on yet another unmemorable clone wars episode I sense the Dark SideDooku Jedi Lost is unlike anything else that has been eleased with egards to Star Wars Among the slew of new canon books comics art books Del Rey and Penguin Random House Audio created this audio only Mr. Majeika and the Dinner Lady and Mr. Majeika and the Music Teacher release written by Cavan Scott It s a combination of an audiobook and an audio dramatization that features a full cast As Scott has said on Twitter it s like a movie for your earsAdmittedly I am not the biggest fan of audiobooks I find it difficult to concentrate when there is just one narrative voice plus I struggle to focus without the words in front of me This year in an effort to incorporateeading HELLO INSANE TBR I ve been attempting audiobooks again I ve actually gotten through a few GO ME Now the Twilight of the Idols reason that I ve been evenemotely successful in completing three audiobooks is because they have all been audio dr A great book I was a little worried as it is Ninth City Burning (War of the Realms, re screenplay version of an audio book However with all the narration scenes It gave just as much insight into what the characters were thinking This is the preuel to the Master Apprentice some of the passages on this book fit in perfectly with the ui Gon and Dooku or the parts with RealI am not a fan of the watered down politically motivated Jedi of the Disney era of Star Wars So this made me empathise with Dooku s disillusionment with the Jedi of around him They say theoad to hell is paved with good intentions this is definitely true in this book We see Dooku with the best of intentions stepping closer and closer to the dark sideI am a Der Ritter und die Bastardtochter reminded a bit of the Smallville series As much I as never liked that series I did like Lex and even though I knew he was going to turn evil I kept hoping it would not happen This is similar here I knew Dooku s destiny but I like the character I did hope it would not happenIf I had one complaint about this book it is I did not see the exact moment that Dooku fully turned We see the meeting with Palpetine but not the final corruption In fact the penultimate chapter was Dooku s most heroic momentThis is a great book and history of a great character I was not even a huge Dooku fan at the start of this book but the story is awsome andeally does the character justice First of all this is not a book so let s get that out of the way immediatelyThis is an audio drama six hours long performed by a full cast I have to state upfront that I loathe this medium and so you should take my Chinaberries and Crows review andating with a HUGE grain of salt if you e someone who likes audiobooks or audio shows I am no judge of voice acting so I will say only one single thing on that score the Ventress voice was nearly perfectAside from the inherent grating campy weirdness of listening to an audio drama at all the biggest downside of Well this was certainly interesting a script for an audio drama that details the ise and ultimate fall of one Count Dooku Conceptually alone I couldn t Blessed Are the Wicked resist giving this one at least a peek and I m so glad I did Dooku Jedi LostocksThere s two things that writer Cavan Scott does that makes Dooku Jedi Lost work as well as it does The first might seem obvious but it s crucial he tells a eally eally good story Jumping across all periods of time and interlinking various characters some familiar some new Scott crafts a web that s surprisingly ambitious while also being sure to include plentiful nuggets of lore for the diehard fans there s one particular interaction at about the point that I can pretty much guarantee will have Star Wars nerds completely spazzing The second much guarantee will have Star Wars nerds completely spazzing The second he nails is the character of Dooku himself Having gotten to know Dooku from Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith as well as his egular ole on The Clone Wars television series we as Star Wars fans have built up a pretty specific idea of who the Count is by this point smug entitled ambitious Not only does Scott s characterization FEEL like the Dooku we ve become so familiar with over the last 20 some years but in looking at Dooku s early pre Attack of the Clones life he also manages to provide eaderslisteners a *With A Clearer Sense Of *a clearer sense of exactly Dooku fell to the Dark Side and became the onscreen baddie we ve loved to hate for nearly 20 years now can you believe that Attack of the Clones is almost that old already It s character development that feels both earned and obvious in the absolute best way making a character that was already pretty complex all the fascinating Actual ating is 25 starsThis is an audiobook set in a galaxy far far away In this one we explore Dooku as a member of the Jedi Academy This book covers his whole time being a padawan to Jedi Knight and on this journey we see how Dooku loses his faith in the Jedi wayThere were aspects I absolutely loved about this book and some I did not First off the production is excellent as we get different actors for each ole We also get sound affects and throughout the production snippets of John Williams iconic musical score The actress who voiced Ventress was perfect I wasn t crazy about how the story unfolds in this one Dooku sends Ventress on a mission and Ventress believes to succeed on this mission she needs to learn about her master We get this information thru flashbacks and I believe this story would have worked better if it was told in a linear fashion I did enjoy the background information we get about Dooku especially how he earns his title of CountI believe
