Description

Delve into the history of the sinister Count Dooku in this audio original set in a galaxy far, far away....

Darth Tyranus. Count of Serenno. Leader of the Separatists. A red saber, unsheathed in the dark. But who was he before he became the right hand of the Sith? As Dooku courts a new apprentice, the hidden truth of the Sith Lord’s past begins to come to light. 

Dooku’s life began as one of privilege - born within the stony walls of his family’s estate, orbited by the Funeral Moon where the bones of his ancestors lie interred. But soon, his Jedi abilities are recognized, and he is taken from his home to be trained in the ways of the Force by the legendary Master Yoda.

As he hones his power, Dooku rises through the ranks, befriending fellow Jedi Sifo-Dyas and taking a Padawan of his own, the promising Qui-Gon Jinn - and tries to forget the life that he once led. But he finds himself drawn by a strange fascination with the Jedi Master Lene Kostana, and the mission she undertakes for the Order: finding and studying ancient relics of the Sith, in preparation for the eventual return of the deadliest enemies the Jedi have ever faced.

Caught between the world of the Jedi, the ancient responsibilities of his lost home, and the alluring power of the relics, Dooku struggles to stay in the light - even as the darkness begins to fall.

Prety darn good

Well worth the wait, in fact while I have no real complaints I was sorry that it was only 6hrs... wish the story had kept going up to the behind the scene events when we were introduced to Dooku in Episode II.

Still am not sorry I bought this book!

A (Potentially) Fresh New Direction

This movie as a different take on the Star Wars audiobooks than I was used to, and so - even though it was a shorter story than most - I struggled to "get into it", as it seemed to flow a little more 'choppy' than those stories with a narrative voice. I also felt as though the entire cast (with the exception of the voice artists for Yoda, Sifo and Dooku) didn't really have a good handle on the nuance of how many of the Jedi characters would normally interact; It felt as if you put a script to an installment in a franchise in front of a group of people who hadn't been subjected to said franchise, and just told them to read it was they thought they should.

That being said, this new style is something I think should be explored more. I liked the old-timey, radio drama atmosphere that was lent, what with the extra overacting and sound effects (which you wouldn't normally need if you had a narrator explaining what was happening).

Decent, But A Proper Novel Would Have Been Better

I'm a big fan of the clone wars Era and Dooku so I was rather excited when I found out about this. However I was left a tad disappointed. The story itself is very interesting and would love a more in depth version. I also found that the narration was confusing and all over the place....it would jump from Ventress to Dooku's sister to a random voice. without descriptions of some off the lesser know characters it was hard to follow who was who, and who was saying what.

In short; very interesting if you are a dooku fan or want to know more about him. However I feel like I would have enjoyed a propper novelisation.

PS Just finished Master and Apprentice before this one, and not only is the voice work A lot better but because it's an actual book it's very comprehensive and flows better.

Good but missed potential.

First off this book is enjoyable and is an interesting look into the life of Dooku pre Clone Wars Era. But it did feel a little rushed. It’s only a six hour book. So a lot of the scenes lack the depth and detail of most other Star Wars books. Goes from conflict to resolution in a few minutes leaving a lot to be desired. But it’s a small complaint for an otherwise interesting listen.

One important note. There’s a lot of screaming (seriously a lot lol) by the various voice actors in this book. And can be piercing to the ears. Volume is up to hear the dialogue clearly then you get blasted with screams that make you want to rip out your headphones. Just a heads up.

Decent Audio Drama!

Dooku: Jedi Lost was a worthwhile distraction during my daily commute, however being unfamiliar with the various animated Star Wars series put me at a bit of a disadvantage. I was familiar with Dooku from his appearances in the two prequel movies. Knowing beforehand that his personal history was being uncovered by a Sith assassin Asajj Ventress, my first reaction was "who?" I thought this might have been a good jumping-on point, and while it's easy listening, it's also not incredibly newbie-friendly. If you're curious about Dooku's past as a Jedi, this will certainly help fill in the gaps. If, like me, you're only familiar with the live-action Star Wars films and a handful of the new cannon books, you'll probably be lost by all the unfamiliar names and history connecting characters you've never heard of. If you're familiar with the Clone Wars cartoons, though, you'll probably have an easier go of this than I did.

As far as the voice talents go, the performances are all pretty solid across the board. Del Rey always puts together good narrators and immersive audio elements like sound effects and a musical score, and this is no different. My only complaint is, particularly when they were portrayed as young padawans, Dooku and his friend, Sifo-Dyas sounded awfully similar and I often couldn't tell who was speaking.

I did find myself missing the usual narrative elements and exposition from a typical audiobook. There were a number of elements I would have liked to have had explored deeper, but the story was constricted by the choice of format. That said, I certainly wouldn't mind future Star Wars audio dramas.

Disappointing

Overall, a bit weak and disappointing.

When I heard that it was performed by a full cast, I was excited. And the full cast includes the three best Star Wars narrators: Jonathan Davis, Marc Thompson and January Lavoy. Unfortunately, it did not work well. At times the men’s voices were so similar that it was difficult to tell who was speaking. And because it was performed instead of “read”, there was very little narration, so the story seemed a bit thin. I’m not sure whether the book is written like a novel or a script. The audiobook gives the impression of the latter.

The editing and production were not great. In parts, the cuts between characters was a bit abrupt, and the acoustics were different. It lost any illusion and became obvious that they were recording their parts separately in a studio.

Finally, I find some of the backstories a bit weak and unsatisfying, and sadly, this was one. I wasn’t a fan of the way it was written, the way it unfolded or the limited character development.

Ultimately, just thin and disappointing.

Too bad.

So many bad production choices

Why? If you have Jonathan Davis and Mark Thompson on board, do you choose the least Dooku sounding actor. It was very confusing and a struggle to listen to. The shortened story time is also another signal that these audiobooks are past their prime. The lack of music and special fx that really brings these books to life is especially disheartening. I've listened to almost 100 Star Wars Audiobooks over the last 12 years. Maybe it's time for a change. 😔

It was okay...

Performance was good, story was meh. I didn't like when the characters would describe themselves doing something in the first person. That was weird, and made some scene very slow it less enjoyable.

Cannon Sstar Wars at it's best.

Hope more Star Wars cannon is put into this format. Many of the cast are ones I've heard, or heard of before, others, not so, Felt like a movie in my head. Amazing origin story for Dooku, and others.

Mediocre story, forced acting

I wanted to enjoy this story. I got some back story on Dooku and some of his associations from the past that had been referenced in the films, but it felt forced. The acting didn't stand up to other star wars audio books I've experienced. The readers seemed inexpierienced and I was confused as to what was happening for a decent percentage of the story. Cost was minimal, so I guess I got what I paid for.

Poor Dooku

A wasted Star Wars villain. I had hopes his backstory would help, it didn't. He is such an interesting character. the voice acting for dooku was not strong enough certainly no Christopher Lee.

Amazing story and phenomenal voice acting.

absolutely loved the story, and the point of view of each and every character. the voice acting was phenomenal , it was almost like I was watching a TV show. would definitely recommend, especially after reading master and Apprentice. There are a lot of parts that reference that book and it's amazing to see those connections.

Cavan Scott makes Star Wars feel Alive.

Dooku: Jedi Lost puts you right in the middle of the action and makes you feel like you're on the streets or Serenno bathing in the rich lore of the Star Wars universe. A must read for any Star Wars fan.
