Customer Review

on 3 October 2012
I love the Star Wars films, and love reading. Why not put them both together and read a Star Wars book? It sounded reasonable enough and this trilogy seemed well regarded.

Unfortunately after reading all three, I really cannot see why. The story itself is OK but nothing special. The three books are certainly not epic enough to be placed alongside the films, and could have been compressed into one larger book. The biggest disappointment though is the style of writing. Too many characters have the same mannerisms. I have never heard anyone acknowledge a comment with "point" however multiple characters use it the book, just like the number of characters whose "muscle twitched" in their cheek. Come on, a bit more variety please. Even Thrawn, the jewel in the crown of the series is really rather ineffective as a character, and also adds little as an asset to the story.

Poor writing. If it didn't have Star Wars on the front either they wouldn't get anywhere as highly praised or, those doing the praising need to read more.

Average books at best. The sad thing is, if these are so highly regarded in the Star Wars universe, what are the other ones like?
