    A great book I was a little worried as it is 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 the road 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 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 and really does the character justice

    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 readable version of itCount Dooku is one of the most complex characters made but sometimes people don't appreciate or understand his 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 can realize how powerful character is since he didn't turn evil just for the sake of it but his reasons 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 Just naming his endless roles and titles in life you can realize how complex and diverse character he was and therefore how insteresting life he had and how crutial impact his existence was not only by himself but to others also key in the political ambiance of the GalaxyAssajj Ventress has her own convulted history with Dooku and in a moment where both are in fair terms Dooku opened himself and told her about his roller coaster pastThe story of Count Dooku is finally told and it's here

    Dooku Jedi Lost is a phenomenal listening experience for anyone who considers themselves a Star Wars fanCurrently though not for long the first piece of the Disney Canon timeline this uick audiobook essentially tells the origin story for Count DookuMany of us only think of Dooku as the Dark Lord of the Sith but he was once a powerful Jedi who eventually succumbed to the pull of the dark sideThe narrative is actually set up as following his Sith Apprentice Asajj Ventress who yearning to learn about her mysterious master delves into his past to discover what turned him into the man he has becomeAsajj's investigation follows a timeline through many formative moments in Dooku's life Most importantly the reader learns of the reasons he became disillusioned with the JediI loved getting a glimpse into Dooku's past from being abandoned by his father prior to acceptance to the Jedi Temple to his relationships with his sister and Jedi contemporary Sifo Dyas to his selection and training by Master YodaThere's no denying Dooku was an extremely motivated highly intelligent and strong willed young man The force was very strong with him but I could definitely understand his perspective as to his disillusionment with the Jedi CouncilThis production is absolutely incredible The full cast the sound effects and musical score all contribute to bringing this story to lifeAbsolutely recommend

    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 review and rating with a HUGE grain of salt if you're 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 this story is the narrative structure It is a dual storyline one following Ventress in the present day and one exploring Dooku's backstory through flashbacks to various points in his life Ventress's storyline is by far the smaller one; her mission is simple and straightforward and I would say probably a solid 78% of our air time is spent on Dooku's flashbacksThe flashbacks themselves are fine I don't enjoy them as much as I liked being with Ventress but they do provide the important canon details I was after and lay a lot of good groundwork for Dooku as a character The problem is that the story uses the gimmick of Dooku's daily holo messages to his sister as a vehicle to propel us into his past And then a journal that Ventress somehow finds in a desk drawer which conveniently picks up where the holo messages left off and then the end of the story is supplied by his sister herselfThis just came off to me as incredibly weird and absurd The story tries to excuse the ridiculousness of Dooku having a JOURNAL by having him claim to have purposefully left all these things for Ventress to find But why? He gives Ventress the holo messages in the first place ostensibly so that it will help her on her mission but it ends up playing no role in that And why should he want Ventress to understand HIM or see his backstory? It's never explained and Dooku's nature as a prideful and private person makes it seem completely out of character I know the story needed to create some reason to tell Dooku's life story but I can't help feeling there had to be a better possible reason than this The journal and holocomm just seemed completely artificial something you have to handwave because the author needed it to be that way not because it actually makes any sense in universe Having to hear so many characters doing silly first person narration of lines that in a book would be part of the scene setting prose I stepped out onto the plain the wind caressing my face didn't help eitherThis was the biggest stumbling block I ran into trying to enjoy this story I am vitally interested in gathering up whatever new Star Wars knowledge Lucasfilms sees fit to disseminate and I did learn UITE a bit from this book about Dooku and the time before the preuel trilogy This is probably as far back in the history of the post Ruusan Jedi Order that I personally have ever ventured and it was a very interesting journey The few shoutouts and tie ins with Master and Apprentice were certainly noticed and appreciatedOverall the experience of hacking my way through this six hour long ordeal was a test of my commitment I don't know that it was worth it necessarily but I'm at least glad it's overSome notable things• Weird how Dooku spent so many years being Yoda's padawan and yet Yoda shows up in this book like seven times and it's almost always in brief scenes where he's on the Council You don't get the sense that Dooku and Yoda really cared about each other at all and the story certainly doesn't invest in their relationship• Rael Averross I was glad to see him show up because I love him and he and Dooku's relationship is definitely a high point His extremely deep cowboy voice is a little weird especially when Dooku's voice is about half as deep as it should be but still Rael• The Bogan Collection First of all what the HECK is this?• Dooku's childhood in the Temple gives off MAJOR Harry Potter vibes Weird classes with eccentric teachers? Sneaking into the restricted section of the Archives? Grudge matches with fellow students? Leaping to immediate and poorly founded conclusions about people being evil? Sith bestiary? Check check and check• KY NAREC There were far fewer Ventress backstory details than I was hoping to get in this story but I love the ones we were given And I love Ky Narec even though he wasn't real I hope to see him again• Dooku and Sifo Dyas's friendship is one of the best parts of this story and it makes the fact that Dooku would eventually murder him twice as sad• This Dooku and ui Gon were extremely close thing that new canon has created continues to be extremely intriguing It almost gives me a completely different perspective on ui Gon and I'm still not totally sure how I feel about it• The entire Jedi Order is a freaking mess It's just an absolute disaster There's so much chicanery and drama going on it's almost hard to keep track of• Lene Kostana It's a little bit odd because when she first showed up I was like oh she's cool She's a maverick and a dissenter with good ideas But then she kept showing up almost taking the emotional place of Yoda as Dooku's mentor and everything she did just seemed to get and shady Now that I've finished the story I look back and see her being selfish and unstable and obsessive and possibly dangerous but the narrative never actually seems to sour on her? Very conflicted Is she meant to be sympathetic? Is she meant to be seen as contributing to Dooku's eventual Fall? You know it was really unclear• Jenza was great It was obvious what her eventual fate would be but I liked her a lot as a character I don't understand why Dooku would become the heir of Serenno with his brother dead when Jenza was right there? • Dooku almost comes off as the most reasonable person in the Jedi Order which is interesting for a story chronicling his Fall to the Dark Side Although I suppose it makes sense given that most of it is told through his own eyes and he is almost certainly an unreliable narrator

