Not exactly the most acedemic book admittedly, but had to finish nonetheless. It was a pretty good read, fairly short so it wasn't anything strenuous to get through. I would advise it to any Star Wars fan as it's a good story and I wouldn't of minded seeing a live action adaptation, but that boats long sailed for that since the events of this book are set before Phantom Menace. It tells the tail of Qui Gon and Obi Wan working together as padawan and master (although not officially) and ultimately defeating a sith and restoring order to a corrupt planet named 'Thani' (hehe).

I'm not sure why I never read this when I was younger but oh well, it was a good read, one I think everyone should read at some point!

They are pretty good, kind of dark for a comic book, but then again I haven't read one in years. It's an on going series so maybe I'll get to read the rest at some time.
It appears I've been avoiding my reading again all through March, oops :r

It was quite good, quite a cool idea, no where near as good as the film version though.

I started with my favourite characters story, Marv. After reading this, I have to say the film really portrayed the whole story well, especially the characters. Marv is so cool, the ultimate beast who you would want on your side in a bar fight.

I really enjoyed reading this book (probably partly due to the fact I was in sunny Spain at the time). Even though I knew a few thinks about the Warhammer 40,000 universe from when I was a younger I wouldn't say you needed to know any of it to enjoy this book as it just makes a great war against aliens book anyway.
Planning to read...
Suggestions welcome :)
Okay so I've been slacking off for too long this year already, watching films and stuff, nothing much academic, but now I'm back at my uni flat for the new semester, so I need to get my brain active again and so I'm back to getting some reading done!
I usually read a few chapters a night so don't expect any of this read an entire book in a day business ;D
*Suggestions for what books to read are welcome!
