Super slow and intensely boring
on 27 July 2015
Just not a Star Wars novel in any recognisable way. These novels are usually very exciting and interesting but this book consists of hundreds of pages of pointless travel through prairie land with the occasional dance scene... no joke. The character of Anakin Skywalker seems purely to serve as a massive freudian slip of the author's in that all he does is endlessly complain (rightfully) that he is sick of being bored out of his mind by the monotonous 'adventure' and a plot which goes missing for about 200 pages. Really not looking forward to 'splinter of the mind's eye' now.
