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 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 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.

Horrible Book

There’s was almost zero action. There were two brief action sequences. One in the beginning and one in the VERY end. The rest of the book was all boring conversations and arguments between Obi-Wan and Anakin. I couldn’t believe it. Be warned.

Some merit but lacks panache

So I'm a certifiable Star Wars junkie. Not the worlds biggest fan but I've probably read about 40 or expanded SW novels over the years. Some are great, many are ok, some are downright atrocious. This is in the ok category.

What I liked:
- Really liked the dynamic between Obi Wan and Anakin. Miller actually does the best job I've read of the many authors who've tried to tackle this tandem. She gives the relationship depth that most other books lack.
- I really like how she portrayed the emotional disaster that is Anakin. This is a big criticism of the Clone Wars. While the TV show provides glimpses of Skywalker's psychology that leads him to the Dark Side, Miller does an excellent job of portraying this character's many emotional foibles that eventually lead to his fall. I see some people writing this is over done but I appreciated the opportunity of exploring his instability.
- This is one of the more gritty SW novels I've read. Kinda reflects the SW universe where Han shot first (if you're a fan you'll know what I mean)

What I didn't like:
- While the advantages of writing a story about Obi Wan and Anakin are obvious, it's also really tricky because there are so many other stories and SW cannon around these characters. Yoda and Bail Organa too. The author takes liberties and this results in much gnashing of teeth. You could have wrote this story with a couple of secondary characters and still had a fine story but not creating inconsistencies with the ample material that covers these two main characters.
- The overall story plodded along and was predicable. It definitely didn't hook me in.
- Why are all bad guys so stupid in SW (Thrawn excepted). Despite having an ultra secure facility, the Jedi basically have full run of the place. They crawl through several hundred meters of air vents - really! Air vents is gotta be the oldest trick in the book! But I guess if you think about it, this is exactly what Han and Luke did in the first movie on the Death Star, but I digress. Sigh... SW isn't perfect.
- The author relies way too much upon Anakin's technical skills; we know that he's handy with fixing things, but some of the situations he resolves with this skill verge on silly.

So in a nutshell, it was ok read. Certainly not the greatest SW novel I've read, but an better than average attempt that gets the Obi Wan-Anakin relationship done right.

BTW: the narrator was great. I think it's the gentleman from the Clone Wars. A nice touch!

Narrator is terrible, I couldn’t listen for even five minutes

I couldn’t listen to this. The narrator is terrible.
I’ll check to make sure he isn’t on others before buying.

Good story but the annoying sound effects in the background grow extremely tiresome and become distracting

Entertaining

If you are a fan of The Clone Wars this book does not really fit in The Clone Wars. It does not have the full excitement of The Clone Wars.

wow

a real shame this is no longer canon. Jeff Gurner was amazing with all the different characters, particularly Obi one. it was like being in another film. can't recommend it enough. a must read for clone wars fans, and fans of obi one and anakin as they are the primary characters.

Love it

Finally a book that had me glued to my phone. Listening all day long. Only thing that disappoints, is the fact you have to buy two books, it ends with to be continued...

Great narrator, good story

If you're wanting something good to listen to and you're a fan of Star Wars (especially the Clone Wars) then you're in luck. The narrator acts out the likes of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin especially well, and he's no slouch when it comes to the other characters either. Will definitely be getting Clone Wars Gambit: Siege once the month clocks over.

Another great story made by Karen Miller, theses books really expand the story of the clone wars and gives you a lot more insight on what our protagonists are feeling!

Not as good as the other Star Wars books

Struggled to finish both books.
A little weak in story and characters not epic enough.
