Meh, I love his Obewan, but it pierces into other character voices, Marc Thompson is the standard bearer, but I can deal with Gurner.
I'm wondering if the author had a word count quota, there were so many alliterations, it got annoying and then distracting. Plush pleasurable palisades, costly clouded confusion, deep darkening dimples, bereft broken beginnings, gaggle of grubby, it got a bit ridiculous. Other than that, nice pass of time.
Adult, SW, Finally!
Excellent, loved him in Snow Crash also
Man on man, this book rocks, its the first maybe second that has what I feel is more of an adult slant to it and i could not have been better in my mind. More like this please. After Red Harvest I was kinda like eh but it was an interesting twist in the SW univierse, after this book, I'm realing for more Dark side stories from this guy (Joe Schreiber) Seems telling SW stories with a dark side bent is his niche in this universe.
Shes no Marc Thompson, but it was cool as non Thompson Star wars stories go
I almost tossed my phone out my car window ( I listen in the car mostly ) with how this story ended and came rushing here to post a stark raving mad review then reread the stories description and realized it was a 'book 1'. Here's hoping that book two further explains or at least picks up on the all the open tangents that this book left. I was literally jaw dropped by the way it ended, not so much in the specific actions, but how many loose ends were left untied.
The only problem i really have with the story over all is it didn't really leave me with a great yearning to know more, sure if they produce more of this line I'll buy to finish or view further along the story line, but I'm not clamoring for more out of the gate. It was just barely interesting enough to make me come back for more, Not like Maul:Lockdown, which had so many twist and turns but wrapped up nicely and still had me wishing there was more at the end.
I figured this book would just wrap itself up and end nicely, but it ended on an opening which didn't at feel succinct to the story it just dragged me through. Something happens at the end that you would think would be the main characters primary focus after what shes just had to do and the first thing she does is leave the planet?!? Really... Pick this up only if you have a few credits lying around and you've read/listened to pretty much everything else (which is where I am - with the unabridged SW versions anyway)...
Interesting plot lines, some a bit obvious but never-the-less good listening.
When you find out the Fettman was involved all along!
Thompson's performances are what initially got me interested in audio books. His ability to grasp the movie characters voices in incredible, You feel as if you are listening to the characters from the movies!
I laughed at parts and some make you a bit misty
Only thing i didn't like was noone from the 'good' team died. Which I know is cliche for the series of star wars but come on, at least 1 persona should have could have died without ruining the franchise line :D
