  • Decent

    The first and third installments are the best. The second one, like the film, failed to inspire.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Def. Not Biased Review...

    Grew up with the films and loved them - yes I'm part of the (much) younger crowd. Book 1 sort of bored me. It missed a chance to explore the characters in more depth. The action scenes were disappointing - the epic final battle couldn't quite capture the emotions in the film version (which tbh is like trying to capture lightning in a bottle with that score and choreography). The political scenes were pretty interesting though, and I loved the extra scenes of young Anakin on Tatooine (tho he was a bit romantic for a 9yr old?). 3* overall. Not too sure what to give Episode 2. It somehow managed to simultaneously improve and worsen the main romance at the same time; improving it by re-adding in deleted scenes that displayed greater chemistry and showing internal thoughts of both characters, worsening it by being (unintentionally I hope) REALLY misogynistic, with Padmé being harassed by almost everyone to quit her job and start a family. And she seemed wary and scared of Anakin which made some of their scenes together pretty creepy and toxic. Obi-Wan was great, and Jango and Boba's relationship was sweet. I give 4*. On to Episode 3, my fave of the films (so I'm heavily biased :p). The prose was something I've never seen before, and not in a bad way. Characterisation was just incredible. Someone really needs to give Anakin some therapy, and Obi-Wan a big hug. Scenes with Padmé and the founding of the Rebellion were great, and Palpatine was just an evil mastermind. Anakin's chapters wereheartbreaking to read, aas well as Obi-Wan's when he realises what Anakin has done. Not to mention poor Padmé... This was just one depressing read. It was so well-written I could ignore the shortcomings - that is, the pacing (first third with Palpatine's rescue dragged a bit too long, middle third was incredibly well-paced then the last third and ending was so RUSHED then the book was over!). Also much of Order 66 was absent, and those dad jokes with the Seperatists? Too much. So glad that didn't make it into the film. Personally I thought Obi was a bit too emotionally open and volatile in some scenes - he's supposed to be the perfect stoic Jedi, not Anakin! Still, I'm stubbornly rating this 5* cause it's so darn good for a movie novelisation. So the average rating should be 4* BUT I'M ROUNDING IT TO 5 CAUSE IT'S STAR WARS AND I LOVE ITTTTTTTTT ?¿>[=-°/\
