    A Jedi Knight Worthy of Legends

    This book was just pure fun. It tells about Obi-Wan Kenobi's life and the legends about him as a Jedi Knight. The story begins before the Phantom Menace when Kenobi is a padawan to Qui-Gon Jinn. Then it tells of the events that happened before Attack of the Clones. It moves like this through all the movies telling what happens to Kenobi in between each one. The whole plot comes from a secret journal Obi-Wan wrote for Luke during his isolation on Tatooine. Luke reads the journal as the story unfolds. I thought the most interesting part of the book was how Kenobi spent his twenty years on Tatooine. I have always wondered what he did with all his time. I was surprised how busy he kept himself. I am an adult, and I loved this book. Who says an adult has to grow up? Once a Star Wars fan always a Star Wars fan. I saw the New Hope in 1977 and have been reading all the books since. This is a good and entertaining tale for any fan. I just loved it.

    Star Wars the Life and Legends of Obi-Wan Kenobi By Ryder Windham the greatest book ever

    This is a very good and adventurous book. This book is about Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his lifelong story of how he was young till he got old. It started with him becoming the apprentice to Jedi master Yoda until he left the Jedi order to help in an international affair but when he returned no other Jedi master would take him back except Jedi master Qui-Gon-Jin who really didn't want an apprentice but decided otherwise because he felt obi wan had potential and could be a great Jedi master some day it started with a tension between them but they began to bond and they were both confident this bond would grow stronger and it did a couple of years later they were assigned to go to planet Ord Sigatt were obi wan would meet Dexter Jettster a basilisk with four arms and huge fingers he became a trustable friend to obi wan. Once they left that planet obi wan and qui gon were assigned to a negation meeting with Nute Gunray of the trade federation the negotiations didn't go as planned and obi wan and had to escape down to the planet to find out it was going to be invaded. So they saved the senator and headed for Coruscant the center of the galaxy and the home of the Jedi council and the senate building
    This planet is built completely out of citys and buildings. Half way there there power started to fail and they had to make an emergency landing on the planet Tatooine were they picked up a young boy named Anakin skywalker.
    I think this is a great book and is worth the money.

    Obi-Wan's Life By Ryder Windham. I'm a 6th grade student in Glendale, Arizona

    The main character is Obi-Wan Kenobi and he is a Jedi master who survived order 66. Obi-Wan was one of the many Jedi masters who was betrayed by his clone troopers. Obi-Wan thought life was easy because his apprentice was the chosen one, but he was terribly wrong. In fact his apprentice Anakin Skywalker was the only reason order 66 was ever given.
    The plot of my book is all of Obi-Wan's life. The book starts out with Obi-Wan making a new lightsaber. Then he and his master Qui-Gon Jinn are requested to rescue an queen in the Naboo System. After that mission is done it goes to when he is the master and he has an apprentice named Anakin Skywalker. Their mission was to be the queens Jedi bodyguards. Obi-Wan were captured by a traitor to the Jedi Count Dooku. Anakin disobeys his orders and goes to free his master. Then master Obi-Wan and Anakin have to fight Dooku. In their next mission Anakin is now a Jedi knight and they have to free the chancellor. Then Anakin turned to the dark side of the force and tries to kill Obi-Wan. What turns out to be Obi-Wan's last mission is him taking Anakin's son to learn the ways of force. When their ship gets pulled into the Death Star by a tractor beam. That's when master and apprentice have a final meeting.
    There are many settings in my book, but if I had to guess it mainly takes place on Tatooine. The time is a long time ago and in a galaxy far away.
    I think the meaning of this story was to show no matter what happens in life you have to move on.
    I liked this story, but if you didn't know much about the Star Wars series this book will just be confusing.
    This book connects to the world because if somebody you know dies you have to move on. No matter how much you don't want to. I can connect this book to myself because I've been betrayed by someone I've Known to trust.

    Something for the boy who hates reading...

    My sister's stepson would rather play video games than read a book, so I decided to lure him into reading. This book was excellent bait. The cover intrigued him. The size of the book was not overwhelming. After a few weeks I asked him how it was going, he said he really liked it and was surprised that he did. Though it is taking him awhile to get through the book, he has already mentioned the desire for another one.
