    I Also Recommend:

    Karen Traviss, slow and boring.

    Ms. Traviss writes well but is slow and boring. She creates a story that is too much like real life, long periods of no action, slow and dragging along with short periods of action. It should be more action and actions and less "touchy-feely" exploration. I read to get the touchy feely, thoughts of the characters and so on but there are better ways to do it.
    I am reading L.A. Banks and she does a great job of that, she carries you along. With Traviss you have to fight to get there. I had an acquaintance decide to stop reading the whole SW series (his loss) because of her books.
    I am glad she got the work but there are far better writers for the SW galaxy than she.
    Overall Order 66 is a good book and answers some questions and fills in some holes. I do think that the surrounding galaxy events are missed somewhat. I can not detail them here but they come to mind as I read.
    I wish someone would seriously address the other force users in the SW galaxy, not as adversaries only and off their planets as well as force sensitives who were never trained, there had to be some.
    The Jedi do not look good in this book and that is good as it makes them as people more "human" especially with their institutional blindness to the total situation and to the duping of Skywalker, can one be too good?
    There has to be something about the Clones that got away, what happened, did were more kids born, any force sensitive? What happened to them.
    A galaxy full of stories.

    Sad End

    What else would you expect with a book titled "Order 66," it's gloomy and final. It was also a great addition to the Republic Commando series. I've enjoyed the characters that Traviss has created and look forward to her additonal efforts in the Expanded Universe.

    I've enjoyed the Republic Commando series. Books two and three were great reads and I really enjoyed the fleshing out of the Clone and Mandalorian cultures. This entry was just as good as the others. I much prefer Travis's version of the clones than the one we got on the Clone Wars and in the original Clone Wars multimedia project. It's too bad that the heroes of this series were the kind of "antihero criminals who are looking out for their own" types. I didn't really enjoy that aspect of this book. Knowing though that Book 6 was cancelled due to a pretty public falling out between the Star Wars powers that be and the author made me less excited about this story though.

    When I reached the end of the novel, which was a great ending, it seemed like a better point to jump off this series than the end of Book 5, so I guess I'm done with the Commando books. Unless Imperial Commando 2 is ever released and wraps up this storyline better.

    To quigonreborn. Really?!! Its just a book. It adds some much needed realism to the star wars universe and adds some more emotion. Don't get me wrong I am obsessed with star wars, but this was a much needed addition and didn't deserve an outburst like yours. These novels added a much deserved story to the clones who were basically played out as cyborgs being played with by master puppeteer darth sidious.

    It's Star Wars Episode III from a Clones point of View

    This story almost made me cry. I have never read the other republic commando novels yet but this book was awesome. The begining was a little boring, it was way too descriptive but than again I'm not used to reading fiction. The story line intersects with what occurs before, during, and after episode III. You'll feel the story change from the Old Republic to the Empire by the end of the story. This book is a must have for any star wars fan.

    Can't Wait

    I am a huge fan of all the Republic Commando novels, and I must say that I can't wait for the 4th and final book to come out! The action is intense! The story line is one of the best that I have ever read as far as Star Wars novels are concerned. Keep it up Karen Traviss

    Not Bad

    Nancy Traviss did better than expected in my opinion, but expectations were low. Because of the setting/timing I thought this would be a real blood bath. Due to the clone perspective, this wasn't as unsettling as Revenge of the Sith. She continued to develop the clone and Mando characters well and leaves it wide open for sequels. I like seeing the story from their perspective and would like to see how it develops under the Empire... just maybe a different writer.
