I love the story. I been reading all the dune series that Frank Herbert wrote and been doing the audio books too. The worst narration was Dune Messiah. This narration has the same problems as Dune Messiah. Instead of using differ narrators for differ characters they just had them all narrate random chapters. Like they are all practicing narrating and not taking this one seriously. A message to whoever produces this audio book: We do not want random narrations that are disjointed. We want a male narrator doing male voices and a female one doing the female voices. Quit messing up our audio books. These narrators are great but who ever produced this is dumb as all can be.
This book is a must read especially since the movie is coming out this year. I was hooked in the book where I finish it faster than most of my other audio books. I didnt think it was the best Sci Fi I ever but it was entertaining. My only problem with the book was they used several differ narrators that didnt make any sense on how they were using them. It starts off with a male who poorly imitates a child's voice. Then half way a female is used to narrate a female's characters chapter. Then at the end they combine both of them in a male and female dialogue that should of been used the whole time. Why dont all audio book use a male narrator and female narrator when a male and a female is talking. It would be way more immersive. Instead they just flirt with the idea in this book and it makes you wish they didn't even try to experiment with it.
I heard a whole lot of bad reviews on this title by fans of the video game on Amazon.com. For some fans of the game only a 3 or 6 book trilogy would only be worthy enough to flesh out every detail of the story. Since the intention of the book is to reveal the unfinished story of what could of been kotor 3, in one book, and to connect the story to old republic, this author did a fine job at that. If you are not a Kotor fan this story would not make sense to you. The performance of the narrator is great as you would expect from this narrator and the sound effects and music adds to the imagination. This book satisfies my curiosity of Revan and the Exile and had some epic scenes. It bridges the connection of Kotor 1 and 2 as well.Maybe if I had higher expectations of the book I might of not liked it but from what I knew about it, and my expectation of what it is, I found it a very good book.
I could see why this story gain made a whole southern revival in US when it came out. I am a 28 your old guy from Texas who once lived in Georgia. After reading this book it made me want to go back and visit Georgia. Its a story of war, love, business and the strength of a passionate women. There is not many books written these days that can match the perfection of the writing style. The narrator of this book made the voices nice and realistic. It helped capture the magic of the book. I was able to forget easily that one person was narrating the whole book. I wish there were more books of this caliber.
This is the first wild west book i ever read. Been enjoying the movies and always been curious about the genre. Most of my patients who were old timers told me to read this book. I thought it was slow at first but once it picks up it was an awesome ride. I love Gus the best character. I felt he made the whole book. His wild west pragmatic wisdom's were very insightful and felt like it was a perfect commentaries of the time period. The book had a touch of realism too on how harsh living in the open west could be. Life and death are always at edge. After reading the book though I could not get into the miniseries. Maybe it felt to campy and outdated or this audio narration of Gus was so much better than Robert Duvall.
