I, Jedi is a strange beast It s long, twice as long as it should be, since it includes two full story arcs The baffling part is that the first arc is a bizarre retelling of the events of KJA s Jedi Academy Trilogy, told from the perspective of a character who didn t appear at all in the original story I can t honestly fathom what made the editors, or even the author, think that overlap was a good idea Corran is a mega hero Gary Stu on par with Luke, and so in this telling, he is responsible I, Jedi is a strange beast It s long, twice as long as it should be, since it includes two full story arcs The baffling part is that the first arc is a bizarre retelling of the events of KJA s Jedi Academy Trilogy, told from the perspective of a character who didn t appear at all in the original story I can t honestly fathom what made the editors, or even the author, think that overlap was a good idea Corran is a mega hero Gary Stu on par with Luke, and so in this telling, he is responsible for unraveling the mystery at the Academy and defeating Exar Kun All of his main sequences take place away from the main cast, out in the jungle It s the sor
Yeah, we get it, Corran Horn is kickass But this is blatant sue ing of an already sue character Also, the retconning of the Jedi Academy Trilogy is distasteful and very badly done But it does some neat things, so I wouldn t skip it. Okay, so yes, I m in love with Corran Horn My husband doesn t mind because even if Corran really existed, he knows Mirax would kick my butt if I made a move on him I also am a fan of this book because it summarizes the events of the Jedi Academy Trilogy groan and puts them in a better andsensible light hooray The only good thing about the JAT, in my opinion, was The Little Lost Bantha Cub which rocks Not the best thing to read just entering the SWEU, maybe read the original Okay, so yes, I m in love with Corran Horn My husband doesn t mind because even if Corran really existed, he knows Mirax would kick my butt if I made a move on him I also am a fan of this book because it summarizes the events of the Jedi Academy Trilogy groan and puts them in a better andsensible light hooray The only good thing about the JAT, in my opinion, was The Little Lost Bantha Cub which rocks Not the best thing to read just entering the SWEU, maybe read the orig
This was my FIRST EVER buddy read with one of my best friends the wonderful and amazing David Green I realized who I was I saw my reflection in the mirror and heard the wind call to me I had, since before I could remember remembering, always held as the highest possible ideal a commitment to serving others My job was to provide others shelter and shade, to be a fortress against all the cruelty and wantonness out there Selflessness is the only antidote to evil It provides the light that d This was my FIRST EVER buddy read with one of my best friends the wonderful and amazing David Green I realized who I was I saw my reflection in the mirror and heard the wind call to me I had, since before I could remember remembering, always held as the highest possible ideal a comm
It s hard, as Stackpole attempted, to take a previously told tale that of the early days of Luke s Jedi Academy and tell it from a different point of view as part of a different story Foremost, it doesn t work if readers haven t read the previous work SW fans have read Kevin Anderson s Jedi Academy trilogy or the first half of this book makes little sense Secondly, the narrative lacks the punch of the first story as our hero is repeatedly absent or passive during critical events of the orig It
If you cannot recognize the man in the mirror, it is time to step back and see when you stopped being yourself The only first person view in the Star Wars world to date, I am rereading this one for a Star Wars book of the month club.About two years after the Thrawn Incident, Corran Horn is still in the Rogue Squadron when he senses that his wife, Mirax Terrick, is gone Knowing he has Jedi powers, Luke Skywalker convinces Corran that the best way to find her is to cultivate this nascent talent If you cannot recognize the man in the mirror, it is time to step back and see when you stopped being yourself The only first person view in the Star Wars world to date, I am rereading this one for a Star Wars book of the month club.About two years after the Thrawn Incident, Corran Horn is still in the Rogue Squadron when he senses that his wife, Mirax Terrick, is gone Knowing he has Jedi powers, Luke Skywalker convince
I m not entirely sure why people like this book I found the pace unbearably slow, the writing sub par and the plot very dull It s mostly just rambling and wandering with the main problem of the story conveniently pushed to the side until the last fifty or so pages where the action really gets going This book could really be cut in half, or even less The unwitting Force sensitive trope is overused to death in Star Wars, and this is just another example The character to me comes across as rat I m not entirely sure why people like this book I found the pace unbearably slow, the writing sub par and the plot very dull It s mostly just rambling and wandering with the main problem of the story conveniently pushed to
Thoroughly enjoyed my very first buddy read with one of my dearest friends, the lovely and talented Branwen D Full review to come Interesting book about a completely new character and his struggles to become a Jedi. I, Jedi is another book I read when I was younger, and apparently didn t understand or remember very much of it It s a pretty good story set in the expansive Star Wars universe, and I enjoyed my read.It does have some flaws While Stackpole s writing is leaps and bounds better than his writing in the X Wing series, some of it is still wooden, stilted, or just plain unrealistic The voice at the beginning is excellent you get a clear idea of Corran s character Unfortunately, that unique voice I, Jedi is another book I read when I was younger, and apparently didn t understand or remember very much of it It s a pretty good story set in the expansive Star Wars universe, and I enjoyed my read.It does have some flaws While Stackpole s writing is leaps and bounds better than his writing in the X Wing
