Well. Yes I have listened to Clone Wars Gambit three times and I am going to repeat them some more because these two books are my very first audible experience and it is exciting. The voice acting is great, living up the characters and the pace is tight and engaging. However the story doesn't stand out and I feel somewhat disappointing about the ending sections. After 20 hours detailed story portrait, I expected something special: a final picture that put all the pieces together, but there is no more than repetitive fighting and suddenly the reinforcements arrived and the story ended.
The storyline is quite predictable: bad guys have evil plans and good guys struggle and prevail, except that the length of the story to tell a usual Jedi mission is truly surprising. Take another view of thinking, this also indicates that there are hours of dialogues and descriptions of thought and feeling of the characters, and we won't miss and wander what they are thinking in every situation. To people who love intense arguments and care about the inner state of a Jedi, the approach is good.
There are a lot of Jedi works in the story I consider miraculous, and too many miracles makes it unconvincing. For example in the beginning of the story, Grievous' army totally jammed the communication system of the Republic army, and the Republic army led by Anakin and Obiwan managed to win the battle. Hmn, with Jedi, we can ignore all the principles of wars. Later on, the two Jedi will go further continuously fighting hundreds of droids, force curing people, manipulate all sorts of machines without taking food and rest for several days. Okay, because they are Jedi, nothing is impossible.
This is only half of the story of Clone Wars Gambit. The whole story consist of Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth and Clone Wars Gambit: Siege. It's really a long mission.
