be an appreciable path rather than just a choice of evil.
Seriously don't want any spoiler alerts here
As a huge fan of listening to the Star Wars books this reader was an excellent vocalist. Most of the other books are by Marc Thompson, who is awesome. I'm glad to know that they can bring in someone else equally as good.
Peace is a Lie, there is only passion.
I know this is completely nerdy of me to say, but I absolutely loved this book!
It was my first Star Wars book. It came highly recommended and I can now see why. The story line was believable and you really get to know and understand the characters. There was always enough action and twists to keep the story engaging, but not too many to detract from the actual story line.
On top of that, the performance was extraordinary! There was music and sound effects that, admittedly, made me giggle at first, but then really added something special to the story. They picked a great person to read the story. Davis's voice was almost seductive and made me want to keep coming back to listen. Each Character sounded different and he was really able to show emotion through his words.
I must admit, I did not get much work done while I listened to this audio book! Great Read! Your credits will not be wasted!
Yes, the audio uses real sounds from the movies, I felt like I could picture what I heard.
Bane, he's a badass beyond belief!
His ability to play different voices without me really noticing it was him, few times I swore there was someone else.
When Bane discovered the Unknown Planet.
Without a doubt the best sic-fi Audiobook I have ever listened to. It was so good, I listen to it a gain, but I have to finish the 2nd & 3rd!
I've always loved the movies, but never read the books. This trilogy was recommended to me and I thought I would try it. The story is great, giving you background into the Sith history.
Jonathan Davis's does a great job.
I already have the next two books in the trilogy and they are next.
I read this book when it first came out in hardback. Loved it. When I discoverd Audible I searched every month to see if it had come out yet. That was years ago. When I saw they had put in audible I bought it even though I had no credits. One of the best star was books ever. Get it you'll love it. The last two Bane books are also worth reading. Both are very solid books.
Avid book reader and fan of quality audibles.
I really enjoyed "Path of Destruction". I found the story to be compelling and extremely satisfying. The narration and overall production (sounds, music, and voice acting) was exceptional. The characters were captivating and the stories being told from the position of the Sith and the Jedi were expertly done.
Do I have any complaints? I am not sure that I really have any. For me, this book was precisely what I look for when I listen to or read a book... a fun and interesting escape from reality. I thought the book was narrated to near perfection, it was well written, had great action, excellent dialog, and provided amazing production value through and through.
Simple a great introduction to the legendary character in the star wars universe. Jonathan Davis as usual never dissapoints.
This book is the essence of Dtar Wars lore anyone who loves Star Wars (such as I) needs to read/ listen to this book!
Of course it was. Never wanted to "to it down".
I had originally started reading this book on iBooks (apple app) and because of Johnathan's amazing performance I had to start over to hear it all again!
Darth Bane:Path of Destruction is by far my favorite star wars book. The story gives you great character arch to understand Banes journey with the dark side.
