I read this one when I was little, so I don't really remember much about it. But the idea of him keeping a journal was kind of funny!
I read this my son recommended it, and then added that Darth Maul reminded him of an extreme version of me. Darth Maul trains constantly and pushes himself at every opportunity. Ultimately, his undoing was his solitary focus on revenge, which kept him from seeing an attack. I hope it's only the attitude toward self-improvement my son was seeing.
i kinda just skimmed though this book, there was nothing interesting to read in it. the only thing i remember is that maul fought some student and got a leg injory, and the rest was really boring, and at the end the emporer finished the jornal because darth maul was dead. hey, i was only seven, give me a break.
I bought this solely because of the author ~ she wrote the Jedi Apprentice series, which is just amazing, and even though I'm not a Darth Maul fan, I thought I'd give this a try. I have to say, the book really gives depth and meaning to a character otherwise relegated to two dimensions in the first movie.
My favorite out of the journals from episode 1. I think I liked this one so much because Darth Maul is such a mysterious character, nothing is really known about him or his backgroud. His personality in this book is surprising.

This was definitely the most interesting of the journals, as it goes far beyond what is shown in the film itself. Still, it's a fairly basic account that is not going to change anyone's view of Maul very much at all.
This was much better than the other two journals about Amidala and Anakin, because there was a lot of information aside from what you see in the movie. But still... it does not deserve to be called "good".
This book provides an interesting insight into Darth Maul's character and his training under Darth Sidious.
