Any Star Wars fan will know, the title of this review is a quote from 'The Empire Strikes Back', spoken by Darth Vader during his first battle with Luke Skywalker. \"Impressive\" just doesn't do this book justice though, it is utterly superb.
The Jedi battle with Dooku on the separatist flagship, the deepening darkness on Coruscant and in The Republic, the rising fear within Anakin Skywalker, the twisted inner-workings of the minds of Count Dooku, Darth Sidious, and General Grievous....All these things (and more) feed your imagination, and open-up the Star Wars Universe, like never before.
On top of this, the narration is masterful, almost an art, which brings the story to life in such a way, you could almost be there.
Amazing book, and well worth buying. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and wil do so again, I have no doubt of that :-)
In a word, AMAZING!! Thoroughly enjoyable, from start to finish. You're listening for an hour, before you even get to where the movie begins, this should give you some idea of the depth of the storyline.
The writing is excellent, and the narration adds to it immeasurably. Drama, excitement, and edge-of-your-seat action, right from the outset........superb stuff!
I'm eagerly anticipating 'Episode III' now, if it's anywhere near as good as this, I'm in for a treat :-D
A great book, and a definite 'must' for your collection.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, well worth buying. As with most books, this expands the storyline from the movie, and delves deeper into the thoughts of the characters, which definitely adds to the story.
There was something that I found a little disappointing though. The Narrator pronounced Palpatine incorrectly, a minor point I know, but you'd think he may have checked the pronunciation of characters names, before he started reading ;-)
It ranks quite high up against some of the other audiobooks I've listened to.
The ending has a fantastic and unlikely twist which makes you smile.
This compares very well with his other work, good characterisation although with so many it can get confusing, especially if you take an extended break from the book.
Han Solo puts Danny Ocean to shame in this crime caper with a twist......
Very good and suprising book where the plot constantly changes and evolves with a great if suprising ending.
