Book Description

25 Feb 2010 Star Wars (Book 59)
The first installment of a two-book Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker adventure, set against the backdrop of the Clone Wars! Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are on a secret mission to one of the many worlds caught in the middle of the struggle between the Republic and the Separatists. A pastoral planet, Lanteeb wants only to be left alone to survive -- but it is the source of what could be one of the most devastatingly destructive weapons ever. If this potential weapon were to fall into the hands of the Separatists, uncounted worlds would fall. But should the Republic succeed in destroying it first, one world that needs it to survive will be annihilated. A frightening dilemma that Obi-Wan and Anakin will have to untangle, if they can get in and out of the occupied planet alive...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fancy a cup of tea Mr Jedi? 12 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read "Wild Space", Karen Miller's first attempt at Star Wars, I wasn't expecting much from this book. However, a few pages in and I felt pleasantly surprised. She seemed to have done her research and her portrayal of the characters was much better. Certainly Obi-Wan and Anakin were very much like they are in the Clone Wars TV series. It was also good to read about another minor character from the TV series. It makes it a lot easier to visualise. I also felt it was a lot more engaging than the first book and didn't cause me to fall asleep every page.

However, like with her first book, she has a tendency to labour the point a bit too much. In "Wild Space" it was page after page of the same childish bickering between Obi-Wan and Bail Organa with nothing much else happening. This book was page after page of light-hearted banter between Obi-Wan and Anakin and later on page after page of arguments between the two. I felt like I was reading the same page over and over again. For heaven's sake Karen, we get the point!

It seemed to me like blatant page filler for what is otherwise a book with a very thin plot. There wasn't much substance to it and once they find out whatever it is they were sent to find out I was suddenly reading a different book. Seriously, all of a sudden they were sitting around having cups of tea with the person they were supposed to be rescuing and then having both philosophical debates and full blown arguments about something or other. Then I fell asleep.

It's certainly by no means the best book but I'm going to sit on the fence and give it 3 stars rather than 2 because I was expecting a lot worse.

Its good to share your feelings isn't it.
Good to get anything unsaid out there for people to hear. It also helps to deal with them and put them behind you, turn from the dark side as it were.
Except, wait, Anakin never did deal with his feelings did he. Thats how he lost himself to the dark side after all. Anakin never faced the things he did and his experiences and used his jedi training to deal with his anger.
If only he'd expressed his feelings LIKE HE DOES HERE ON EVERY SINGLE PAGE.

And Obi-Wan also deals with an inner anger and on nearly every page.
A trained jedi you only raised his voice a few times in the prequels here is angry with every single person
he comes in contact with but its okay he keeps it inside.....sometimes.
This is completely different from the Obi-Wan I know from the series and books.
Except, wait, according to Clone Wars: Wild Space he knows all about Anakin and Padme,warns Padme off a relationship with Anakin AND THEN TOTALLY MISSES ANAKING AND PADME HAVING A RELATIONSHIP FOR THREE YEARS.

Pros:
- There's a battle at the start.
- A scientist who feels guilt over what she's doing.
- Some great writing in the preparation of the trip (to planet boring).
- Some interesting thoughts from Ashoka.

Cons:
- Obi-Wan and Anakin talk about there feelings so much they actually tell each other to stop talking about there feelings, which is what I was doing.
- Obi-Wan, in the middle of keeping back more rage then a darkside lunatic, says "Oh Anakin" on practically every other page. And than screams whatever his latest bizzare opinion is.

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Clone Snores' more like. 3 Oct 2011
By Ian Tapley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
THE STORY:
Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker undertake a secret undercover mission to the planet Lanteeb where they discover that the Separatists have created a terrible new bioweapon. Their mission of investigation becomes a desperate attempt to destroy the weapon, rescue a kidnapped scientist and defeat overwhelming enemy forces.

WHAT'S GOOD:
Oddly, this book's best bits all lie in the parts which don't feature the primary plotline or the main characters. They consist of Senator Bail Organa's work on Coruscant amid his increasing distrust of Chancellor Palpatine, a rescue mission undertaken by Ahsoka Tano and the newly introduced Jedi Taria Damsin and, for me best of all, a rare insight into Yoda's fears about the war as a whole and his worry for Obi-Wan and Anakin in particular.

WHAT'S BAD:
Frankly, most of the book. Miller did a great job of exploring the already very familiar character of Obi-Wan in 'Wild Space' but here her characterisation was so far off that I barely recognised my favourite Jedi. There's even a scene where he genuinely considers murdering the kidnapped scientist in cold blood to end her work on the bioweapon! Anakin is persistantly annoying too, yo-yo-ing from whining hissy-fit to outrageous double-standard and back again. Whilst that is more in keeping with his character, it makes him completely impossible to sympathise with as a protagonist. So, considering that almost nothing interesting happens throughout the entire book with Anakin and Obi-Wan basically just hanging out together, it's particularly bad that the two main characters have been so badly realised. Finally, the villain of the piece is decidedly lacklustre too. Lok Durd appeared in the TV series (voiced by George Takei!
