Stackpoles best work

This book is probably the best book Stackpolle has written yet. A must read for all Star Wars fans.

If you want this book to make the slightest bit of sense, read the 'Jedi Academy Trilogy' by Kevin Anderson FIRST. I stopped in the middle of 'I, Jedi' because the storyline confused me. Once I read Mr Anderson's three books, this was easier to follow. I think the only reason it was written in First Person is copyright issues. To write in Third Person would be to risk plagiarizing the original story. Anyway, this particular story is about a Rogue Squadron pilot named Corran Horn, who happens to be heir to strong familial ties to Jedi Knights. When his wife disappears, he decides to search for her (duh). However, he must first go to the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 to work on his Jedi skills. This is supposed to help him in his search. WHAT?!?!? This character was a Security Officer at CorSec. He knows how to investigate and seems to be a good detective. Yet, he decides to spend weeks at Yavin 4 instead of looking for his wife. Doesn't exactly qualify him for Husband-Of-The-Year, does it? The biggest problem I had with this book is that it was a spin-off of the above trilogy. Corran Horn was not even mentioned in the original series. A lot of his activities were behind-the-scenes, or totally independent of the background story. In fact, while some of the major plotpoints from the trilogy were going on, Corran is away from the Academy doing something completely different. Yet, he turns out to be one of the strongest Jedi students present. Later, he is one of the FIRST to become a Master. WHAT?!?!? I would only recommend this book if someone HAS read the Academy Trilogy, likes first-person stories, and like over-the-top heroes. Personally, it is one of the more boring Star Wasrs books I've read (right next to 'Rogue Planet').

    Audiobook (Cassette - Abridged)

    I've read this book and love it. This audio book is Abridged. Much of Corran's training, thoughts and the Jedi philosophies are cut out of the Audio version. I haven't a problem with AudioBooks, assuming Audio is still the book. This version was terrible.

    Annoying

    I found the first person narrative style of this book annoying and self-indulgent. It seemed that the author was just trying to plug a mediocre story into the Star Wars frame. The stories of the new Jedi were complete prior to this weak addition and I felt that Stackpole was too obvious in his attempt to explain why there was no mention of his character's role in the previous stories. There would have been no need to weave additions into the tales if he would have just stuck to the Squadron books.
