it was amazing
bookshelves: star-wars

Heart of Darkness Star Wars style. This book is fabulous in my opinion. Mace Windu kicks butt, and it really explores the bigger philosophical questions of justification for war, hatred through misunderstanding, and whether it was possible for the Jedi to survive the Clone War even if they had caught Palpatine and won militarily. This book makes the gap between Episode II and Episode III human and real rather than some abstract wars between droids that shoot bright lights at each other in space.

This is dark and sad and full of lots of action. I loved the action scenes and the feeling of impending doom throughout the book. I constantly felt like everything was about to go wrong, and was usually right. Palpatine as usual comes out a winner, no matter which side "wins" the conflict in the book.
