I love hearing Mr. Card speak whenever I can and hearing speak openly with the man who records his books and gave him his first writing job was a profound experience.
Selfishly, mr. Card says that listening to a book counts the same if not more than reading it. Makes me feel better about all the books I've
This presentation did not have scenes and the whole of it was enjoyable.
Yes and I did!
I would not. As a short story the plot pays off at the end. The begging however is quite consuming and literally just drops you into the action. More work on the front end would have made it more enjoyable.
Not really sure who the characters were. We didn't get a lot of introduction or insight into them.
No. The voices were all pretty similar, especially the two "Main" characters.
Not really, outside of earning time on the audible app.
Glad it was free.
As a preview copy I would not.
Cool insights from the author.
It is only one scene in the preview version.
Very cool excerpt. really entices you to get the full version.
John Jackson Miller initially wrote this as a comic book story, an area where he excels. Jedi, isolated from the universe. The decision was then made to turn the script into a novel, and it delivers. This is a great look at Kenobi at his finest, balanced between being a warrior, diplomat, and trickster. Another fun thing is that Miller does tie all of the threads together. AS a reader of Star Wars novels and comics you will be screaming for the characters to put two and two together. Fantastic outing!
Kenobi was great, but "Plug Eye" was fantastic.
His performance as the Hutt accountant was really unique.
The Hooded Stranger
Intense, dark, action.
Darth Maul of course takes the cake. This story really brings out the wide array of talents he possesses and really drives home why he is the most dangerous being in the galaxy.
An excellent performance. He really evokes the dark nature of the story.
Parts of Schreiber's story are very...disturbing. He really evokes fear and darkness.
Schreiber's stories are what I would expect from the EU. Something fun to read without feeling like this is the main story and where does it fit into cannon.
Divergent audio presentation sits about in the middle of performances. A good ready, no effects.
The choosing ceremony and the aftermath resonate with everyone who has had to make choices in their life.
Divergent, the Choice is Yours
An excellent start. Can't wait to read the rest.
This story is so funny. Getting to hear it for free from such a high quality troup was awesome.
Bunbury. the freedom of "Bunburrying" would be refreshing!
When the two fiances meet each other and go back and forth. Please! I was rolling on the floor.
Again the scene above just made me laugh so hard. Tea service for two? Yes please!
Hilarious play, and it is free to boot. Thank you audible, and Mr. Wilde.
All of the characters regressed to a point below where they had been at any point in the story. Then as if it makes things better all of the main plot points are given to us as updates since the main character is unconcious.
Continue the natural progression of the characters. Resolve the story.
Yes. She does a good job giving them their own voice and cadence.
Very very dissapointed.
Best to stop at Catching Fire and write your own ending. I got the distinct impression the author has some personal issues that are unresolved and so could not have the characters resolve them.
This is a book that I didn't want to put down and didn't have to with the audio format.
This book contains elements of several other stories comined in unique ways. Pieces of "V For Vendetta" and "1984" combine with classic romance stories for a unique experience.
Her presentation of the younger charachters and the boys were ok, but her presentation as the main character was lacking significantly.
Absolutely. It draws you in and doesn't let you go.
Can't wait to read the next one.
I loved this book. As someone who self identifies as an Intorvert this book was liberating and full of "Aha" moments. Excellent suggestions on how to achieve sucess without pretending to be someone I am not.
Embarassingly enough the moment where she discusses that Introverts are prone to sweating more was one of those "Aha" moments.
She brought a sense of personality to a book that could have turned into a repetive excercise.
It made me feel liberated. As if who I feel that I am is ok.
Read this book. If you are an introvert it will liberate you. If you are an extrovert it will help you to understand us.
This is an excellent lead in to the events of the Phantom Menace. It is an action packed look behind Darth Maul and shows how driven his character really is.
This book is very much in the vein of other Star Wars novels especially movie lead in's.
He truly brings out hte unique inflection of each of the characters.
A good book for fans of the Star Wars Saga.
