Format: Paperback
The first half of this novel takes us through "ATTACK OF THE CLONES", but from young Boba's viewpoint. Boba is very innocent when he was a child, but Terry Bisson made a good job of showing us how he learns the harsh truths of life. The Battle of Geonosis is highlight, as Boba watches the Clone Troopers who he grew up around fight with the hated Jedi. Fett's view of Obi-Wan Kenobi is also interesting, treating the Jedi with hatred, and so is his attitude towards Senator Amidala.
The second half of the book follows Boba as he leaves Geonosis, having to come to terms with his father's death. Heading to the moons of Bogden in order to locate Count Dooku, Boba finds himself betrayed, backstabbed and deceived by his "friends", and he even has his ship stolen. It's easy to see why Fett is going to become such a ruthless loner when he's older.
The book ends nicely, with Fett in the uncertain ward of Count Dooku, from whom he must learn self-sufficiency. The book contains a few nice cameos for Star Wars veterans, including Siri Tachi and Aurra Sing, who will become a key player in the next few books.
Although the writing style is a bit basic, and the first half of the book is a little dull, the "original" scenes are fun and fast paced, and very much remeniscant of the "Jedi Apprentice" series. Reccommended for Fett fans.

I for one was disappointed when Lucasfilm revealed that the ever-cool Boba Fett would be ten in Episode II. Thankfully, his dad, Jango Fett, is just as cool as Boba was in the classic trilogy. Here we learn Boba's reactions as he plays his part in Episode II's events and then we get to see what he does after the film, taking his first steps towards being the galaxy's best bounty hunter. This book has lots of nice touches and reveals Boba's relationship towards the various other characters: his father Jango, the bounty hunter Zam Wesell, Count Dooku and Obi-Wan. Most interesting of all is Boba's awestruck reaction to Padme Amidala. That said, the book doesn't truly hit it's stride until after Episode II's events, when Boba learns the hard way that to trust other bounty hunters is a mistake. There's also a couple of nice cameo appearances; Siri Tachi, from the Jedi Apprentice series, and Aurra Sing, the popularised bounty hunter from Episode I. If this book has a downside, it's that it is aimed at the younger readers. That means that the text is very basic in structure, but kids will love it and, if they get over the writing style, adults will too.

Although this book has been written in a basic way, the story itself is superb.
Set around the episode I era, the lessons Boba learns are hard but shows what started him on his life of being "alone"!
I really did enjoy reading this book and thought it was a great introduction into the "Boba Fett - Clone wars" series.
Reading this particular books has persuaded me to carry on with the rest of this series.
If you are a Star wars fan, you will enjoy it. If you are a Boba fett fan, you will love it!
Either way, it is a great book to add to your "Star Wars" Collection.

HASH(0x9c81b6d8) out of 5 stars The other side of Jango Fett. The man behind the mask. 28 Aug. 2006
By King Nanyi - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was way better and more interesting to read than the other books about Boba Fett. It has more depth than the Boba Fett Dark Horse Comics. If you have not read this book, let me tell you that you are missing out on a lot!

The story speaks of relationships and the circle of life. You can relate to Boba Fett as you read about his relationship with his father, Jango Fett. It reminds you of young Anakin Skywalker who has a mother but no father. You get the opposite where Boba has a father and wished he had a mother. But it draws more from that. Witness Boba grow from an innocent wishful boy into the fearsome bounty hunter he becomes. It was very saddening to read about how Boba took the death of Zam Wesell, the sea-mice, and eventually his own father. Even the scene with Boba's only friend, Whrr touched me.

Boba is not the brutal killer as you think he is. This is a man who goes through many life experiences and valuable lessons. This is what made him stand out among the bounty hunters. Read this book!

HASH(0x9c8213c0) out of 5 stars What would Freud have to say? 29 Jun. 2002
By C. M ZIEBARTH - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a pretty decent book that coordinates very well with Star Wars Episode II and its novelization and makes me look forward to more books in the series and to Episode III (thumbs up on the cameos at the end of the book). Boba Fett, as the boy without a mother, stands in contrast to Anakin Skywalker, the boy without a father. You have to wonder how Sigmund Freud would analyze Boba Fett when he doesn't have a mother around to screw him up. Apparently it means he learns bounty hunting techniques and that you should never trust anyone. We also find out that Jango Fett is much like many fathers in our own society who are gone most of the time but still leave their sons a legacy once they are gone for good. And it is interesting to find out that young Boba Fett was an avid reader and library patron. Who would've guessed?

HASH(0x9cac2864) out of 5 stars The Fight to Survive 30 May 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
... Anyway, this was a very good book. Yes, it's written for children, but it's a superb example of a book for children. There's no candy-coating of reality. Boba learns that the world is what it is. Eels eat mice and there's nothing you can do to save to mice, but sometimes the snake whose life you saved keeps you warm at night after your whole world has fallen apart. Or maybe it's a different snake, who has no debt to you but does it anyway. It's just a whole cycle, with good intentions, and conflicting desires, and the fight to survive on every side. Deeper than most children's books get, but what they ought to be. The plot falls down after Terry gets through with the events of the movie, though. The plot stops adding up to anything much, and it would have been a much cleaner ending if it was cut off just after Boba leaves Kamino for the last time. Other than that, it's a good book. And the title is just perfect for it!

HASH(0x9c823528) out of 5 stars Im 12, and this book is great even for me! 10 Jun. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. I'm not known to read very many books, but I have to say, this one was a treat. I liked the Harry Potter series, and I haven't read this much in ages. I got grounded, and I went up to my book, and read for 1 and ½ hours. I got to chapter 20, and decided to call it a night. In reading class at school, I read the 30 or so pages that were left. It was great. I'm ordering the rest of the books in the series tonight. (#2 Crossefire, #3 Maze of Deception, #4 Hunted, #5 A New Threat, and #6 Pursuit.) They are great books, and I reccomend it for any child that is a Star Wars fan. Thanks Star Wars!

HASH(0x9c8212c4) out of 5 stars star wars boba fett - a good book 13 Jan. 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
By the title you may think that this book is just another boring copy of the Clone Wars book, but it's not! It's about what happened after the clone wars. Boba Fett goes to Count Duku who befriends him and leaves him on the filthy planet called Raxus Prime to die. But does he die? You'll have to read it to find out. I think that this book was great because the author really captures the anger and rage Boba has for the Jedi. This book is awesome and I recommend it to all the sci-fi fans and the star wars lovers out there I give this book a 10 out of 10.
