I didn't finish it and I don't think I need too. The story was a little bland; there's trouble on a planet and the jedi are sent in like we've never heard that story before. I wouldn't mind so much if the ensuing plot was actually interesting and I cared about the characters. Like this jedi master dies but idk who he is and there's no reason for me to feel any remorse b/c there's nothing really special about him. Another thing I didn't like was the art work. It reminded me too much of a kid's tv ...more

I think the book wasn't that great.

First of all, there were too many characters (of the Jedi Council) that you can't really keep track of much of them. Worst of all, there's all the weird names, the names of the planets and the rebellious warriors, that I just skip reading the names. Can't they settle for something more simpler?

As a youngster I loved Star Wars. I mostly just stuck with the movies and never ventured too far into the so-called "Expanded Universe", but this book was an exception. My cousin got this book years ago, (probably around 2001 when it came out) and it instantly appealed to me. Acts Of War is filled with plenty of action-oriented scenes, both spaceship dogfights and lightsaber usage-the kind of stuff I loved most in the Star Wars series...as a child.

Having not read it for a few years, I can't say

Worth a read if you are already a big fan of the franchise but it might not have much appear to someone who isn't deep into the universe.

This is a filler story. It passes the time but not a particularly impressive story
Mark
Very average pre-Phantom Menace story in which nothing much happened. Disappointing.