    The dialog is empty the plot consists of an unfocused collection of minor unremarkable events that involve Dooku without explaining his transformation; the book’s basic promise and goal delivers abject failure provided the fact that the author gives you no window into dooku’s thoughts emotions motives and argued reasons for abandoning the order and becoming a dark lord of the sith Further the story omits any interaction with sithdark side philosophy artifacts or figures; delving into none of his training with Darth Sidious The high uality cast and vocal performance is suandered on yet another unmemorable clone wars episode

    45 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Wars audiobooks are always a treat to listen to but audio dramas are on a whole other level Performed by a full cast and available only as an audiobook Star Wars Dooku Jedi Lost is an immersive experience that puts your right in the middle of the action and makes you feel like you are in a Star Wars movie watching all the events and action play out around youSince the release of the preuels and the character’s first appearance in Attack of the Clones the origins of Count Dooku AKA Darth Tyranus has been shrouded in mystery and plagued with uestions We know that he was a former Jedi and a Padawan of Yoda’s before he became the Count of Serenno and the Leader of the Separatists But what happened in between? What was his childhood like and how did he fall out with the Jedi leading him down the path to the dark side?Dooku Jedi Lost seeks to address all of that by taking listeners all the way to the beginning when our main character was just a boy at the Jedi Temple where he is just one of many younglings brought to Coruscant by seekers scouring the galaxy for force sensitives He hasn’t even been chosen as an apprentice by Yoda this point but while on an excursion with his fellow students to the planet of Serenno as part of a cultural exchange presentation Dooku discovers something about his personal history that will forever change the way he views the Jedi and himselfI should also mention that all of these past events are told in flashback because Dooku Jedi Lost is a frame story which places us some time during the Clone Wars when Dathomir Nightsister and dark Jedi Asajj Ventress was still an acolyte to Count Dooku working as his assassin Chafing under the Sith lord and tortured with visions and voices in her head Ventress is given a new assignment to track down a new target—someone close to the Count’s own heart As she makes her way to Serenno to fulfill her task Ventress learns about Dooku and catches glimpses of the most defining moments of his life with the JediAlong with the recently released Star Wars Master Apprentice by Claudia Gray new canon offerings like this one are proving to be a blessing for fans who want to know about preuel era Clocking in at a mere six hours and twenty one minutes this audio drama is nowhere near as long as the series’ typical novels but it still packs a lot of content Besides the emotional decisions and the political ramifications that led Dooku to turn his back on the Jedi and take up the mantle of his forebears this audio drama also delves deeper into his personal relationships including that of his close friendship with Sifo Dyas as well as his apprenticeship with the famed Yoda Eventually of course Dooku also reaches the rank of Master Jedi and becomes master himself to a hot headed young Padawan ui Gon JinnWritten by Cavan Scott the story is well plotted and developed However as entertaining was it was I can’t really see the history of Count Dooku being all that exciting to anyone but the most hardcore of fans Luckily though the story isn’t the only reason why people pick up audio dramas After all the best and most notable aspects of this format are the audiobook production values and technical ualities as well as the incredible performances And I’m pleased to say that in this area the creators of Dooku Jedi Lost went all out Sounds are used to great effect and musical snippets from John Williams’ brilliant score inject another emotional layer to the experience Then there’s the incredible talent of all the voice actors and actresses Compared to regular audiobooks audio dramas typically demand a lot acting from their narrators because there is less descriptive text and so every spoken line has to contain a lot information in the way it is delivered For the most part I feel the cast gave a spectacular performanceAll I can say is yes please to Star Wars audio dramas I can see so much potential for future tales that will work great for this format Dooku Jedi Lost is worth checking out for the exuisite audio experience alone and fans also get a surprisingly in depth study into one of enigmatic characters of the Star Wars universeAudiobook Comments If you’re not familiar with audio dramas some time may be needed to ease into the format Narrated by a cast of twelve there are a lot of characters to keep track of but each voice is distinct enough thanks to the talented readers Although everyone gave a strong performance some were better than others Ironically Euan Morton’s performance as Dooku was pretty average though to be fair he’s portraying a younger version of the character in addition to trying to fill the shoes of some 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

