slow and missing one vital part,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kenobi: Star Wars (Hardcover)
Everyone has given this a 5 star on Amazon.co.uk - easily pleased if you ask me or just liking the laid back relaxed novel? I know he's in the desert and frontier life isn't exactly quick but although the story was good and stuff happened there seemed to be a lack of threat for a Star Wars novel.
I like a threat and while I appreciate there is room for all types I wouldn't be rushing back to re read this in a hurry. too mundane, hum drum....
The one vital part, the one thing that would have made the story acceptable and made me love it would have been......
Qui Gon Jinn. Why oh Why did Mr Miller not stick him in? There is a meditation section at bthe end of a few of the chapters and they cried out for himj to answer all the way through, Kenobi could have made great strides in the force but seemed to be going backwards. ' A new teacher I have for you' Yoda told him before going into exile... Not much of one was he? Should have got a supply teacher in to cover him... A bit of internal banter, some training in learning to let go, some thoughts on selflessness as a way to achieve immortallity, all these things I would have hoped to see. But just Obi Wan's own internal dialogue seems the quick easy route and doesn't ask any / pose any awkward questions off the after life but left me feeling a bit let down. A bit of training in the force and development of even a Master like Kenobi would have been great reading and taken you out of the story for a few moments
