I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.
I'll listen to anything he does
I'd be willing, sure
YES!! And one that actually has more obiwan in it....
I gotta go with hmm.......... I was hoping for more Kenobi to be honest, and what was the A plot be more B Plot. It's called Kenobi!
I was disappointed that the Author & Lucas Books went for the easy Star Wars formula ending. It once again feels like what should have been a B plot, was really the main story after all.
Nein, niet, no. But he was good, and I would listen to him agin.
It was, but I feel bait & switched.

Somewhere in the middle.
Kenobi... duh, he was the only real character that had any... character.
This book made me cringe. Some of the characters where pretty cookie-cutter and very predictable.
If it wasn't for the superb narration by Johnathan Davis, I would have scored this audio book much lower. I can imagine if anyone bought the e-book or paperback version of this story they would have been pretty bored. Johnathan does a great job keeping you engaged and breathed life into an otherwise C- book.
I would absolutely recommend this book. It's a well written tale that walks a wonderful line between being a high noon-esque western and a really awesome Star Wars EU book.
I find myself reminded of "Darth Plagueis" and "Dark lord: The Rise of Darth Vader". "Kenobi" really does a brilliant job of exploring a single key character to the Star Wars mythology while also mixing in all the outside players perfectly. Which is a another key aspect of what I like about the other two books I mentioned.
I have. I've listened to "Star Wars: Dark Lord - The Rise of Darth Vader"," Darth Bane: Path of Destruction", "Star Wars Episode III" and am about to listen to "Maul: Lockdown". And Kenobi is the best of them all. Davis seems the more relaxed in this audio than any of those others. He handles the "other" character brilliantly And as good as his Kenobi was in "Revenge of the Sith", he absolutely embraces the Ewan McGregor style "Kenobi" for this tale. And may I say the production and sound effects mix is the best since "Darth Plagueis". The chapter cut sound effect is especially cool.

Great overall experience. Listening to this one book is what has not only gotten me back in the mood to listen to audiobooks but more importantly it has gotten me back into Star Wars and the EU-verse. Thank you, Audible. Thank you Random House Audio. Thank you, Mr. Lucas. Thank you too, Del Ray. Thanks for the good read.
Kenobi was a well paced story from start to finish, with elements of action and drama mixed nicely. We really get to dive deep into Obi-Won's soul, and learn more about his feeling towards Anakin, and the emotions he felt during and after Episode III.
Not so much a book, but a classic movie.....The Rifleman.
Jonathan Davis is the GO TO GUY to narrate Star Wars novels! He captures Obi-Won's voice and character to a tee, and he gives life to the assorted characters in the novel.
The ending for sure, after Obi-Won resolves the story's issues/conflicts, and grants himself a measure of forgivness for the actions of Episode II/III.
Being a huge Star Wars book fan I found this one rather plain. The narration was excellent. The story itself was just.... I didn't care for what was going on. The emotional interaction of the characters felt very forced. The back drop of Tatooine was the most exciting thing going on just because I could relate it to the feelings I had watching Episode IV for the first time. But for the love of me I could not give two cents about Tusken Raiders. Its not a bad book. I really don't enjoy saying anything about negative about it. But, I kept having to force myself to finish it. However, I did not return it. Some people really liked it, I found it to be mostly filler.
Davis is always a pleasure to listen to and when coupled with a great story it's a perfect Star Wars fit. This is a must read. It really helps you to FEEL what Kenobi was mentally going through after Order 66. Great book!
a fantastic story with amazing characters. to see Obi-Wan in this setting was great. i personally loved the inner stuggle of obiwans meditations and the great inspirational quotes that the book had to offer.
