If you like the new Bond movies, with their more realistic James Bond ... you will love this book. I really enjoyed it. Interesting story, good writing, and the performance was terrific. One of my first Audible.com books and I was very pleased. Sat in the car occasionally, because of the suspense of the book!
Nice to see a 'behind the scenes' work, giving some background to Tarkin. I was happily surprised at how much Darth Vader and Darth Sidious featured in this! Luceno really has the dark side down ... I loved Plagueus and Rise of Darth Vader. Now, I'm planning on reading everything else he has written.
Docked a star on performance because while the Tarkin and Sidious voices were great, the Darth Vader voice wasn't fantastic. But it doesn't really detract from the overall work.
The background on the Lost Sith was interesting, and I like that you get a little bit of Luke, Han and Leia.
Unbelievable voices and tone and such clear enunciation. I basically am listening to this series because I like 'hearing' Star Wars, even if the stories are just okay.
Someone Give Marc Thompson a raise, and a free Landspeeder or something. He is officially part of Star Wars lore.
Satisfying, surprising, and Fast.
The interplay between the main characters as well as the action.
Mr. Esparza's voice work was easy to listen to, and made the main characters particularly appealing and interesting.
Lots of great twists and turns ... a very fun read.
You'll love this. Great real world action, with a character you can get behind, and some clever and entertaining dialogue. I'm a fan ... excited to have three more books in the series.
Performance is terrific as well.
Loved this book ... and Marc Thompson is AMAZING with his voices and his energy. So good. I thought, as it was getting started ... oh, well, this will take a while to get into a major Sith battle or lightsaber fight. WRONG! By the early chapters some serious crap starts going down ... Very fun to listen to this ...
Wasn't sure what to expect, and to be honest didn't think that the cover art looked very good. But it's a really interesting story with lots of Sith mythology ... Really enjoyable. Jonathan Davis does a great job with the performance.
I loved the provocative subject, but also the very balanced approach the author takes to the question. I was surprised (pleasantly) at the quality and variety of useful background that was provided. Some great research was done here ... the narration was great. I also bought to printed book, so that I could mark and note some passages for review later.
I think the authors point is an important one.
Just the kind of spy novel I was hoping for ... intrigue, trade-craft, and all modernized in a way and context that feels so authentic!
I enjoyed the narration, but the story, it's twists and turns, are the hero here. It was really interesting to get the little little insights into the more practical matters of spying. Thanks Mr. Matthews! When is your next novel coming out?
Great story ... Love Mr. Zahn's writing, but Jonathan Davises narration is really captivating. Great fun!
Voice was slow, but pace of the narrative was slower. All manageable for a GREAT story, but I struggled to feel much sympathy for the hero.
