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.

    "Kenobi is awesome."

    It is enjoyable to finally hear a story line starting to be dedicated to Kenobi. I feel this book is an excellent introduction to his life after the fall of the Jedi. There were times in this book that took my breath away and also made my heart ache. Please keep the stories about Kenobi coming. I would love to see Disney do something with the Kenobi story. I thoroughly enjoy this book and have listened to it five times and I am starting on my sixth.

    "Incredible."

    One of the best books I've listened to in a long time. A gripping tale, I was hooked from start to finish. Obi-Wan is my favorite character, and getting to learn a little more about his time on Tatooine was a treat. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Star Wars.

    "Excellent storytelling all around."

    Absolutely loved it. I hope they pull from this story for the upcoming Kenobi movie. As others have said it has a western feel but it is Tatooine and give a deeper sense of what life would be like growing up there.

    "Good a Story. Not enough Obi-Wan."

    Narrator was great. For a book named Kenobi, there's not really a lot of him, but the story was still pretty interesting.

    Mr. Miller's story woven by Mr. Davis 's narration deftly develops the characters of this epic Star Wars story. I particularly loved the contemplative interludes. A must read!🙏🏻😊🙏🏻

    "Great Book"

    I was already in Obi-Wan Kenobi fan before I read this book and now I'm an even bigger fan. The way the story was set up an old west-style kept me wanting to listen to it all the way to the end. The only gripe I have about it is that there wasn't a big scene about Kenobi finding out that Anakin / Vader was still alive (even though there's a scene already like that at the end of the rise of Darth Vader book). Honestly in my opinion I would say this book was better than Darth Plagueis.

    This story easily takes the listener back to the original stories and characters. It's easy to see the scenes and backdrops and characters of the original Star Wars movies. The story was intriguing and really captured your attention.

    Canon or not, this story is the best Kenobi story ever done. This could have been his stand alone movie. Always a favorite in Legends.

    "Great story for Obi-Wan fans!"

    Let me just start off by saying Jonathan Davis is one of the best narrators of Star Wars novels next to Mark Thompson. if you enjoyed him in Darth Bane trilogy then you'll love him as Kenobi. This story takes place shortly after the events of RotS. I never thought I'd actually care about the other Characters in the book but you end up absolutely loving them! a good read for any Star Wars fan

    "Suprisingly enjoyable"

    Jonathan Davis does a great job narrating this quite simple, almost rustic story. The opening hour is a challenge to get through but it's worth the wade as it has heart and highlights Kenobi's noble intentions for those around him and the future.

    "The story of Kenobi continues"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kenobi to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print one, but the narrator brought it to life wonderfully.


    Would you recommend Kenobi to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would certainly recommend this. Jonathan Davis's narration is compelling. He absolutely excels in channeling Ewan Mcgregor's version of the character. The tone is perfect and I had no problem imagining that actor saying the words. He also differentiates other characters throughout very well.

    As far as the story, it's a tale that niftily utilises what little we found out about the Jundland Wastes, the Sandpeople and even the Krayt Dragon. My main criticism of the story is that the first two hours are spent mostly establishing other characters and Obi Wan is not really mentioned.
    Once all the pieces are in place, a mystery unfolds, centered around the local people's defence force against Sandpeople, gangsters and even the Sandpeople themselves.

    This is one of the better Star Wars EU books in that it doesn't seek to replicate action and dialogue we've seen before, it lightly references events we may have seen, but doesn't dwell on them.

    It doesn't give much information about what characters look like, so you'll have to use your imagination there, but it does well in fleshing them out through dialogue and their actions.

    There is jeopardy, but possibly not as much as you might imagine. I felt myself growing quite angry at the main villain once he was revealed- he and his 'victims' are well painted enough to care about.

    It ends in a fairly satisfying way and I would be interested in reading further stories by the same author and narrator.


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

    I listened to his narration of James Luceno's Rise of Darth Vader book. That was okay, but the story and characters were mostly stereotypical and didn't give much room for real drama.


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

    two or three sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to hearing Jonathan Davis reprise his Obi Wan in other stories. It's the next best thing to actually having Ewan McGregor reading the story!

    If you could sum up Kenobi in three words, what would they be?

    Some interesting snippets


    Would you be willing to try another book from John Jackson Miller? Why or why not?

    I'd read another book by this author. I enjoyed the balance of story and description.


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    The voice suited the story and felt appropriate.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No moments that moved me but I really enjoyed the pieces that added to background knowledge of the broader Star Wars universe.

    "Interesting change"
    What did you like most about Kenobi?

    A nice story that focused on matters that aren't of galactic proportion.


    What other book might you compare Kenobi to, and why?

    None that I've personally read but I'm sure there are other non-starwars books similar in style.


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

    I've listened to Jonathan Davis's performances for the Bane trilogy and this was just as good in my personal opinion, my favourite narrator so far.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the hand of some well deserved justice got dealt.


    Any additional comments?

    A welcome change from the standard star wars books which usually focus on issues that concern either the whole galaxy, orders or star systems. Instead it was a book focusing on specific people and there rather insignificant life's as far as the galaxy is concerned, we get a book that focuses on the smaller things in the galaxies and yet in some cases was possibly more interesting to read/listen to.
