The highs were high! But the lows, very low.

The opening chapter created a ton of excitement! This was needed, because the 3.5 hours that followed were slow, boring, forced and really not needed. It seemed like there was a great story outlined, but Johnson needed filler to make it long enough to be called a novel. It's unfortunate that this book was either rushed, or just not thought out, because Ashoka is one of my favorite characters. Raised in the force by Master Plo Koon and trained and fought directly under Anakin Skywalker, Ashoka is an extremely powerful force user! The new canon on saber crystals was interesting, and as always Senator Organa was a welcomed addition! One timeline question that confused me is that Ashoka is just joining the rebellion, yet Antilles is already a part of it. Rebels has Ashoka already intertwined, and possibly dead, when Antilles defects from the Empire and joins the rebellion. This confused me. As I said in my title, the highs were high, which luckily kept me going, as the last 2 hours was very enjoyable. Ashley Eckstein has a very welcoming voice, probably because we already know her as Ashoka, which added an extra star to my overall review. Just like Aftermath, the inner plot was rushed, and it's a real shame. More meat, less lumpy potatoes. Lol. Give it a listen, but know that only about a third of the book is actually worth it, the rest is pointless dribble.

An act of kindness is a revolutionary act

In an era of darkness, kindness is a revolutionary act. After the events of Revenge of the Sith, Ahsoka is trying to find herself and her place in the age of the Empire. I really enjoyed the audiobook especially since Ashley gets to read her character's story. The story itself plays out like an episode of The Clone Wars. There are interludes like in the Aftermath series, however these actually have something to do with Ahoska or the characters she has interacted with over the years. There are hints that the Empire is working on something big, although it is never directly mentioned. There are also appearances by characters that play an important part in the formation of the rebellion. The book leaves open other adventures with Ahsoka which I hope they do. This is probably my third favorite book after Lost Stars and Bloodlines.

Better Audible Version Than Book Version

Review from a 13 year old Ahsoka fan: “Ahsoka is a story that explains the time period between Order 66 and Ahsoka joining the rebellion. It starts off with Ahsoka on the run from the newly established empire, which forces her to the outer rims of the galaxy. Searching for somewhere to settle down and lay low she stumbles upon Thabeska, a planet inhabited by the Fardi family. Getting to know the family well Ahsoka notices something extraordinary among one of the family members before being forced to leave due to imperial arrival. Later landing on Raada a moon for farming, and getting to know the small amount of inhabitants there. Ahsoka quickly finds herself troubled when once again the empire arrives and causes all kinds of troubles on the small moon. While worried about what to do to help her friends Ahsoka teams up with old allies. But new enemies are following not too far behind. In the end Ahsoka is forced to make hard decisions while only herself to rely on in the process.

Ahsoka Tano in the said book was almost on point, only being a little too timid to be the Ahsoka we fans truly love. Other characters like Miara or Kaeden were a little too bland and underdeveloped along with the rest of the Raada inhabitants. Another thing that was quite annoying was the switching in the point of views later in the book after focusing only on Ahsoka for the first part.

Positive was the nice and steady plot; it was great to have a simple one instead of it being packed with too much action. Another thing that was on point was that it felt like a Star Wars type of setting, including the empire and how they reacted to different events.

In all, the book was fine but in many ways could have been better, and doing fine on living up to the high standards that were placed upon it. Interesting to read but small errors character wise.

Definitely the Audible version was worth it to hear Ashley Eckstein narrate.

So much potential thrown away...

What disappointed you about Star Wars: Ahsoka?

The characters beside Ahsoka are poorly introduced, barely described, and feel so very unimportant. It feels like they were thrown out there for drama building, but since the author couldn't make me care about them, it just felt boring. Honestly, they had 15 years of undefined Ahsoka lore they could create, and they chose this?? It's like this book was rushed in writing and production...

What three words best describe Ashley Eckstein’s performance?

She had fun. We can feel that she really liked doing this. That's a good thing. The bad thing is that her range of voices is very limited... so pretty much every characted sounded like Ahsoka. Plus, her narrating shifted depending on what was going on and who was doing what... and it felt weird. The direction wasn't the best.

What character would you cut from Star Wars: Ahsoka?

Every farmer. Also every chapter that had nothing to do with the story. It felt as if they were added to compensate for the boring story. Prehaps with those cuts they could have taken the time to write more character building around the bad guys.

Any additional comments?

