Jonathan Davis is a marvellous narrator and his story telling style is captivating and keep you listening! One of my favorites for sure!
Fantastic! The story is great and the narrator super talented; he does Ben's voice perfectly, and it's easy to forget that one man is doing all these voices, even the women! A great story for anyone who is interested in more about Obi-Wan or Star Wars in general, with some compelling twists and really solid character development. Definitely recommend. ^^
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was easy to imagine the Tatooine landscape and feel like I was immersed in the scene. The character portrayals by the narrator allowed me to more quickly relate to them and identify subtleties in the dialogue. I listened to this book over a long drive and while I remember pointing my car to go from here to there and back again, I scarcely recall the details of my journey. Very engaging.
First off, the title is misleading. This book is not solely focused on kenobi, he is actually more of a minor character. But the story and narration is very entertaining and are far from being dull like other Star Wars books. The writing and character dialogue seemed almost perfect for a movie. I was expecting something more focused on Obi Wan and his life up to a new hope, but the narration made up for it by really painting a picture and keeping things exciting. I would recommend this to people even though it's not canon, it's a great listen and a fun story. 4/5 stars
The story takes a mysterious Star Wars character, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and fleshes him out, giving him more humanity than we are accustomed to seeing in him. I have often wondered how he could possibly have lived on Tatooine without rendering the types of service he was accustomed to as a Jedi Knight. This story answers that question. It is a wonderful story, presented in a captivating way. Thank you very much!
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....
when he does kanobi's voice it sounds very close to him from the movie and really makes me happy. the story its self is rather good. I love this story. to the point where I have listened to it I can't even count how many times.
I would listen to this story again and again. Obi Wan Kenobi and his story is legendary. This story delves deep into the isolation and sadness that the man is feeling after everyone and everything he knew has been lost. Upon reading other reviews, I have to shake my head. I don't think many have taken the time to grasp that as a Jedi Master in hiding, Kenobi isn't about a lightsaber wielding defender of the Republic. This is about a hero in hiding while trying to find normalcy and solace.
Kenobi versus the Krayt Dragon
Obi Wan Kenobi. Listening to this story it is easy to visualize and blend the hero portrayed by Ewan McGregor and the voice over from The Clone Wars
The ending: Not only the fate of the villain, but the meditation of Kenobi. This part captured his true loneliness, but also his contentment.
Enjoy this book, but come into it without looking for the lightsaber clash and the space battles. Open your mind to the story of a "samurai" in exile who knows that his exposure could cost more than his life, but the life of the one he has sworn to protect.
Where the Star Wars films deal with events that shape the history of the Galaxy, Kenobi deals with events in the lives of a handful of ordinary moisture farmers on Tatooine. It's interesting to see, though, that Obi-Wan doesn't care any less about the people involved, even though these must seem like relatively petty matters to a man who has seen and done what he has. It's interesting to get to know part of what made the Obi-Wan Kenobi from the prequels into the Old Ben that we loved from Episode four.
Voice acting was probably the best part. The narrator did a beautiful impression of Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan.
