    "good storyline poor character portrayal"

    I listen to a lot of audio books because of the amount of time I spend on the road. I have enjoyed the fate of the Jedi unabridged series so much I thought I would give the clone war series a try. The storyline is good but the dialog between characters especially the Jedi are so hard to listen to sometimes I had to cut it off. Other than that if you are a star wars fan and have a free credit it’s not a bad choice.... if you have already listened to everything else.

    "If you buy this one, you must buy the sequel"
    Any additional comments?

    This is only half of the story of Clone Wars Gambit. The whole story consist of Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth and Clone Wars Gambit: Siege. It's really a long mission.

    "Karen Miller should not be allowed to write."

    Just terrible. I'd give it 1 star, but gave it an extra just because it's Star Wars. The author is awful and has another stinker (Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Wild Space) in the Star Wars universe.
    Do people this bad have deals in place that allow them to write more books after the ones they've already written get largely bad reviews (which means it's not just me)? I got this without noticing the author's name. Otherwise I would have avoided it.

    "Some merit but lacks panache"

    So I'm a certifiable Star Wars junkie. Not the worlds biggest fan but I've probably read about 40 or expanded SW novels over the years. Some are great, many are ok, some are downright atrocious. This is in the ok category.

    What I liked:
    - Really liked the dynamic between Obi Wan and Anakin. Miller actually does the best job I've read of the many authors who've tried to tackle this tandem. She gives the relationship depth that most other books lack.
    - I really like how she portrayed the emotional disaster that is Anakin. This is a big criticism of the Clone Wars. While the TV show provides glimpses of Skywalker's psychology that leads him to the Dark Side, Miller does an excellent job of portraying this character's many emotional foibles that eventually lead to his fall. I see some people writing this is over done but I appreciated the opportunity of exploring his instability.
    - This is one of the more gritty SW novels I've read. Kinda reflects the SW universe where Han shot first (if you're a fan you'll know what I mean)

    What I didn't like:
    - While the advantages of writing a story about Obi Wan and Anakin are obvious, it's also really tricky because there are so many other stories and SW cannon around these characters. Yoda and Bail Organa too. The author takes liberties and this results in much gnashing of teeth. You could have wrote this story with a couple of secondary characters and still had a fine story but not creating inconsistencies with the ample material that covers these two main characters.
    - The overall story plodded along and was predicable. It definitely didn't hook me in.
    - Why are all bad guys so stupid in SW (Thrawn excepted). Despite having an ultra secure facility, the Jedi basically have full run of the place. They crawl through several hundred meters of air vents - really! Air vents is gotta be the oldest trick in the book! But I guess if you think about it, this is exactly what Han and Luke did in the first movie on the Death Star, but I digress. Sigh... SW isn't perfect.
    - The author relies way too much upon Anakin's technical skills; we know that he's handy with fixing things, but some of the situations he resolves with this skill verge on silly.

    So in a nutshell, it was ok read. Certainly not the greatest SW novel I've read, but an better than average attempt that gets the Obi Wan-Anakin relationship done right.

    BTW: the narrator was great. I think it's the gentleman from the Clone Wars. A nice touch!
