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.
- 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.
- 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.
- There are some very adult elements here, a woman getting pulled up by her hair, getting kicked while on the ground, elements of torture, suicide. I am reading this book for fun you know, if I wanted to be depressed I'd read the paper.
- Why is this story in two books?? IF YOU CUT OUT THE GROUP THERAPY IT'D BE FINISHED ALREADY!!!!
- I can't say all the 90's star wars books were great, but rogue squadron, Thrawn, luke and the gang had lots more action and events without all these feelings and repressed anger. So less feelings, more action.
- Less Obi-Wan acting like a spoiled kid.
- Its not clear which Clone Wars episode Durd was in, before reading "Anakin almost died" I nearly had to look it up, so throw that in.
But thats just my opinion, if your alright with people expressing their pain alot this book should be fine.
But Han Solo took Chewies death better then these folks take minor plans going array.