I really like Ahsoka, the character. The book, however, is very bad. I don't understand how it got so many 5 stars... If you've already purchased it, be patient... the story gets a little bit interesting at chapter 25 of 32... but not that much.

Really enjoyed this.

The fact the Ashely narrates the entire thing makes it that much better because you are literally getting to hear Ahsoka tell her story. Filled with extra small inserts from other well loved characters that I won't spoil but that truly add to the entire story. In my opinion this is a great set up prior to her appearance in Rebels and yes you do finally find out how where she got her light sabers from. There is background music and sound added through out the entire story which really add to a much fuller experience compared to reading through pages. Well done E.K & Ashley.

Lack of Depth cont for new Star Wars books

I feel like every new canon Star Wars books (minus Dark Disciple and the Tarkin book, which a great) lack any really depth. The books seem great for young Star Wars fans but are missing character development and heavy plots like the Thrawn, Bane or Jedi academy book.

Perfect

That's exactly what was needed to join the clone wars with rebels. I feel like they can write another book or two in this devastating timeline as well. Fingers crossed.

Not worthy

This is a very basic and poorly written novel not deserving of the character it represents. It's almost seems that because the character is a young female they wrote it to appeal only to tweens. No depth whatsoever. I did like the narrators voice as it is the original Ahsoka from the series but even that can't save it.

A star wars story for the ages

A fantastic story brilliantly performed by Ashley Eckstein the one and only Ahsoka, although I already knew the basics of the story as it's been out for about 4 years already I was blown away by hearing it in full, the emotions, the connections and the depth of it all, linked so well to Ahsokas past and future, intertwined with characters new and old brought together in a quintessentially star wars way, any decent star wars fan who hasn't read or heard it yet NEEDS to do so, it had me laughing out loud at times and almost tearing up at others, I can see myself re-listening again in week or so already.

Amazing voice actor but he plot wasn’t as good

I liked this novel, but I mean I like all Star Wars novels. Ashley did an AMAZING job on the voice acting here. Her voice was easy and soft to listing to. The plot wasn’t as good tho... it felt like the plot wasn’t very exiting and didn’t really lead up to anything special. But if you likes Star Wars I definitely think you should listen/read it. I don’t think you will regret it.

Ahsoka my opinions

I enjoyed this book however I feel that ahsoka was never really tested. I mean she took out an inquisitor as if they were nothing and I never felt an over riding emotional attachment with one of my favourite characters from the extended universe. That saying I would highly recommend this to everyone good listen but so close to being great

Very good

Very good from Ashley and a great book, well written and interesting.
More for those who want Star Wars lore than just a original book, but I love it, would want a bit more action, and more time covered during the book. Other than that? Perfect

AMAZING

Finished this book in like 3 days. I absolutely loved learning about Ahsoka after Order 66 and how she can fit into the Galaxy under the Empire. Hearing this story read by the voice of Ahsoka was the cherry on top.

Ashoka the best Jedi in clone wars

Ashoka the book is a amazing way to get to sleep 💤
I am a very big fan of Ashoka and if you are then the book can help you understand stand Ashoka more.
The book is amazingly written by E.K. Johnston and narrated by Ashley Eckstein who actually played Ashoka in Clone Wars
I highly suggest this book to you if you aren’t getting much sleep you will get to sleep instantly

Great for young adults

I enjoyed this audiobook. It’s cool that Ashley, the voice of Ahsoka from the shows, reads this. She’s does ok at trying different voices for the characters but she’s no expert.

A couple of peeves are 1) So, so many sentences end with “Ahsoka said”. It gets a bit tedious hearing that over and over. 2) Ashley doesn’t pronounce the “d” in words like “didn’t”, “couldn’t”, “wouldn’t”, etc.. It didn’t ruin the book for me but it was a little grating.

Nonetheless, a great Star Wars book that fills in a bit of story that is missed from the shows and movies. I recommend it!

Exceptional Story Voice & Good Story

This was a good book that I would happily recommend to other people, the background sounds that went with each scene really helped with the emersion into the story.

I also really enjoyed the voice actor of Ahsoka in the animated series being the same voice of this story.

loved it

It was amazing to have the voice actor read the book about her character Ashoka! She did a great job portraying the different characters and I absolutely love how it adds in the sound effects and music from Star wars. Will defiantly be checking out more books in the series. Hope they write another book for Ashoka. Still so much to tell from the end of this book till her appearance in the resistance tv show.
