really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, science-fiction, star-wars
Read in October, 2009

Better than what I've come expect from Anderson. oh, the usual cliques and short cuts are there, but there's also a real story.

Every reader understands the significance of the red in Kyp's aura. Why doesn't Luke? Trying to increase the drama, authors often dumb down their characters to the point of silliness.

Cover art sucks. Were these Star Wars book covers done by competing grade schoolers?

Kari Dumbed down. Exactly. Especially given that in the beginning of the story, we're told what a mystery the Yavin pyramids are, and then out the blue, one of the student Jedi just comes out with the whole story behind them. Um, think you could have shared earlier, there?

Ron No one, including the authors, mistakes these for great literature.

message 3: by Kari (new) - rated it 1 star

Kari True enough, but you'd think a professional writer could avoid such glaring mistakes.

I do not understand how Anderson keeps getting invited to play in other people's sandboxes.

Ron Seniority. ;-)
