Drew Karpyshyn's book is a master piece couldn't stop listening to this first part of three.
Jonathan Davis narrated the Hell out of this book. his performance couldn't have been better between each character.
I look forward to the next two books!!! This is well worth it!!!
They should start casting for this movie now. Drew Karpyshyn did a awesome job writing, it kept me intrigued and wanting more. Jonathan Davis brought all the characters to life a great combination of great minds. Now part 2.
Darth Bane trilogy is easily the best Star Wars series. It tells you how Bane sacrifices his own people for the greater good of the Sith. In doing this he begins a journey to what eventually becomes the Empire by implementing the Rule of Two. Hollywood is always slow to realize what fans really want. But I think at some point you will see Banes story on the big screen. The most influential Sith Lord ever!
I was in the mood for a book that's fun to listen to, with a rich world to explore.
Something like Harry Potter or LOTR, but not as heavy to listen to. This hit the spot.
Great performance, subtle sound effects and a fun story. Rooting for the villain is so much more fun
The story of a man's journey to the Dark Side and path to domination. The story follows a well known Sith Lord, Darth Bane, from his humble beginnings as a miner to his time as a soldier for the Sith army, and eventually a Dark Lord of the Sith! The writer is very detailed and learned in the lore of the Star Wars universe and paints images and depicts scenes that play out in your mind as if you were witnessing them yourself. The amazing narrator takes it a step further by bringing it all to life with his talented voice and emotion that changes to suit many characters, differing them from each other and masterfully fitting them each. The only exception is the female voices, he does his best to imitate a females voice but understandably doesn't perfect it due to his gender of course. This however takes almost nothing away from the experience and is negated by his masterful delivery of all the other characters. I was already familiar with part of this story due to reading the graphic novel "Jedi vs Sith" which mirrors the part of this story it is based on surprisingly well. However this was the first novel I've ever read/listened to all the way though and I found it very hard to stop when I had to. I highly recommend this novel to anyone that has an interest in the Star Wars universe and especially...the Dark Side!
Gripping, educational, passionate.
I can only really compare it to Darth Plagueis. No other book has inspired so much of the interest in the dark side in comparison. Between these two it will be a thoroughly enjoyable education in the dark side. They both give it so much more depth then 'it is evil, don't', as well as show why the Jedi are held in such contempt. I'm inclined to agree with them...
He is a phenomenal listen, he brings such life to each of the characters its like listening to a movie. The only real issue I hear is all the Twi'lek (there are 3!) all sound the same, making me forget who was who from time to time, which is not a good thing as they are all very different.
Yes, once started it was hard to put down. If I didn't have to work I don't think I would have.
What are you reading my review for still?!?! Listen to it!! Its amazing!!
Brutal, Thrilling, Epic
Jonathan Davis is amazing, the way he brings this story to life is absolutely brilliant. No doubt this book would be an amazing read, but Jonathan had me addicted.
Several. The story of how Darth Bane came to be is not some walk in the park. There was pain, brutality, and turmoil. Any Star Wars fan who want's to see a story of the Dark wide would thoroughly enjoy this audio book.
If you're a Star Wars fan you won't be disappointed, if you're intrigued by the dark side, you NEED to listen to this audio book
