It was interesting to read this volume, as it is a continuous story written by three separate authors.

The Phantom Menace: 2 Stars
I was not particularly impressed with this book, which felt like reading a slightly expanded version of the script. Brooks excelled at describing action sequences (which one could just as easily enjoy by watching the film), but included little additional insight into the characters. Jar Jar Binks was equally annoying in the book as the movie, making The Phantom Menace
Star Wars: The Prequel Trilogy
By Terry Brooks, R.A. Salvatore and Matthew Woodring Stover

Star Wars: The Prequel Trilogy was a lot better than I thought it would be. Obviously, it had the 3 books for the episodes I -III, but surprisingly gave a lot of back story that may have helped the movies. Each book is written by a different author, each whom gave an interesting on their interpretation on novelising the movie.

Episode I: The Phantom Menace – 4 Stars

The Episode I novelisation was defiantly a
The book itself was a bit larger than what I was picturing in my mind. Reminds me of that scene in The Jane Austen Book Club where the guy smacks that gigantic book with Jane Austen's entire collection in it onto the table. I would have rather had the three books in a smaller size seperately. Aside from that, I loved Phantom Menace (epsiode I book). I would give that book alone 5 stars. Terry brooks did a great job, and for me, seemed to enhance the story line, characters, and even the growing r ...more
No obviously goofy portrayals here, unlike the movies.

A long read but better than the films!

A lot of Star Wars fans give the prequel movies a lot of crap, and some of that is merited. (I'm looking at you, Jar-Jar!) The books, however, are doubly better than the films. There is a wealth of information and story in these books that were missing from the films. It fills in a lot of questions I had and overall makes the whole trilogy more cohesive. Although some fans may give this trilogy short shrift, to me it was a great, progressive of a story to im

Now that I'm a little bit farther into Star Wars: The Prequel Trilogy, although I'm still on Episode I, I absolutely love this book. It tells the story of young Anakin Skywalker, and his journey growing up as a padawan. But this is not just the story the movie followed, because there is so much more detail. You can really feel what the characters are feeling at the moment, much more than you could in the movie. If anybody has seen the movie, or is just trying to pick up a really interesting book ...more

Oddly enough, my favorite part book out of the trilogy was "The Phantom Menace." Terry Brooks did a fantastic job making a so-so movie a great book! The story line of the prequel trilogy is fantastic. Kudos to George Lucas for creating a universe that is so easy to get into.

I honestly never thought I'd be one of those guys who read Star Wars books, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the ones I have read.
The first episode is okay, the second better, and the third was awesome.
LOVE THIS!!! It give allot of insight on what's going on in Anakin's head!
