Summary

The Clone Wars have exploded across the galaxy as Republic forces and Separatists struggle to gain the upper hand. But while the Jedi generals work tirelessly to defeat Count Dooku and his rebels, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine is hatching his own dark plans.  

The Separatists have launched a sneak attack on Coruscant. Obi-Wan Kenobi, wounded in battle, insists that Anakin Skywalker and his rookie Padawan, Ahsoka, leave on a risky mission against General Grievous. But when Senator Bail Organa reveals explosive intelligence that could turn the tide of war in the Republic's favor, the Jedi Master agrees to accompany him to an obscure planet on the Outer Rim to verify the facts. 

What Obi-Wan and Bail don't realize is that they're walking into a deadly trap concocted by Palpatine...and that excape may not be an option.

Inspired by the full-length animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the brand-new TV series, this thrilling adventure is filled with provocative, never-before-revealed insights into the characters of Obi-Wan, Anakin, Padme, Yoda, Count Dooku, and many other Star Wars favorites.

Interesting story

This book tells a very interesting and very 'out there' story. You get to see a whole different side of Obi-wan Kenobi, one that you never thought you'd see before. It deviates from the war and focuses on a mystical world in wild space.

The issue I have with this book is that I'm not sure Bail Organa was the right companion for Kenobi. This was a chance to introduce and develop a new character, but Bail doesn't get that many stories, so I suppose he needed some development.

Also, I'm not sure why Rex and the clones are the focal point of the cover, since they literally only say a couple of lines in the whole book.
Other than that, it's an interesting story, especially after the first third. Surprisingly, Jeff Gurner does a pretty good impression of Yoda and Kenobi (that, or I just got used to it) so it's a nice listen!

Hmmmmm

not keen on this story.
maybe because Yoda's voice seemed to be wrong I don't know. but either way it wasn't as good as the first.

Overly Long

I love Jeff Gutners voice, but the story is too long. It’s just 4 hours of Obi Wan having mental breakdowns. Personally, only get this if you enjoy Jeff Gurner

lingering

An interesting book but the storyline was a bit bland. It felt as if there was no plot and the story line just lingered on.

Great story!

I am a big Star Wars fan and I loved this book. I would really recommend it to all Star Wars fans. It has a lot of description and detail and tells a great story. Hope you enjoy it like I did.

The Perfect Sequel To AOTC And The Clone Wars Film

Where do I begin? The first three chapters caught me off guard, for they immediately follow the events at the end of Attack Of The Clones. Many Jedi are dead, Obi-wan is heavily wounded, and his Padawan Anakin has lost an arm. Tensions are high, and we finally see the aftermath of the movie. In the fourth chapter it goes to what you were expecting from the summary.

Post-Christophsis and Teth, Obi-wan Kenobi must go on a mission to a planet in wild space to assess a threat that looms from the machinations of the Sith. He reluctantly works with Bail Organa in this matter, despite his distaste for politicians. Us as readers get to see how this friendship came to be, further clarifying the events of Revenge of the Sith years later. It is a perfect follow-up to both AOTC and the Clone Wars movie/novel. Karen Miller amazed me with this one.

Jeff Gurner astounds me yet again with his amazing performance. Given his great Obi-wan voice, this was a perfect book for his talents. I say this a lot as I get through more Star Wars books, but this is one of the best ones yet.

Might not be what you expect but still a good book

Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars to be better than the print version?

I never read the print version but listening to audiobooks let me get through more titles than reading the print editions because I can listen while doing other things like driving, working, etc.

What other book might you compare Star Wars to and why?

Star Wars The Clone Wars because it is the next book in the series, at least I believe it is.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes the narration was pretty good, not the best I've heard but not the worst either. Some of the characters sounded close to their counterparts on the animated series.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Cloud of the Sith

Any additional comments?

I read a lot of comments about this book saying it was dull and it talked too much about feelings and I think the reason a lot of people say this is they might have expected this book to be about Anakin and Snips. It is not, they make cameo appearances (and if you watch the TV series there is something that Anakin and Snips are off doing that was an episode while the main story is going on) but the story is mainly about Obi Wan.

The pacing is a bit off as it is a bit slow to start, an abridged version of this book might be better for some people, but I loved listening to the backstory and character developments. We learn how a lot of these characters end up personality wise, it's interesting to see how they get there.

There is a lot about feelings in this book and it is interesting to see how the Jedi struggle with attachment and how the teachings of the Jedi to not keep attachments IMO is not right (while at the same time not being completely wrong if that makes any sense).

If you liked The Clone Wars I believe you will like this one. There may not be as much action but as far as I'm concerned definitely not boring, I breezed through this book rather quickly!

Kenobi vs Organa

An excellent book if you would like to listen to Obi-Wan and Bail argue for 12 hours

Zero Clones, Zero Wars, Borderline Sadistic

This is my 10th Star Wars audiobook and the first I've not enjoyed. Others may get something out of this but it was pretty rough to get though for me.

The story itself was not very entertaining and the repetitiveness of conversations and events after Coruscant is mind-numbing (maybe something that was intended - you'll see what I mean if you give it a listen). The amount of description given for the psychological attacks and suffering the characters feel is borderline sadistic, so much so I couldn't listen for more than a few minutes at a time. While I understand this is key to this story, it detracts from the overall story and made me really not want to continue listening. I'll definitely give credit to the author for being able to come up with so many ways to describe the torture Obi-Wan goes through, and the physical pain they endure.

The Bail/Obi-Wan dynamic was just as tortuous for me as well. I wanted to yell a few times at my computer. I'd also agree that the author took many questionable liberties with the characters that seemed to portray them differently than we've come to know them.

The narrator did a good job, and as always the production values for the Star Wars stories on here are excellent.

Although I plan on listening to all the Star Wars content on here, this series is going to the back of the line. Others may enjoy this, but this was not quite what I was expecting from this book and I'm fairly disappointed in it.

Ridiculously Repetitive

I never write reviews but this was so bad I had to. The book repeats it self over and over again(Bail Organa and Obi-Wan have the exact same conversation 10-20 times). Also almost nothing happens, most of the book is taken up by pointless conversation or very long descriptions of character's feelings. The voice acting is OK but the voice actor is not that great at doing characters and they all start to sound the same. I have read or listened to 20-30 Star Wars books in my life and this is by far the worst.

Not an action book but something else/more

Okay - this isn't an action packed book. There are some great sequences at the start but this book is really something else/more. It fills in the gaps of the relationship between Bail Organa and Obi Wan - we knew there had to be a link from Episode IV but it has never really been explained. The author does have her own perculiar style of writing and is long winded in a couple of areas but the story is building the relationship and backstory to episode III and beyond and so needs the indepth discussions that happen between characters.
Again I really applaud the publisher for releasing this book unabridged - keep them coming unabridged!
