Kenobi: Star Wars | [John Jackson Miller]

Kenobi: Star Wars

Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

Publisher's Summary

The Republic has fallen. Sith Lords rule the galaxy. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi has lost everything….Everything but hope.

Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

Known to locals only as "Ben," the bearded and robed offworlder is an enigmatic stranger who keeps to himself, shares nothing of his past, and goes to great pains to remain an outsider. But as tensions escalate between the farmers and a tribe of Sand People led by a ruthless war chief, Ben finds himself drawn into the fight, endangering the very mission that brought him to Tatooine.

Ben - Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, hero of the Clone Wars, traitor to the Empire, and protector of the galaxy's last hope - can no more turn his back on evil than he can reject his Jedi training. And when blood is unjustly spilled, innocent lives threatened, and a ruthless opponent unmasked, Ben has no choice but to call on the wisdom of the Jedi - and the formidable power of the Force - in his never-ending fight for justice.

    "Mixed value"

    The book makes this a somewhat difficult review, because to me there are some excellent aspects and there are some that didn't work so well for me. I came away with a feeling that the author couldn't decide on how to do a few things, so tried all of them. I came to like the points of view *about* Kenobi, providing a new view of a popular character. And I quite enjoyed the isolated introspections *from* Kenobi, which I think were superbly voiced. But just when I started to think that's how the book would continue, the approach changed somewhat dramatically, to me, and the book fell into a more predictable, familiar rut with a few minor but not really valuable surprises thrown in. For a book addressing something which could have been crucial to the broader story arc, and certainly is a time of interest generally overlooked by other Star Wars media, I think it doesn't entirely live up to the promise -- although there are some excellent excerpts which provide a good, believable insight into Kenobi's inner struggles.

    "Hmm."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I gotta go with hmm.......... I was hoping for more Kenobi to be honest, and what was the A plot be more B Plot. It's called Kenobi!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was disappointed that the Author & Lucas Books went for the easy Star Wars formula ending. It once again feels like what should have been a B plot, was really the main story after all.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nein, niet, no. But he was good, and I would listen to him agin.


    Was Kenobi worth the listening time?

    It was, but I feel bait & switched.

    Story
    "Great little drama, not very important to SWU"

    The story itself should not be compared to rest of Star Wars canon. It is like a little drama to enjoy that occurred after episode 3. It is very well voiced and Star Wars sound effects make it an enviable experience. The attempt to make the Tusken Raiders was not successful in my opinion. Seeing obiwan in action again is always exciting for a Star Wars nerd. I was always fascinated by his character so it was a no brainier for me.

    "Didn't expect it to be this good"
    Would you listen to Kenobi again? Why?

    Got to admit I really enjoyed this book! Written with a little more mature voice than some of the Star Wars books. And the narrator did an excellent job, with good characterizations and great voice.

    "A Tale Well Told"

    I'll be brief, fellow traveler: If you yearn to return to the wonders of Star Wars this well-told story will transport you willingly with the speed of a land cycle to a world familiar and yet new and in some ways undiscovered. The audio production of this novel transcends the written word to capture our imagination not unlike a first rate radio drama of long ago. If you are a Star Wars fan then you will throughly enjoy this experience. Onward!

    "Great book for a great character!"

    Obi won is one of my favorite characters in all of Star Wars and this book does him justice! It also touches on the history and culture of the sand people which I found extremely interesting. The narrator did an excellent job with the reading. Would recommend to anyone!

    "Legendary storytelling"

    This is an amazing story. I loved going back to Tattoine and hearing a story I've always wanted to hear about Obi Wan Kenobi and his time watching over Luke.
