    An interesting insight into a beloved character

    This book covers Obi Wan's period on Tatooine, soon after the events of Revenge of the Sith. Before you read, you need to accept that he's isolated himself deliberately and will not enter the galactic stage for the best part of 20 years. Once you get over that and accept that this book is about his settling into a 'normal' life, you begin to enjoy it a bit more. There aren't any galactic scale battles, but the conflicts that exist, are on a much more personal level. I've not read another book by this author, however, I do question how familiar he is with Obi Wan. While sometimes he gets the character spot on, other times, phrases used seem clunky and out of place. I say this as a British reader, expecting to read the speech of an British character. For example, you wouldn't hear an English person, or Kenobi call a younger man, "Son". The story line is engaging for the most part, though loses itself in the middle, as these books often do. I felt like I was reading a mundane melodrama sometimes. Yet, a chapter later, I couldn't put the book down. Overall, this was a good read and an interesting insight into a beloved character from a perspective we haven't seen before.

    Expectations and disappointment

    I wish this book had been different. The title being Kenobi I hoped it would introduce us to his hermit life and more importantly his personal pilgrimage over what had happened. But. This book has hardly anything to do with Kenobi. He is a character, part of the happenings but he is merely reacting to the events which are seriously as if they were from a middle-category movie. His meditations are in best case summaries of the events. Around 70% in the book, there is a short intermezzo having something to do with Ben's inner story but apart from that, this is just a drama/action movie printed on paper. All in all, this is a wasted opportunity on writing a personal novel about Obi-Wan.
