It is the 2nd English novel I have read completely in my whole life.It is my enthusiasm towards star wars to make me finish the whole book.The language used in this book is not very hard for me.Although in average, I can only understand one out of 3 sentences completely, I can still follow the flow of the story and enjoy it.I found myself hard to express some delicate comment on this book as I am not able to understand it completely in detail.The main focus of the whole story line is on the war of a planet called Praesitlyn.Thr growth (or fall?) of Anakin Skywalker is not emphasized enough in this novel except that in the last chapter ,there are some sentence said that Yoda planned to raisee Anakin into Jedi Knight due to his good performance.
There are also other imperfections I found in this novel.FirstlyAs Jedi Master Nejaa Halcyon(what a difficult name , I still can’t spell it after reading the whole book ) said that it’s not just a trial for Anakin, but also him.As he had lost his ship in the previous battle with Captain Zozridor Slake plus the council may know he had a wife and son, which are forbidden in the Jedi order.But the novel said nothing on it after the war of Praesitlyn!
Story is not complete esp the ending
Lastly,I don’t understand why the Fleet of both side in the orbitdidn’t fight with each other.kind of weird.I am not sure whether I miss that sentence(sometimes I just skipped that sentence if it’s too hard.) or the author ignore.Hopefully, some day in th e near future , I will re-read it and to understand it more.
Grudo is a funny and interesting character in this novel and he is the one who teach Anakin how to fight a war ,of courcse, in a strategic level.It is pity that he is killed in the middle of the story.But I am a bit confused on why he is so eager to participate the recon mission that finally leads to his death.And Reija Momen , another character which I think she should not be killed.Actually her death is not so neccsary.It Anakin didn’t lose his mind unreasonable in the main control room,She would not be dead.
Another question is , If Anakin is such an one man army why don’t the Republic side just send him with some support trooper to the center to rescue the hostage?and then bombard the communication center?
It doesn’t bring me many new knowledge in the star wars expanded universe , but it’s still an enjoyable experience because it is my first time to read such a long English novel.I wish I can keep this habit of reading eng lish novel untilo I finish all the starwars novel!(at least 190 now and more are coming!)...Continua