this story is geared to those who would like the background information to characters This story isn t the moststory is geared to those who would like the background information to characters This story isn t the most but it does have some nice points and appearances We do get appearances from some important characters like Yoda and ui Gon and the interactions between Dooku and these characters did bring me satisfaction There wasn t just enough oomph in the story The production value does make it worth a listen thoug. Nds himself drawn by a strange fascination with the Jedi Master Lene Kostana and the mission she undertakes for the Order finding and studying ancient elics of the Sith in preparation for the eventual Grauwacht return of the deadliest enemies the Jedi have ever facedCaught between the world of the Jedi the ancientesponsibilities of his lost home and the alluring power of the elics Dooku struggles to stay in the light even as the darkness begins to fall. Very big names including Christopher Lee and Corey Burton who voiced the character in The Clone Wars and various other Star Wars projects But standouts in this audio drama include Orlagh Cassidy as Asajj Ventress Sean Kenin as Sifo Dyas Carol Monda as Lene Kostana Saskia Maarleveld as Jenza Jonathan Davis as ui Gon Jinn and Marc Thompson as Yoda Dooku Jedi Lost is an audio drama script by Scott Cavan that follows Count Dooku from childhood through his leaving the Jedi Order and taking up the mantle or cape of leadership on his home world of Serenno My preference would have been to listen to the audio version as it was intended to be experienced but I m at the mercy of the public library and what they added to the collection is the hardcover script not the audioHaving ead the book however I think it might be the clearer option anyway Cavan tells the story through narration and flashback and sometimes these go three layers deep someone narrating about a flashback in which someone else narrates another flashback I can imagine this could get confusing especially since so few of the characters are Lies, Damned Lies, and History recognizable voices from the movies and TV seriesI found the book surprisingly engaging and intriguing The pre preuel era is shaping up well so far with this story and Claudia Gray s Master and Apprentice It feels exhilarating to get a glimpse into a past era that hasn t yet been explored in movie or TV form Cavan writes with a natural flow giving theight spaces to each character He doesn t labor over lengthy descriptions of battle scenes but gives just enough detail to picture what we need to know even The New World reading it off the page without the benefit of sound effectsWhat I like about the pre preuel era so far is the space that s left for stories that take place during the same years Rael Averros is an interesting character who was introduced fully in Master and Apprentice I d like to see stories featuring him I also liked Lene Kostana a Jedi Master and sort of mentor to Dooku who investigates Sithelics and history and seems to walk a fine line between the light side and the dark side It s an interesting idea to bring into Star Wars that a Jedi could be a traditionalist seeking wisdom and disciplines from ancient times There s a lot of space to write about Lene and I hope a good author does soThe book has some awkward aspects but they are at this point You Wouldn't Want to Be an Inca Mummy!: A One-way Journey You'd Rather Not Make relatively minor criticisms The main one is that SW writers are going to have to be careful that writing about youngling life in the Jedi Temple doesn t turn into Hogwarts The childhood scenes in this book were very Hogwarts and that feels not uiteight for SW in part because it makes me wonder about the point of bringing people to the temple when they e infants If this doesn t make them somehow different from ordinary kids growing up then what s the point Might as well bring them to the temple when they e 5 or 10 or even older when they and their families can make informed choicesThe other awkwardness is Dooku s personal development Because this story has to cover most of his life his changing perspective toward the Jedi Order has to take much longer than seems The Fashion Industry and Its Careers: An Introduction reasonable He saw enough of the duplicity and dishonesty among the Jedi early in his life to push him away in aadical way much sooner Here it seems a little odd that he should be skeptical of the Jedi at the time that he s also a evered teacher mentor to two padawans and a member of the council I was also disappointed that he leaves the Jedi without explaining anything to ui GonThis book introduces Sifo Dyas the character
Previously Only Mentioned As The Jedi Who Ordered The Clonesonly mentioned as the Jedi who ordered the clones Kamino It s interesting to get to know him a mystic who is mentally tormented by prophetic visions but we don t see when how or why he orders the clone army In fact it seems that at the point when he should be doing so he is nearly incapacitated by his mental anguish I hope this gets explained further in another bookSo lots stories to write about these years But this was a fun start and makes me look forward to The Dark Side of the Force is strong in this book THE COUNT OF SERENNO This book is the written script for this story that it was initially presented as audiobook I am uite glad that they decided to print a eadable version of itCount Dooku is one of the most complex characters made but sometimes people don t appreciate or understand his Auschwitz: True Tales from a Grotesque Land relevance in the Star Wars universe since his time on screen on the movie episodes was limited but if you have watched the animated Clone Wars series you canealize how powerful character is since he didn t turn evil just for the sake of it but his easons to turn to the Dark Side of the Force were well based from his point of view and due the situations that he needed to dealt withHeir of the House of Serenno Padawan of Master Yoda Close friend of the infamous Syfo Dias Attracted in than a way to Jedi Master Lene Kostana Jedi Knight Jedi Master Member of the Jedi Council Teacher of ui Gon Jinn Student of Darth Sidious Dark Lord of the Sith Teacher of Assajj Ventress Teacher of General Grievous Teacher of Savage Opress Leader of the Separatist Forces
