Great story

I don't know why people are complaing, this was a great book to listen to. This series gives a lot of insight to Kenobi and Skywalker. I don't think Anakin's miraculous machine skills are overdone in this book, it's emphasized in many other books the great command he has over machines and karen miller just puts his skills to use in the book.

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.

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.

Good book for Obi and Ani fans

This is a fun listen for anyone who wants to see more of Obi-wan and Anakin's relationship. It gives you real good insight of their toughts and emotions, which are not always those you'd expect.

This book is a two-parter so it ends abruptly and leaves you wandering just what happened next tough...

good story. but really bad dialogue choices.

this was a decent story. lots of intriguing and action.
but this book suffers from something not relating to the basic story. but to the dialogue between characters.

let me explain. this is a Star wars book.
not a modern character study.
this is supposed to take place in a galaxy far far away.

so why are Anakin and Obi-wan using common phrases that would fit perfectly into any over coffee conversation?

it takes you out of the story when Anakin says. "ok I'll bite. is it a rock plant or vegetable?"
when Obi-wan is asking about a planet.

and these turn of phrases are littered throughout the novel. they are both unwelcome amd unwanted.
i dont need a Hipster Obi-Wan. or a punk rock Anakin.

it comes off as if the author doesn't actually know anything about Star Wars.
this book is filled with sloppy writing and coincidental story cliches.

the performance is amazing. and the only reason to actually purchase this audio book.

but i would recommend you skip it.
it's just not worth the annoyance you will experience throughout its entirety.

save your money, save your credits, save your brain cells and skip this one.

good story

I liked it. Decent story, not extraordinary. Liked the recurring characters showing up. Wish to see Ahsoka in more novels.
