Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan | [Drew Karpyshyn]

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan

There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

Publisher's Summary

There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it.

Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians -and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but the price of redemption was high. His memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear.

What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget. Somehow he stumbled across a terrible secret that threatens the very existence of the Republic. With no idea what it is, or how to stop it, Revan may very well fail, for he’s never faced a more powerful and diabolic enemy. But only death can stop him from trying.

    "Kinda short"

    It was good but I felt like it could've been a lot better and lot more in depth. I also know that this is based off of two other games while also being forced to be a prelude to a MMO which limits the directions this book could take. It sucks because I am a big fan of the old republic games and was expecting a plot just as good as the first Old Republic game to go with Revan the Prodigal Knight and that's probably what hurt the book the most. If you haven't at least looked up the over views of the last two games then you will be lost probably at the beginning but it would probably be more fun that a way.

    "Good!"

    This was good but was confusing at first. I believe the confusion occurred because I never played the video game.

    Story
    "Not another Revan fanboy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Marc Thompson is absolutely magic in all Star Wars audiobooks.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have actually put Revan, the books namesake, in the book. He is almost a complete non-entity in his own book.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Everything. His emotion, his fluidity, his passion, his clear love for Star Wars. He did a behind the scenes video of his performing process, how he comes up with voices that are ALL unique and vary from one to the other, records them on his phone for reference. He takes his job very seriously and the end product is otherworldly.


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

    I enjoyed the sort of backstory of the emperor. The leave enough out to keep him enigmatic, but enough to satisfy.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the listen, but one of the few Star Wars books that I wasnt fawning over.

    Story
    "Great Story, Great Narration, But Sound Effects?"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan the most enjoyable?

    The narration was fine in this audiobook but the sound effects and music ruined the experience for me. They are distracting and seemed superfluous. In addition, they play music from the movies at certain times during the story. I didn't like either addition. They seemed to be vying for my attention and taking away from the narration. There were also times when both music and narration were playing which made the problem even worse.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a great story! I really enjoyed it. Good characters, easy to understand action scenes, great descriptions.

    Story
    "Not about Revan :/"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Ya... But I wanted to hear about the bad ass Jedi/Sith Revan. Most of the book is about Sith & a little Jedi, but not Revan.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't call a book Revan & make it about other stuff :/

    Story
    "Very Well Written"
    What did you love best about Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan?

    The story was not full of needless action, but focused on the story of Revan after he defeated Malak. Thoroughly explains many potential gaps that might have been perceived by those who play the video games years ago.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Revan - This character is the focus of the The Old Republic.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Canderous: Gives him some rough edges yet remains humorous.


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

    Spoiler: When Revan removed his mask and watched the holovid of this wife and son


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely recommend this book.
