    The Clone Wars have yet to erupt when Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth petitions the Senate for support of a singularly ambitious undertaking. Six Jedi Masters and 12 Jedi Knights, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, and 50,000 men, women, and children, will embark on a mission to contact intelligent life and colonize undiscovered worlds. But the mission is secretly being orchestrated by an unlikely ally: the evil Sith Lord Darth Sidious.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    For driving in a car and "reading" a book at the same time, yes.


    Has Star Wars turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no, still love 'em.


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    Pretty good character variation, Mr. Davis is a great reader and his voice keeps me interested. That said, the sound effects can be too loud or add to the confusion instead of clarifying. I say spend more time getting the book's tension and arc flowing better instead of adding the lame song at the beginning and all those sound effects. I want the whole book. I hate to have it abridged. If you focus on the voice and characters coming from it, I will sit through the 11-15 hrs it takes, feel cheated by the 4-6 abridged gives us.


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

    No, but usually every day or every other day I'd get a good chunk out of it.


    Any additional comments?

    Abridging a book sucks! A lot! There are dozens of them! I hate this! Make less books that would have the whole thing in there, cover to cover, instead of throwing tons of half (assed) books on our digital shelves. Want whole story! Can't exactly read the paper copy, want whole audio books!
