So question-- I was listening to the Darth Bane Path of Destruction audiobook and the first part right up until he 

gets admitted into the Sith Academy

I thought was really interesting. However now the middle parts where 

he's training in the academy/questions the teachers etc. And now I am at the point where the Sith realize they lost Ruusan I think

has gotten super boring and I don't have the desire to continue it. Is this worth it? I was just thinking of maybe skipping to Darth Plagueis or something. Should I power through the middle parts, does it get better?

I find audiobooks boring, reading the books are much better. I haven't read the Darth Bane books yet, but I have read Darth Plagueis and it's amazing!

I didn't like the Darth Bane novels, but I seem to be in the minority, so....

When I first heard Disney had decanonized the Expanded Universe, I was overjoyed. I liked most of the pre-1999 EU, but the New Jedi Order and Legacy eras effectively ruined the post-ROTJ mythos. With that trash discarded, I was filled with hope, certain the ST couldn't possibly be as bad (or worse). Oh, the naivete, the naivete....

When Disney announced that they would be disregarding the Expanded Universe, I breathed a sigh of relief, thinking "Well, at least they aren't going to give Han and Leia an evil son."  Boy, was I ever disappointed. They threw out most of the good stuff from the EU, and kept the one thing that I most wanted them to scrap.
