All in all. A great book. However. I coudnt finish it. I dropped it the moment clone boy's wife died. I mean..it was to be expected. It made sense. And you -KNEW- it was gonna happen. However. It was far to big a blow for me and kindve just...Well. I no longer wanted to read anymore. Her loss just made the series...empty.

I Read, Therefore I Think
As the masterful Star Wars prequel Attack of the Clones roared across the screen in all its majesty, fans worldwide drooled in anticipation of learning more about these captivating battles known as the Clone Wars. The clones in question were tough, reliable, controversial, remarkable in scope, and a valuable addition to the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Until the dark times. Until...Karen Traviss. When Traviss authored the novel Hard Contact, fans were thrilled at the prospect of being permitted to glimpse the Star Wars galaxy through the eyes of the elite troopers of the Old Republic. Hard Contact was brilliant. The writing was superb, the characters crisp, the views diverse and unoppressive, the clones extremely likable, and the Jedi responsible. The fan base responded positively, and Traviss got her first taste of raw power. No more cowering behind half-rate GI Joe paperbacks for her. This was THE galaxy. This was Star Wars. Karen Traviss proceeded to divide our fandom in a manner that is inexcusible, a manner which she has no right to do so. Her Republic Commando repeatedly tarnish the reputation of the Jedi, the guardians of peace and justice and the personification of everything that is good in a human being, with hatred-mongering and stupidity. The bloodthirsty clones and Mandos were glorified with a vengence, and idealized as the ultimate in productive character. Since then, she has progressively grown more arrogant and more conceited, insulting fans, comparing the Jedi to Nazis, the murderous scum of this earth, using foul language to villify those who possess an imagination, saying that those who feel the emotions of fictional characters are drooling retards, and the hearty list continues. This woman is interfering in our inherent right to unconditional love of the Star Wars galaxy, and we continue to allow her to do so. She is using her talents to turn ourselves against one another, such that she can reap the financial rewards. Please, listen to yourselves. And I know you probably are seriously considering clicking "FLAG THIS REVIEW" at this moment, but ask yourselves this, "Why should the pro-Traviss fans be permitted to speak, while we are forced into silence?"<BR/><BR/>May the Force be with you!
