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!

Fantastic

I loved it. Listen to the story of Dooku from his childhood, to becoming Yoda's Padawan, to becoming a Master to Qui-Gon Jinn and Aveross, to his abandonment of the Jedi Order and taking Asajj Ventress as his apprentice in the dark side. This is the story you want, and the story I hope turns into a film or show.
Brilliant.

A few nit picks

The book overall is good.

But the voice of older Dooku was very off putting with zero effort to sound like him/Lee. So when he was talking with other man i was not always sure who was who.

As for story it was nice to hear about young dooku. And his interactions with Asaji. But I did not like the story being told from her perspective. I bought this book on the hopes of getting to finally learn more about Dooku which we do. But we already know more about Asaji from the new canon then we know about Dooku. So it seems like a waste to get her internal dialogue and thoughts.

A lot of fun

Coming off the previous book of Master and Apprentice, this was very enjoyable and helped flush out Dooku’s fall. I found Dooku’s voice acting a bit unusual at the start, coming off the previous book, but I quickly got used to it and enjoyed it. Full cast made things very entertaining. I only wish it could have been a bit longer.

Doesn't feel like an audio drama

This was described and marketed as an audio drama but still feels like a standard audiobook with a bigger cast. The audio drama part of it seems like a bit of an afterthought as characters were often describing exactly how they feel and what was happening around them. At times it felt like this had been written one way then re-written to fit the audio drama label. The sound effects were mostly just the same ones used in other Star Wars audiobooks. I enjoyed the story for what it was though there weren't many major revelations for the Star Wars galaxy it was a fun adventure.

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.

A great dive into Dooku's life!

Biggest and pretty much only complaint; Dooku's Voice actor was poorly cast. sounds Nothing like him. really made me cringe at first, but then you get used to it and once you do, the book takes on a life of its own. the great dive into his formative years, he's relationship with many of the influential people in and outside the Jedi order all leading up to the moment when he decides to leave the order for good. Just what the doctor ordered after master and Apprentice. make this your next book!

Great first audio drama

This story greatly expands everything we know about Dooku and his backstory. It’s essentially an origin story. I wish more of it wasn’t told through recordings as the vocal effects get old after a while. The story feels somewhere between a clone wars episode and Harry Potter. I know that sounds strange but you will understand. While they barely reference each other, this was a great follow up to Master and Apprentice. Overall a really solid experiment. I hope they make more of these.

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.

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.

An Unexpected Surprise

Very good story with solid acting. my only gripe is the actor who played Dooku. His voice was similar to the other actors and it made it hard to tell who was who sometimes. Overall I enjoyed it though.

The only shortcoming was it being “short”

Great story! Gave a much needed peak into Dooku’s perspective, into his fall from the Light. Felt rushed towards the end, however. Also would have been extra-galactic to see more time between him and Sidious/Palpatine 🤩!!!

Excellent performance! There should be more of these full cast performances! I won’t take anything away from the usual individual performers (Jonathan and Matthew) but I had ALWAYS wanted to hear them perform together!

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.

Learn who Dooku truly is.

This plus Master & Apprentice books are definetly one of the great pieces about the prequel stuff. In movies Dooku was really not portraited well (there was actually one good scene in Attack of the Clones, but that was a deleted scene) than Clone wars managed to give him some sort of story but this book draw a brand new picture of Dooku for me. Present story in a book is not so great and not even that long, but that's because you are mainly studying the fragments of Dooku's history and that's the part where this book excels. Same as in M&A the book show us how useless Jedi Order became in time of Galactic Republic, which I love. And it's far better story of Jedi turning against the Jedi order than Anakin's turn in Revenge of the Sith. It really makes you sorry for how Dooku ended up in that movie.
To narrators: overall great performance, my only issue was with Euan Morton, he is a great narrator but his voice just doesnt fit with Dooku's, after time I got used to it. But for me Dooku's voice and style of speaking in Clone Wars is much closer to me and Euan Morton doesnt hit that note. But that's just nitpicking.
I only wished that this book would be longer, I'd love to learn much more about him, they hit the main plot points, but there are still some which would be nice to learn more about.

Dooku: Jedi Lost - A Tragic Tale

It’s a great listen. It’s fully acted out with a great cast however the voice of Dooku is missing the iconic Christopher Lee vibe. They didn’t use a sound-a-like, but that doesn’t mean the voice actor they did get wasn’t any good, intact he did a great job but I just miss that iconic voice of Count Dooku.

The story is amazing, giving a newfound insight into a character that I thought was one-dimensional. Knowing what I know now about the character will give any fan of the movies a new way to look at the character of Count Dooku and his tragic past.

Just how Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith was a tragedy and makes the audience wish things could turn out different this too has the same effect. Growing up with a young Dooku and seeing the man he becomes is a great story but tragic as well.
