I love SciFi and Fantasy books. I love any Star Wars book. Some of my Fav's are Harry Potter, Eragon, Hunger Games, and Game of Thrones.
Struggle, Fear, Love.
That it shows how hard it was for a Jedi to be a Hermit!
Love this guy, can do great character voices!
Made me LMAO in parts! :)
I would have to say in the top 10.
It wasnt Kenobi going out to save the galaxy, just him dealing with normal everyday life.
I have liked all of Davis's preformaces. I don't the Star Wars world would be the same if he didnt do it.
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.
"Now that's a name I haven't heard for a long time."
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.
I loved this story. Very different than any other star wars book I've seen in atmosphere, but in a very refreshing way. Really great to see the gap in Obi Wans story filled. highly recommend it.
Sure. The plot was great, the twists were excellent, and the storytelling was engaging. It does a great job showing how Obi-Wan fits in with his new surroundings, while telling a great tale all on its own.
The chase scene through the Sarlacc Rumbles was very tense. I felt myself urging on Ben's Eopi to catch the dewback before something terrible happened. Very dramatic.
Besides doing a good job of imitating Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, he did a great job of carrying off the other voices too. If I had a complaint, it's that he might have made the farmers sound a little too oafish, but not distractingly so. He also did a great performance for pacing the story and setting the scene.
Definitely. I found myself grumbling upon reaching my destination and almost wishing my hour-long commute to work was just a few minutes longer. The stakes rising in the story make me curious how the whole drama was going to play out.
Sure, this story didn't really tell you much on a galactic scale, and it was limited in what it told you about Obi-Wan, but I felt that it had a human quality that most Star Wars stories lack. There were some portions of the story that never had a full pay off, like Obi-Wan's meditations or the future of the Tuskens (especially when you consider the Legacy comics that discuss Darth Krayt), but for some reason it didn't bother me. The story did what it set out to do, which is create a Star Wars version of Pale Rider. The fascinating thing about this particular take on the Pale Rider story is that we know the Stranger's backstory already, so we are rooting for the secret to stay safe.
Wether you are an avid Star Wars fan or just looking for an adventure this is the audiobook for you! The action, intrigue, and emotional roller coaster runs from beginning to end. Truly worth the Star Wars name.
Was never much of a reader before due to the fact i had to actually read. Now i'm discovering unexpected adventures with time to do other th
narrator was great, great to learn what Kenobi had been up to after his exile. fills in a few holes.
To be honest, i'm not the greatest fan of Kenobi but this book was pretty good.