    Well this was certainly interesting a script for an audio drama that details the rise and ultimate fall of one Count Dooku Conceptually alone I couldn’t resist giving this one at least a peek and I’m so glad I did “Dooku Jedi Lost” rocksThere’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 really really 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 ¾ point that I can pretty much guarantee will have “Star Wars” nerds completely spazzing The second thing 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 regular role 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 readerslisteners a with a clearer sense of how 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

    I sense the Dark SideDooku Jedi Lost is unlike anything else that has been released with regards to Star Wars Among the slew of new canon books comics art books Del Rey and Penguin Random House Audio created this audio only 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 incorporate reading HELLO INSANE TBR I've been attempting audiobooks again I've actually gotten through a few GO ME Now the reason that I've been even remotely successful in completing three audiobooks is because they have all been audio dramatizations with full casts and each contained a cinematic uality to them It helps that the scripts in uestion are X Files and Star Wars two of my favorite things OF LIFE I wasn't about to miss out on a new Star Wars story just because it is audio only I'm glad to have stepped outside of my comfort zone a bit Especially because I was able to enjoy this story that features one of my all time top Star Wars characters ASAJJ VENTRESSDooku Jedi Lost follows Asajj as she trains under Dooku and uncovers why he left the Jedi Order It jumps throughout different time periods in Dooku's life as a little boy a teenager a young man and then onto his role as Jedi Master This is the mysterious Count Dooku's origin story FinallyTo see ahh read erm HEAR Dooku's progression into the dark Sith was uite something It's incredibly insightful to see just what went on with Dooku and how he went from being one of the best Jedi's the Order had seen to what lead to the events that unfolded in The Phantom MenaceThis helps to fill in some of the prior gaps and gives us a deeper understanding of Dooku Through his personal relationships with Sifo Dyas ui Gon Jinn Yoda Ventress and his familyTears pricking my eyesAlthough some of the voice actors felt a little off within their respective roles I thought Marc Thompson did a wonderful job with Yoda and that Orlagh Cassidy absolutely nailed the Asajj portrayalI appreciate all of the attention that is being paid to the preuel era as of late It's about time that we explore these stories there is still so much to discover in this timeline

    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 read 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 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 the right 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 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 Sith relics 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 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 uite right for SW—in part because it makes me wonder about the point of bringing people to the temple when they’re 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’re 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 reasonable He saw enough of the duplicity and dishonesty among the Jedi early in his life to push him away in a radical 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 revered 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 clones from 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

    Actual rating 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 role 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 most important 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 though
