    Would you listen to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis again? Why?

    Yes. There was so much going on in the story it's worth a second listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: Darth Plagueis?

    Sidious' complete destruction of his master. I knew it was coming, but I'd prepared myself for an epic battle between master and apprentice, not complete domination.


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time hearing Mr. Davis perform.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Personal Quibble: Sifo Dyas, Mr. Davis pronounced it SEE-fo DI-as, cannonically (Episode II Movie) pronounced SI-fo DEE-as. It might just be me but I cringed every time it was said.

  • Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan

    There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan the most enjoyable?

    I've played both of the Knights of the Old Republic video games and it was nice to have the two stories brought together.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan?

    I did enjoy Lord Scourge's exit from the research facility. It reminded me of some of the antics from games I've played. Lots of fun.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    He did a good job of bringing each character to life and giving them individual personality. That can be hard to do when you're one person trying to create many individuals.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was surprised when Lord Scourge turned on the Jedi. I did not see that coming.
