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.
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.
I am Louis Chou. I type in data forms every day, that's quite a boring job. I wish I can go live in the US someday when I have enough money.
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.
