Publisher's 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.

Don't waste your time

To be perfectly honest, this is the worst book or audiobook I've read or listened to since Alan Dean Foster's THE APPROACHING STORM.The Author , Karen Miller takes many liberties with the characters , including Obi-wan, Bail Organa, And Padme. For example, Everyone knows that in Episode 2, Attack of the Clones, Obi-wan goes into the nightclub, and Has a drink, But in this story, Obi-wan refuses to drink, because, "Jedi do not drink". Also, Bail Organa and Obi-wan Kenobi's constant bickering is so out of character for both that I just could not listen to the book for more then 15 minuted at a time. The implied love affair between Padme and Organa was just too much for me. There are many other examples that make this story not fit into in Universe and Expanded Universe storylines. I enjoy Karen Travis's handling of the Clone Wars Series, But I am concerned that with Mrs. Miller Storytelling, The series will be a flop. I sure hope she is not writing for the cartoon series. If' I were you, I wouldn't waste my time listening to this book.

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!

Unforgiveably dull

First, the good: there are one or two good moments in the beginning of this book. The bad: after those good moments, the story plummets and is just mind-numbingly dull for the next 10 hours. Characterizations of Obi-wan and Organa are awful, the story creeps along and the only things that kept me listening to the entire book were (1) I was at work anyway, (2) it's still Star Wars, and (3) I hoped it would get better. Unfortunately, it's just no good at all.

Out of Character!

I didn't like how the author interprets the Jedi's in particular! Jedi's, in the clone wars era, were considered "old-school" and in this book they're VERY emotional, uncontrolled and thinking non-Jedi like! The Jedi's were completely out of character!
Dojo??? Who uses dojo in Star Wars universe to describe a training ground??! There are so many Star Wars wording options to describe a training school other than dojo! I know George Lucas is fond of Japanese Samurai movies and all... but DOJO's??? Come On!!
Although slow paced, the author did create some interesting thinking processes on the characters and some dialogs...
Sorry, two stars for you at the best!

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!

Good story but she repeats everything...

The overall storyline is well thought out. The only problem is that Karen Miller repeats every detail and idea that the characters think, it tiresome. The book could have been 6 hours shorter.

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.

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.

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.

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.
The whole part on the Sith planet is too much and the constant die jedi die is annoying to say the least.

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.

Good insight into Kenobi

Characterizaton of Kenobi, Bail Organa, and the Jedi were very well done, but quite a few parts were draggy.
