I don't know that Tarkin got the "Darth Plagueis treatment" as the description states. It was a great book, a gripping story, and an in-depth look at the man who came to command the Death Star and how he came to this position of power, but it didn't do for me what "Plagueis" did. Plagueis changed my appreciation and understanding the Expanded Star Wars Universe, gave me a reason to appreciate the Episode I-III movies, and set off my ongoing fascination with Sith history and philosophy. I felt no irresistable urge to watch Episode IV after this book, and can't say that I feel any greater attachment to the character or that corner of the Star Wars Universe. It's certainly worth the read, hence the 4-star rating, but it's not Plagueis.At least not to me.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The story felt rushed. There was A singular story that was doggedly when I felt there could have been more subplots woven in or expanded upon.
Would you recommend Tarkin: Star Wars to your friends? Why or why not?
For diehard fans I would recommend it because it does give one a look at the early years of the empire. However if they were not a huge fan of the series or not that into sci-fi there are better Star Wars books I would recommend they start with.
What about Euan Morton’s performance did you like?
His performance was well done. He did a great job channeling Peter Cushing.
Was Tarkin: Star Wars worth the listening time?
As a diehard fan I enjoyed it.
