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.

Excellent story and characters.

Very well done and engrossing. Characters and voices are spot-on, especially Obi Wan Kenobi's - sounds just like Ewan McGregor.

Jonathan Davis *is* Kenobi

Fantastic narration, excellent story. Although as one friend described it, the story will leave you with lightsaber blue balls...

Excellent

Davis is always a pleasure to listen to and when coupled with a great story it's a perfect Star Wars fit. This is a must read. It really helps you to FEEL what Kenobi was mentally going through after Order 66. Great book!

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.

Disappointed

Was hoping for a more action packed telling of missions and what made kenobi who he was. Came across as really dreary and didn't connect with it at all.

More Obi-Wan! Less Tusken Raiders!

Would you listen to Kenobi again? Why?

I think that I would if I needed a Star Wars fix, however I really REALLY wish it focused more on character development and less random side plots about tusken raiders and local people who seem more like stereotypes because the author had not put time into them. <br/><br/>There is so much potential with this story... Obi-Wan alone, thinking Anakin is dead, he has lost the entire Jedi Order, his life is in pieces. But in this story we only get a few lines about this if we're lucky. I honestly would have loved an entire monologue from Obi-Wan rather than have this pushed aside for flashy action scenes.<br/><br/>Also awkward that Obi-Wan's love interest (which I think actually would have worked and been very interesting for this moment in his life) is called Ani..? What was the writer thinking? I mean, I get they wanted to bring up a reminder, but seemed a very odd way to do it.<br/><br/>I don't like it when Star Wars stories feel so constricted, there is plenty of room to be more in depth. But maybe there is a constraint that LucasFilm puts on the author? I don't know... this book could have been so much more!<br/><br/>Giving it 4 stars anyway, because I guess I can live with it. Any book that focuses on Obi-Wan is good enough for now.

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.
